When choosing the type of shingles you want for your roof at the Lake of the Ozarks, there are many factors that come into play. Depending on the climate in the area where you live, some shingles would be better than others.  If you live in areas prone to hurricanes, tornadoes or other dangerous storms, different shingles will work better than others.  The National Storm Damage Center provides great information on the different ways shingles can be damaged by storms.

3-Tab Shingles
