3-Tab Roofing Shingles

These types of shingles are considered the most basic option in the world of roofing construction. The basic quality has the added advantage of being the best shingle option for lower price points as well. The material is extremely cheap and economical. Aside from that, the installation process is easy and requires less labor! These advantages combined allow us to charge less for the overall project. While the price may be lower, the quality does not drop off with these products. When it comes to wind resistance and durability, they do not produce as good results as a metal or slate roof. But they don’t slack either, providing an upwards of 100/MPH of wind resistance protection! 3-tab styled shingles are also the easiest shingle type to replace as well. Any service calls you may require will be short, easy, and good on your wallet as well. Thanks to the low labor required!

What Our Clients Say

We had an insurance issue and had to have our roof completed in two weeks or we would have had our insurance cancelled. Cortland Bennet came by and gave us the best estimate and completed the job with time to spare. They even worked on Sunday. There work was professional and job was done perfect. Would use them again. Highly recommended.

Rodd R.

We recently had our old cement tile roof removed and a new shingle roof installed by Old Time Roofing. We got estimates from three companies and chose Old Time Roofing because we liked the fact that their prices were very competitive, they do not sub contract and had been in business for over thirty years. David Williams who came out and explained their process and options was professional but very friendly. The work was done from start to finish in two days. The roofers were really hard working, and cleaned up any debris both days. We are thrilled with the new roof and would highly recommend this company.

Lyn W.

We made contact with Old Time Roofing for them to come out and give us a quote on a replacement roof on our house. The gentleman "Jack" that came out was very professional, punctual and educated about roofing! Jack did an inspection of our roof and gave us a very competitive quote. After reviewing all our quotes and rereading all the customer reviews, we feel that we went with the best company for the job! And we are so glad we chose Old Time Roofing!!! The roof looks great! The team that came to do the work were polite and professional and all was cleaned up with no evidence of the work done but a beautiful new roof!
We can honestly recommend this company to our friends and family.
Thank you Jack and Old Time Roofing!

Architectural Shingles

These products are the perfect mid-point between their 3-tab and slate shingle family members. Combining the good price point of 3-tab shingles with the durability and protection offered by slate shingles! Architectural shingles have an extra layer special laminate protection not offered by 3-tab shingles. This adds some heftiness and weight to your entire roof while also working to increase its wind resistance and durability! Architectural shingles are resistance to algae and other plant growth. A detriment commonly associated with 3-tab shingles and also are more aesthetically pleasing, helping to add curb appeal and value to your property. Thanks to their design, architectural shingles are also resistant to curling. This is an extremely common problem with cheaper shingle designs. These qualities allow you to perform less maintenance and scheduled repairs for your roof. In return, saving you more money in the end!

Slate Shingles

To some consumers, slate shingles are the cream of the crop when it comes to discussing shingles. They offered unrivaled durability and protection from the elements. Like their architectural counterparts, slate shingles are extremely effective at preventing curling and algae growth. In addition to this, they provide even more wind resistance and durability as well! The best case scenario for a slate roof is literally 200 years. Yes, you read that right! 75 to 200 years is the lifespan of a properly maintained roof. This is the best quality you can receive for your money in the world of shingle roofing!
