There are many factors to consider when choosing the right product for your home. We’ve tried to make this a little easier for you by breaking down the various shingle types with pros and cons.
First, decide the style of shingle for your home. Laminated/Architectural shingles are the most commonly used shingle. If your house was built in the past 20 years, it most likely has this style already. They are also commonly referred to as a 30 year shingle.
We have created a handy comparison chart to help you choose the right material for your home.
Next, you’ll want to choose your brand. Our top sellers are Atlas, Tamko and GAF.
We also offer Owens Corning, Malarkey and Certainteed. Before choosing a brand, most of our customers want a price comparison. We created the chart below to help you understand the cost difference per brand and style.
When using the comparison chart above, keep in mind the approximate cost difference mentioned is ONLY for the shingle and does not factor in the cost of additional materials that may be required. Some manufacturer’s require a certain moisture guard or underlayment to be used in order to receive their warranty. This could affect the overall total of your project.
Finally, once you’ve decided on a shingle style and the brand, you’ll want to choose your color. Each manufacturer has their own color line. For added convenience, all of the major manufacturer’s offer a virtual tool that allows you to upload a photo of your home and try on different colors to see what looks best.
We also have samples of each product available in our showroom. We invite you to stop by or give us a call and we would be happy to deliver samples to you.
