In contrast to the material, both the shape and the color of the shingles are a matter of taste. Roof shingles made of wood are very common and have a very good price-performance ratio. They are made of many of the native woods, are less fire resistant and are fixed to a better grip with crossbars or stones. Shingles made of slate are completely weather-resistant and almost fireproof. The roofs can not rot and do not need maintenance. Roof shingles made of aluminum are often used for larger roofs. These are not as pretty as shingles made of wood, clay or slate, but cost in direct comparison less money. Therefore, they are used in many commercial objects. A particularly inexpensive and reliable solution are shingles made of bitumen. The bitumen shingles are offered in the trade in a large selection and are also ideal for laying yourself for experienced home improvement.

In addition, the buyers save the maintenance costs. A particularly inexpensive and reliable variant are shingles made of aluminum. If the optics are not so important, you will get sturdy shingles at a reasonable price. Another option is the modern shingles made of bitumen.
