Slate and wood shake roofs were once a popular choice in roofing materials. However, adding slate to a roof is not always feasible due to the fact that the home was not built to withstand the weight of the slate roof. Wood shake is a great roofing material, but dry rot can occur, much like the wood trim on your home. Shingle manufacturers have solved these problems with high end designer shingles. These are asphalt shingles that have the look of slate or wood shake, without the weight and rot. A popular designer shingle is CertainTeed’s Grand Manor shingle. This is a lifetime shingle that is becoming very popular with customers who want the look of slate, without the cost and weight issues. IKO’s ArmorShake is a take on the popular wood shake shingle, except it is made out of asphalt. This shingle gives you the look of wood shake, and should actually last longer than wood shake in the Memphis climate. Plus, installation is quick and easy.
Advantages of Architectural Shingles
These dimensional asphalt shingles are heavier and more sturdy than 3-tab asphalt shingles because they are made of several layers of material, granules and asphalt. Because of this type of composition and thickness, architectural shingles are more resistant to wind and fire than regular asphalt shingles. They also help save energy costs because of the insulation they offer. Some architectural shingles are also available with Modified SBS asphalt that makes them resistant to hail damage. This is indicated by their Class 4 rating on the package.
Architectural shingles are slightly more expensive than 3-tab asphalt shingles, but they also last longer, have a longer warranty in many cases, and can help reduce the home’s insurance costs. These designer shingles also have a unique look and come in many different colors to enhance your home’s appearance.
3-tab Shingles: Durable and Inexpensive
3-tab shingles were once the main choice for residential roofs. They are a durable covering that offers protection at an affordable price. 3-tab shingles are rapidly being replaced by architectural shingles, especially if there is an insurance claim. At Restoration Roofing, we try our best to upgrade your 3-tab shingles to Architectural shingles at no additional cost to you, should you get your roof to be covered by your insurance carrier. However, if you prefer the look of 3-tab shingles, we will absolutely install the shingle you prefer and offer you the highest quality installation and products on the market!
