How to fit roof shingles
Are roof shingles the same as roof tiles?
The short answer is no. Both shingles and tiles are used to cover pitched roofs, but shingles tend to be cheaper than tiles and have a lower life expectancy. However, recent developments in technology means they are now very durable and are often designed to last 20-25 years. Roof shingles are available in a wide range of materials, such as bitumen, wood, plastic or metal.
Roof shingles are a popular roofing solution, as they’re cost effective, long lasting, and available in an extensive range of materials, colours and even shapes. So they are usually suitable for most homes, sheds and other outdoor buildings.
