What You Need to Know About Roof Shingles

What Are Roof Shingles?

Roof shingles are individual rectangular pieces (available in various materials) that are laid out on your roof to overlap one another and create a protective layer.

This layer improves your roof’s durability and provides style to your home’s aesthetic. Shingles are typically used for homes with sloped roofs, as they are not suited for flat roofing.

When Should Shingles Be Replaced?

Your roof’s shingles should be replaced every 20-25 years. That said, extreme weather conditioners like heavy wind can remove shingles from your roof, and create a need for repair or replacement.

Why you need professional shingle installation

Properly installed, high-quality shingles are the first line of defence for your home and your investment against environmental damage.

Shingles help to divert water away from the surface of your roof to protect your home against water damage and deterioration from the elements. This protective layer also helps to make sure your roof lasts longer and can resist environmental pressures.

Shingles play an essential role in protecting your roof, which is why you want to make sure they are installed by professional roofing contractors like Professional Roofers.

Types of Residential Shingles We Use

Our shingles are available in a variety of colours and materials to suit the unique needs of homeowners. When you work with us, one of our in-house estimators will walk you through the process to help you identify the right shingles for your home.

First, however, get acquainted with the main types of shingles that roofing companies work with:


Asphalt shingles are one of the most commonly used types of shingles for homes. They can last anywhere between 20 to 50 years dependant on the brand.

At Professional Roofers, we only source asphalt shingles from high-quality brands like IKO. There are two types of asphalt shingles you may come across:

  1. Organic: Organic shingles are made with recycled paper (also known as fibre substrate) and asphalt, and then compressed under high pressure. They are flexible yet heavy, making them durable and resistant to external factors.
  2. Fibreglass: Instead of having a layer of paper, fibreglass shingles have a layer of glass. Also known as composition shingles, they are lighter than organic shingles, cheaper, and more resistant to heat and lifting.


Over the years, metal shingles have become increasingly popular. We offer metal roofing repair and installation to ensure that your roof is durable and long-lasting. We use metal shingles from high-quality brands like WestMan Steel and DECRA, as well as Basic Metal Roof shingles.
