By far the most common residential roofing option, asphalt shingles come in dozens of sizes, colours and patterns to protect and enhance your home. Traditional three-tab asphalt shingles come with a 25-year warranty. With two layers of bonded material, laminated architectural shingles offer more durable protection against the elements.
Architectural shingles are even heavier and come with a limited lifetime warranty. Their thickness makes a striking contrast in colour, adding visual appeal to your home’s exterior. These shingles provide the upscale look and protection of slate without the cost. By bonding two layers of heavyweight fiberglass mat, laminate shingles are created that can protect your home in high wind areas. With their limited lifetime warranty, these shingles will keep the roof over your head and off your mind for years to come.
