Asphalt shingles top the list of popular roofing materials in the United States. Besides being affordable, they are favored for a relatively long life that can range from 20 to 50 years depending on type of shingle, slope of roof, location and local weather conditions. As a SELECT ShingleMasterTM Roofer we are in the top 1% of our profession and are authorized to offer SureStart PLUS 4-STAR extended warranty protection.
Architectural Shingles are now the predominant roofing shingles installed in North America. These products are manufactured as dual layered products (or multi-layered in the case of CertainTeed’s tri-laminate technology) and provide a thicker and richer appearance on the roof (a multi-dimensional look).
Architectural Roofing Shingles also typically are heavier weight than Strip Roofing Shingles and usually have improved warranty protections, which can range from 30-years to Lifetime. CertainTeed’s Landmark® Series roofing shingles are a prototypical design for a Architectural Roofing Shingle.
Luxury Shingles are usually described as laminated shingles that have a differentiated appearance or functionality from traditional Dimensional Roofing Shingles. These products may have designs that mimic “old-world” roofing shingles, like natural slate or natural shake roofing shingles. CertainTeed’s Grand Manor® and Presidential Shake® products are prime examples of Luxury roofing shingles that provide an enhanced aesthetic appeal.
Luxury Roofing Shingles might also have important functional improvements such as Impact Resistance or Solar Reflectivity that can possibly extend the life of the roofing system or provide lower energy costs.
