Composite Roof Shingles
Composite roofing is the top roofing choice in the Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR areas. This type of roofing is typically comprised of asphalt shingles that are combined with either fiberglass or fiber mat then coated with minerals. Many people choose this type of roofing due to its wide availability in a variety of styles and colors and because it tends to be the most affordable choice.

Organic Roof Shingles
Many homeowners strive to build or update their property with the most earth-friendly products or sustainable materials. The idea of organic roof shingles might bring to mind a home covered in thatch, plain wood shakes, or natural stone. Advances in shingle construction, however, now brings the option for standard, durable, and cost-effective asphalt shingles with an organic twist.
3 – Tab Roof Shingles
Although they are becoming less popular than other forms of roofing, 3-tab roof shingles are still an excellent, budget-friendly option for residential and commercial buildings. They may not be fancy, but the simple, clean look can match some home styles well. Popular with rental properties and on lower-price houses, three-tab roof shingles provide protection for years to come.
Architectural Roof Shingles
The majority of residential properties in North America have architectural asphalt roof shingles these days. They have been popular for many years and come in a wide variety of colors and styles to suit any particular taste. In years past, shingles that looked flat were more popular, such as the three-tab roof shingles, but the architectural version has surged in popularity.
Wood Roof Shingles
For a rustic or antique look on a residential home, wood roof shingles or cedar shakes are an excellent option. From the time they are installed to years down the road when they are weathered to a silver gray, wooden roof materials provide protection and a certain sense of style that many people want for their property.
Slate Roof Shingles
Historical homes and public buildings are frequently topped with gently colored natural slate tiles or warm clay tiles that have lasted hundreds of years. Nothing beats the durability of actual stone tiles or clay tiles on the roof, but these materials are heavy, more expensive, and prone to cracking and flaking as the years go by.
