Asphalt Roof Shingle
A DEPENDABLE ROOFING SYSTEM IS KEY TO THE OVERALL HEALTH OF THE STRUCTURE.
Asphalt Roof Shingle Service
As a property owner that cares about the lifespan, energy efficiency, and, and functionality of your roof, you have several roofing options available. Asphalt shingle roofing is one of the most popular roofing types for sloped residential and even commercial buildings in Charleston.
CMS Roofing’s extensive roofing services include the repair, maintenance, and installation of asphalt shingles. Our team specializes in installing three types of shingles, namely:
- Slate look
Curious about at the different types of asphalt shingles, and the benefits that this versatile roofing material has to offer?
The 3-tab style is incredibly popular, especially among owners of residential properties with sloped roofs. A 3-tab shingle is a type of strip shingle that features two cutouts along the lower edge to divide the exposed section of the shingle in three. Each shingle looks like three individual shingles.
This type of asphalt shingle is one of the most cost-effective options available and is available in a wide selection of colors and textures allowing you to opt for a shingle that adds curb appeal, and that fits in with your home’s environment.
CMS Roofing earned the designation of “Master Elite” from GAF, the leading manufacturer of 3-tab shingles in the country.
- Easy to install
- Affordable asphalt shingle
- High-moisture resistance
Architectural asphalt shingles are a premium roofing material sometimes also referred to as dimensional or laminated shingles. Architectural shingles first saw the light of day in the 1970s and have grown in popularity ever since.
Most new construction and roofing projects in Charleston involve the use of this type of shingle as it is available in several colors. Architectural shingles differ from 3-tab shingles in that they feature multiple layers of tabs instead of cuts.
The laminated layers of asphalt give architectural shingles added texture and increase their ability to protect a roof from harsh elements and impact damage.
While this type of asphalt shingle has a higher price tag than 3-tab shingles, that price may come with some savings in the future as they are energy rated and can withstand wind speeds of up to 130 miles per hour. Most brands of 3-tab shingles can only withstand wind speeds of up to 60 miles per hour.
Architectural asphalt shingles with lighter colors can also reflect solar rays, which increases your home’s energy efficiency and lowers your energy costs.
- Aesthetic appeal
- Available in many different styles
- High energy efficiency
- Withstand high wind speeds
Many property owners want to install slate roofing materials, mainly because of their aesthetic appeal and authentic textures. The problem with slate roofing is that it is heavy and requires additional reinforcement to carry the weight which, in turn, increases installation costs. Slate materials are also typically more expensive than most other roofing materials.
Slate-look asphalt shingles solve all of these problems as asphalt shingles look exactly like actual slate roofing materials and offer the same value in terms of curb appeal. However, slate look asphalt is lightweight and doesn’t have the same extensive installation requirements. Additionally, slate-look asphalt shingles have lower costs than actual slate when it comes to installation, procurement, and repairs.
Slate-look asphalt shingles are durable and have excellent thermal properties. Like architectural shingles, they can also withstand wind speeds of up to 130 miles per hour.
- Authentic appearance
- A viable alternative to slate tiles
- High wind resistance
- Affordable option

Thanks to all at CMS for being one of the best companies I have dealt with over 30 years of maintaining rental properties and residences.
Thanks so much for the great work your crew did on our roof last week. We have a “dead valley” in our roof and piled debris and incorrect flashing and tie in from the original builder left us with a looming problem. We knew it would leak eventually, but now the roof is fixed and we have peace of mind.
Excellent job, per normal expectations. Took some time to fully complete, but we are still very happy and satisfied, once again.

I want to thank you and your employees for a job well done. I had called four different companies the day I called you. One company called me back in 4 days, another called back in 7 days and the third never did call back. Your estimator was at my house the next day as promised. When the crew showed up to do the work they were on time as promised.
