Asphalt Shingle Roof Specialists
As a shingle roof contractor, AKVM employs a team of roofers experienced in the installation and repair of all types of asphalt roof shingles. As the most popular type of roofing shingle in North America, asphalt shingles are affordable, durable and provide the desired aesthetic value to each home.
There are three main types of asphalt roofing shingles available to Florida homeowners:
Strip (3-tab) Shingles - These are the most basic type of asphalt roofing shingles. Introduced in the early 1900s and becoming the go-to roofing material by 1939, strip shingles are thin, as they are made from a single layer of asphalt, and have a flat appearance that can resemble slate or subway tile. They’re lightweight and are the most affordable shingle out there. Strip shingles ruled the market well into the 1980s, before designer shingles appeared. Today, strip shingles can typically be seen on inexpensive tract homes or very old homes.
Architectural (Dimensional, Laminate) Shingles - These shingles are the most popular asphalt shingles today. Made up of two or more layers of asphalt, they provide a deeper, multidimensional appearance to the roof and are typically created to mimic the look of wood shake or natural slate. These shingles are thicker and provide more protection from damaging wind or hail.
Luxury Shingles - As the highest-quality laminated shingles available, luxury shingles provide a combination of aesthetic value and function that dimensional shingles can’t beat. Offering premium protection from weather and other potentially damaging elements, these shingles tend to be the most realistic representation of traditional shake and natural slate roofing.
