What Brand Shingle is Best for Your Roof Replacement?

shingle colorsWe get this question all the time. It’s often followed by, why do you sell multiple brands? The best shingle is one that you love, that is installed correctly and that looks great on your home. That’s why we only use materials that we have manufacturer training for when it comes to a roof replacement.

Many Brands = Many Styles

We offer the leading brands of roof replacement shingles because homes are different and people have different taste when it comes to how they’d like their home to look. Within the different brands, there are many different styles of shingles. Some include:

  • Three-Tab Shingles – You likely have 3-tab shingles on your home now. They do the job but aren’t the most visually appealing and don’t have the longest expected life.
  • Architectural Shingles – They’re also known as dimensional shingles because they look more dimensional than 3-tab shingles.
  • Designer Shingles – Designer shingles re technically architectural shingles, however, they have significantly different appearances. Some look like cedar shake or slate, others have scalloped appearance.
  • Cool Roofing – Cool roofing shingles are highly reflective to reduce solar absorption. Most cool roof shingles are architectural shingles with reflective granules that save on your cooling costs.

Color Options Too

Although most manufacturers offer similar tans, greys and blacks, different manufacturers offer different color options. One of the biggest differences can be found in the color blend shingles. When you look at these three different brands, you can find dozens of color options, one of which will be perfect for your roof replacement. Keep in mind that not all shingle styles come in all color options.
