Asphalt shingles are some of the most commonly used in America, being a roofing solution that can be affordable, attractive, and easy to install. Take a drive down any residential street in America and odds are it will be asphalt shingles installed on many, if not most, of the homes you see. Asphalt shingles are the gold standard in the roofing industry, both in St Louis and across the nation.

At B King Roofing, we develop a partnership with each of our customers, as to help them find the roofing system that will best serve their needs. Many contractors just want to install a roof on your home and be on their way. Not at B King Roofing. Because who wants any old roof when you can have the roof that is custom to your home and the needs of your family.

While asphalt shingles are one of the most widely-used in residential roofing, not everyone understands why. We do and are happy to explain to you the benefits of asphalt over other roofing systems, and why they might be a good fit for your home.

When most people talk about asphalt shingles, they’re talking about a basic 3-Tab. Of course, this isn’t the only kind of shingle on the market. There is another, premium option and it’s important to understand the differences of each, so you make an informed decision.

3-Tab Shingles

3-tab is usually the most common asphalt shingle. They tend to be the most affordable, while still being offered in a wide variety of colors, so you can cut costs without sacrificing style or performance. On average, 3-tab shingles tend to last between 15 - 20 years with a proper B King installation, with some manufacturers providing a limited 20 to 30 year warranty for additional peace-of-mind.

Dimensional Shingles

Dimensional Shingles, also known as architectural or laminate shingles, are a step above the rest in both appearance and protection. While 3-tab might be your basic black coffee, the staple in any American home, dimensional shingles are a fancy latte with a dusting of cocoa powder. This style of shingle creates the optical illusion of three-dimensions, created by two layers being bonded together, one on top of the other. These layers cast a shadow that give off an eye-popping effect that is sure to turn your neighbor’s heads. While dimensional shingles do tend to be more expensive than their 3-tab cousins, they also offer superior protection. Dimensional shingles frequently come with a limited warranty covering your roof for 30 to 50 years. For a homeowner, that can be enough protection to last a lifetime!

Asphalt shingles are produced by many of our great manufacturing partners, including brands like GAF, Owens Corning, Certain Teed, and more. They are offered in a wide pallet of colors, from natural browns, tans, and greys, to more exotic colors like blue, red, and yellow.

No matter which type or brand of shingle you choose to install on your home, we will install it using 6 nails per shingle for maximum wind velocity, ice and water shield in all valleys and roof-to-sidewall sections, and we promise to use only top grade underlayments. Your home is entirely too important for you to take a chance with just any here-today, gone-tomorrow contractor. It deserves the attention of an industry expert like the shingle roofing contractors at B King Roofing, located right here in St Louis.

Shingle roofing is a gold standard in the roofing industry in St Louis. B King provides the best in shingle roofing service.

  • Bob King is an honest, friendly person, easy to deal with. He gave me a good price on my roofing job and his work was done to perfection. My insurance company stated the roof was beautiful, the best in the neighborhood, and should last for twenty or thirty years.

  • B King has done a wonderful job on my flat roof. King is the only one to come through. The job was clean and neat with no problems. B King is at the top of the list I recommend him highly.

  • B King Roofing was recommended to me by a trusted friend in the construction/renovation business to repair/replace a flat roof on a 4 family building we own. He responded to our contact in a timely manner, inspected the current roof, provided me with photographs, provided an up-front detailed quote, and scheduled the work. He finished the work in the time that he promised and provided us with more pictures of the process and the new roof. We were very pleased with our dealings with this company and would recommend them.

  • We ran across BKing when we were in dire need of a roof. He came out, very nice, and explained things fully. We put money down and within a day or so the material was brought in. On the first non-rainy day a dumpster came by and he started to work. He was on time and worked for about eleven hours each day, as daylight provided. He was thorough, he took pictures. The roof looks beautiful like no others in the neighborhood. It's guaranteed longer than I expect to live. Most importantly is that it turns out our roof was causing water to find its way down to the basement. That stopped immediately. This guy is great!
