When it comes to getting a new roof, most people would probably want a slate or clay tile roof. However, these materials are very expensive. Buying enough to cover your roof as well as any other materials and labour is not possible for everyone. Sometimes disaster strikes and you need a new roof at short notice. If you've not actively saved up to cover the cost of a new roof, what you actually want may be out of the question.
If you want to save as much money as possible, roof shingles are for you. Shingles can be made from a variety of materials, but are most typically made from bitumen/asphalt. They're similar to roofing felt but more durable. Because the materials used to make them are much less difficult to get hold of, they are far cheaper than tiles. Whereas slate or clay needs to be extracted from the earth, bitumen shingles are manmade so don't require as much effort to source. This means making shingles is a less expensive process. The money saved in creating the shingles is passed on to you.
Shingles may not last as long as tiles, but they still have all the qualities needed to make a good roofing material. They're water-resistant, so will help keep your home dry. Natural roofing materials may be harder, but shingles still stand up to most impacts. Even if something does have enough force to dislodge or damage, shingles are cheaper and easier to replace. So any damage won't be as much of a setback as with tiles. Shingles last around twenty years. Not quite the possible hundred years of slate and clay, but still a relatively long time. The lower cost of shingles means that having to replace them a little more often isn't a huge financial issue.
You don't have to worry about having an unappealing roof with shingles. It's possible to get them in various styles. Shingles can be made to resemble wood, slate, clay and more. So unless someone gets incredibly close, or you tell them, only you'll know you don't have the real thing.
