Get It Covered with Roofing Shingles

Roofing shingles are individual overlapping parts - usually flat rectangular shapes laid out in rows in a single layer to guarantee waterproofing.

Generally, shingles are laid from the bottom of the roof upwards, and the lower edge of every row overlaps the previous row by about a third. While there was traditionally a copper or lead sheeting cap at the roof ridge, modern roof shingles are more likely to have a plastic underlay.

Wood, slate, cement, ceramic and asphalt have all previously been used to make these roofing products. But fibre-glass based asphalt shingles are now more common because they are less of a fire hazard.

Shingles can also be used as vertical cladding. Roofing shingles come in an attractive range of shapes and colours, and are both lightweight and durable. Shingles are a cost-effective roofing option and very easy to install. They won’t rot, and resist ultra-violet rays. They can be used when working on the roofs of a wide variety of buildings, including new build projects or refurbishments of everything from stables and chalets to garden buildings. They work with a variety of roof pitch angles, from 15° to vertical.

Whether the building you need a roofing solution for is temporary or permanent, domestic or commercial, residential or recreational, roofing shingles offer a long lasting, visually appealing and fully weatherproof roof finish.
