Invest In Your Roof With Architectural Shingles
These Shingles Pay OffJulie Kalt, Writer
All roofing shingles are not created equal. In today's market, homeowners have many options to choose from in terms of performance, style, color, and price. While it can be tempting to purchase the least expensive product, remember that you get what you pay for. With roofing shingles, this means investing in shingles made with superior materials engineered to offer greater durability.
Exploring Architectural Shingles
Architectural shingles feature raised areas, giving them a multi-dimensional look. When architectural shingles are installed, the roof surface has an interesting, appealing look of depth and dimension.
Architectural shingles are manufactured by laminating two shingles together. This limited shingle design provides greater shingle durability and strength when compared to conventional 3-tab, or strip, shingles.
An Upgrade That Pays Off
Not only are architectural shingles engineered to be heavier and more protective than standard 3-tab shingles, they also create a more striking and stylish looking roof appearance that stands out from the crowd. The varied texture and dimension of the raised shingle surfaces give the roof an elegant, eye-catching look, adding curb appeal and value to the home.
Architectural shingles are used by builders and designers to add curb appeal to custom and higher end spec homes, model houses, and entire communities, taking advantage of the extensive variety of shapes, styles, and colors available with these attractive shingles. Investing in architectural shingles is a popular and worthwhile choice. They add value and appeal that can set a home apart, while also offering superior protection and durability.
