About Roofing Shingles
A good roof wards off rain, snow, sleet, marauding squirrels, and a thousand other menaces, but even the best roof is going to spring a leak sooner or later. Roofing shingles give you the tools you need to give your roof a hand in keeping itself in tip-top shape. Wooden roofing shingles are designed to be easily installed by hand or with power nailers, often by a crew of just a few workers, once an existing roof has begun to show signs of disrepair. A new roof is the only surefire way to make sure that your house stays secure and protected from the elements. Asphalt roofing shingles absorb heat more readily than their wooden counterparts and also shed rain and snow with greater ease, though they are much heavier. Either option can be used to stave off damage to important structural elements of your roof and the house beneath it, keeping the battle against the weather up top where it belongs. You can find roofing shingles through the vast inventory of home repair supplies on eBay.
