Different Kinds of Shingles for Different Needs

Your choice in roofing material will affect your home’s beauty, protection and energy efficiency. As the area’s top general contractor, Aim Roofing and Construction can offer you a wide range of quality shingles. Depending on your budget and needs, there is a shingle type that best suits your home. We discuss their different features today, to help you make an informed decision:


This shingle line is known for its unmatched beauty. It’s a popular choice among homeowners looking to improve the curb appeal of their homes. Designer shingles are available in a variety of unique designs and color palettes. They also feature layered shingles that create depth, giving your home an air of sophistication.


Three-tab shingles are some of the most economical options on the market. Their comparatively low price, however, doesn’t mean they can’t deliver quality performance. As a GAF-certified roofer, we can offer you their asphalt shingles that feature the brand’s StainGuard® Protection. This gives their products excellent resistance against algae, preserving their beauty for years. GAF shingles have also passed two of the toughest wind tests in the industry, so you have less to worry about during a storm. 

Faux Slate

Unlike the real thing, faux slate only weighs about the same as an asphalt shingle and costs much less for the same benefits. Even up close, this composite material looks like actual slate, so your home can benefit from its beauty. Since it can be slippier than real slate, we recommend installing snow guards if you live in an area with snowy climate.


Metal shingles are available in a variety of textures. Their main advantages include easy installation and their light weight. Metal is also one of the greenest roofing materials on the market. When painted white, metal can also turn into a “cool roof,” which can significantly improve your home’s comfort and energy efficiency.
