Here's Why Architectural Shingles Are The Best Investment For Your Home

When it comes to a new roof installation, you have several options of shingles to choose from. Most people are familiar with traditional asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles are durable, economical, simple to install, and fairly simple to fix. However, are you familiar with Architectural Shingles – commonly referred to as laminated or dimensional shingles? Giving them their three-dimensional appearance, Architectural Shingles are constructed from several laminated layers of fiberglass and ceramics with an asphalt coating. In addition to all the great qualities of a traditional asphalt shingle, Architectural Shingles are made with fiberglass, ceramics, and asphalts, offering a wide variety of styling, texture, and colors.

America’s Most Trusted Roofing Brand

Architectural Shingles, like Owens Corning Duration Series, offer a wide range of style and protection for your home. There are several color possibilities available for the Owens Corning Duration Shingles, including a variety of grays, browns, and different earth tones. Additionally, you can choose from these Tru-Definition Duration designer color variations with chic, elegant names:

  • Aged Copper
  • Merlot
  • Pacific Wave
  • Sand Dune
  • Sedona Canyon
  • Storm Cloud
  • Summer Harvest

Owens Corning Tru-Definition Duration Shingles have a more dramatic and distinctive appearance from the use of various granule colors and shadowing techniques. This gives these shingles a layer of depth that makes them genuinely multidimensional in ways that ordinary shingles couldn’t imagine – if shingles had dreams that is!

No matter where you live you, any good roofing company will attest to Owens Corning Tru-Definition Duration Architectural Shingles as the perfect solution for your roofing needs. Do you need hail protection?

Better Longevity

While look and style are definite advantages, one of the biggest benefits comes from durability. The typical warranty for architectural shingles ranges from 25-50 years. They are not prone to crack or break under harsh conditions and can handle more extreme conditions than tradition shingles. Most architectural shingles are able to handle winds up to 120mph, where the traditional shingles can typically handle up to 60MPH.  

Quality vs. Quantity

It is true that this type of roofing is more expensive than traditional shingles by about 20%, but as a homeowner you will see some great benefits. When you install architectural shingles, your home will typically see lower energy costs, appraise for more, and be a more attractive to perspective buyers. Architectural shingles have a longer life expectancy than other roofing options.
