Asphalt Shingle Roofs

Distinguished Stone Coated Steel Roof Services in Cape Coral, FL>


Stone Coated Steel Roofing has been specifically designed to resemble the look of traditional Asphalt Shingles but without the inherent ongoing issues that many home owners face, such as frequent replacement due to weathering or hail damage. 

It’s truly an industry first – protecting gaps, screws, and all fastening elements exposed to the elements, making your roof more reliable, watertight, and durable than ever before.

Extensive research and development in the design process makes Stone Coated Steel not only the most water-proof stone-coated steel shingle on the market but the most realistic looking and fastest to install. Made from the highest quality raw materials ensures the durability and strength is second to none. The shingles and accompanying accessories are engineered to interlock and overlap to resist wind lifting and keep out nature’s elements.

Types of Asphalt Shingle Roofs

There are three types of asphalt shingles to consider: three-tab asphalt shingles, architectural asphalt shingles, and premium asphalt shingles.

  • Three-tab Asphalt Shingles: These shingles are phasing out of the market in SWFL due to the inferior quality and lack of wind rating. You can identify these shingles on the roof by their cutouts which make them look like three separate pieces.
  • Architectural Asphalt Shingles: Laminated with an additional asphalt layer and bonded with asphalt sealant, they have a more defined, structural look and are more durable and waterproof than three-tab asphalt shingles. They’re also energy efficient while notably increasing the value of your home and they can last up to 50 years.
  • Premium Asphalt Shingles: As the name suggests, these are luxury versions of asphalt shingle roofing. Created to emulate high-end cedar or slate roofing, they’re still about ten times cheaper.

In addition to these three types, there are also different materials that your shingles could be made of:

  • Fiberglass Shingles: Made with a combination of woven fiberglass as the base, asphalt coating, and ceramic granules on top, these materials create a waterproof and UV-protectant shingle while also being extremely lightweight and thin due to its lower amounts of asphalt.
  • Organic Mat-based Shingles: This kind of asphalt shingle roofing has a recycled felt paper layer for its base. They’ll be heavier, thicker, and slightly more expensive than fiberglass shingles but they’re also more rugged and flexible. Downsides include being less fire resistant and susceptible to warping.
