Shingles are an attractive option for many homes in New Mexico and the entire country. But they’re not all the same; some are more durable and weather-resistant than others. At EverGuard, we use a product called “Sure Nail Technology,” which offers a triple layer of protection for your home’s roof.
Shingles enhanced with Sure Nail technology will brace themselves against storms or high winds with the aid of a woven fabric that’s embedded into the shingle itself. Installation of this type of roof is just one reason that we’re the most-trusted source for asphalt shingles in Albuquerque and the surrounding area. When you’re in need of shingle installation, contact us today to get started! We specialize in architectural shingle installation.
Asphalt Shingles 101
Did you know that more than 12.5 billion square feet of asphalt shingle products are made in the United States every year? According to the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association, that’s enough to put a roof on more than 5 million homes.
Shingles are popular among homeowners for many reasons: They’re affordable, they’re durable in a variety of weather conditions, and they have a relatively long lifespan.Shingles can be made from organic materials such as recycled wood fibers, or they can be produced from a base of glass fragments.
Then there are the different sizes of shingles to consider. Three-tab shingles are a popular option, mainly due to their affordability. But they’re also the least-thick on the market. Architectural shingles, on the other hand, come in different shapes and sizes. Because they overlap and have a heavier base, they tend to give your roof a more artistic appearance. And they’re not just for show; architectural shingles weigh about 50 percent more than three-tab products, which means they’ll be more resistant to stormy weather.
If the roof of your home is more than 20 years old, it’s time to talk about having it replaced. You have many options when it comes to asphalt shingles in Albuquerque, and we’re happy to go over all of them with you. Shingle installation is just one of our specialties!
