A man’s home is his castle, right? It is there protecting everything that matters most in life, your family and personal belongings. So what is protecting that castle? Your roof is there night and day, standing guard over your home, keeping you warm and dry.
Though frequently taken for granted, your roof is a large part of what keeps you and your family comfortable year around. Beachy Contracting is here to ensure that it continues to do so for years to come.
There are many different styles of residential roofing, with the most common including shingles, tiles, metal, and even flat roofing systems. Rest assured that we are experts in all of them.
The most popular residential roofing system is shingles. Why? They are an extremely cost-effective system with wonderful waterproofing properties and significant lifespans. Most people think of the traditional asphalt shingle when considering a shingle roofing system. However, there are actually 18 different shingle styles to consider.
With such a wide array of options, shingle systems are definitely worth consideration for your home’s roofing system. Some of their benefits include:
Cost. Initial outlay is significantly less than many other residential roofing options. With a family to support, shingles is a very budget-friendly option.
Versatility. Available in a wide range of colors and styles, even the traditional asphalt shingle offers something for just about every taste. However, shingles are also available in architectural designs, wood or shake styles, clay, or even slate appearance.
Durability. Shingles last an average of 15 to 30 years, depending on manufacturer, maintenance, and location.
Strength. As with most items, there are varying strengths of shingles. Impact resistant shingles for example, can withstand large hail and high winds – up to 110mph!
Environmental Consciousness. Asphalt shingles are recyclable. In fact, on tear-off, many shingles are recycled and re-utilized as asphalt paving for roads or trails. This not only reduces the use of resources but also reduces the impact to our landfills.

Your home may not be a single-family dwelling. Instead, you may live in a condo, apartment, co-op, or other type of multi-tenant building. Shingle roofing systems will work great on these buildings, as well.
These types of buildings are generally managed by either a committee or a property manager. Beachy Contracting is delighted to work with whomever is in charge of handling the roofing on your building. We will sit down and discuss your existing roofing system and make recommendations based on the building’s needs, roofing styles preferred, and overall goals for the building itself.
Not all roofs are appropriate for all roofing styles. If the building roof is flat or low-slope it is a better candidate for a single-ply or coating option, for example. Working with an experienced professional ensures your building gets the best possible system for its style.
