Since 1889, folks in and around Nashville, TN have counted on roofing service from the H. E. Parmer Company, the oldest roofing business in Nashville. Many types of roofing materials can be used such as slate, copper, tiles, and 3-tab asphalt shingles. Finding a reputable company that can help you with all your roofing needs, from installation to roofing repairs in Nashville is important for your peace of mind.
Most folks have traditional 3-tab asphalt roofing shingles on their home, but some opt to install architectural shingles instead. Architectural shingles may also be called laminated, dimensional, or composite shingles. They have a heavier base mat so that many layers of material can be adhered to it.
This gives them a three dimensional look. Standard three tab shingles are flat with no 3-D thickness. Architectural shingles weigh about twice as much as 3-tab shingles. Architectural shingles were developed for more expensive homes because the homeowners wanted the look of cedar shakes or shingles with the performance of asphalt shingles. Architectural shingles usually have a minimum warranty of 25 to 30 years. Due to their weight, they provide better wind resistance that is rated for 80 to 120 mph while 3-tab asphalt shingles are usually rated for 60 mph winds.
The most expensive as well as the heaviest roofing material that can be installed is slate. As you probably know, slate is a rock that comes from quarries in Spain for use in Europe and from the North-eastern US for use in North America. There are many more slate mining operations around the world such as Brazil, China, and Wales. Slate has an incredibly long life expectancy. Buckingham Palace in England has a slate roof, and an 8th century English chapel has a slate roof that has been in service for over 1,200 years and may last for 1,200 more! That is why slate is often guaranteed for the builder’s life, since builders hardly ever live more than 1,000 years!
