Frequently Asked Questions

What Are Shingles?

Roof shingles are similar to roof tiles. Unlike tiles however, shingles are available in a greater variety of materials such as felt, wood and metal. This provides a greater choice of styles for homeowners.  

When being fitted shingles are typically overlapped in some way. As no mortar is required and they’re very lightweight, shingles are considerably easier and more affordable to fit. 

Roof shingles are particularly popular in the United States, where bitumen shingles are a favourite. Whilst shingles are not as common in the UK, felt and metal varieties are growing in popularity. This is due to their natural appearance and manufacturing improvements extending their lifespan.

What Type of Roof Shingles Are Best?

The most common type of shingles includes asphalt or bitumen, metal, and wood. These have been available for decades and have a proven record of superb durability.

Whilst asphalt or bitumen shingles offer a lifespan in excess of 15 years, they can appear less desirable as they age and don’t offer a natural appearance. So whilst they are typically the low-cost option, they may not suit every type of project.

Should you want a natural looking solution that ages beautifully, cedar shingles may be a perfect choice. These usually use premium wood which ages as naturally as the environment surrounding your property. They can also provide a lifespan in excess of 20 years.

Metal shingles, on the other hand, offer unrivaled durability. Another benefit of metal shingles is that they remain relatively consistent as they age. Whilst these are a mid-priced solution, they can offer a life expectancy in excess of 30 years.

Can Shingles Be Used on Cladding?

Yes, many roof shingles can be equally used as cladding. Simply refer to the technical data and installation guide, where it will confirm whether they can be used at angles of 90 degrees.

When using shingles as a cladding solution, different installation processes may need to be followed. This is to minimise the chances of any uplift or degradation caused by driving rain.

How Much Do Roof Shingles Cost?

Roofing shingles can cost as little as £7 per square metre. This means they’re incredibly cost-effective as well as looking great and being easy to install. This makes roof shingles an excellent choice for both small and large roofing projects.

How Do I Match Roofing Shingles to My House Colour?

The best colour to match your property depends on the colour and style of your home. Traditional colours for shingles include grey, brown and black. If you’re looking for something different however, we have shingles available in reds, greens, blues and more. If your home is white, grey or blue, we’d suggest grey or black shingles to create a more muted look. If your home features natural siding such as stone or earth tones, opt for brown shingles to coordinate with its style.

Do You Need Felt Under Shingles?

While a layer of underlay or felt isn’t strictly necessary, it’s very advantageous to install one beneath your shingles. This membrane will act as another layer to prevent water ingress. This is important to protect the structural integrity of your roof, as well as to prevent moisture damage, rot or mould.
