When it’s time to replace your roof, take a look at the architectural shingle product lines available from leading roofing manufacturers like IKO, CertainTeed, Owens Corning, GAF, and Tamko. The extra costs of these premium asphalt shingles can pay big dividends with extended roof life and increased curb appeal.
Although each manufacturer’s product is unique, architectural shingles are usually made up of a heavy fiberglass mat layered with thick, waterproof asphalt and topped by a layer of embedded ceramic-coated mineral granules. This composition allows architectural asphalt shingles to be strong, flexible, and extremely durable. In addition, these shingles can be molded and colored so that they closely resemble organic roofing materials like cedar shakes, slate, and tile.
Architectural shingles, sometimes called dimensional or laminated shingles, can cost 1.5 to 2 times as much as standard asphalt shingles, but that additional cost buys a lot. Consider these advantages:
