Your Home Is Where Our Heart Is


A roof can be more than important protection for your home: it can also be an element of beauty that adds curb appeal and home value. One way to maximize the value of your roof is to select a shingle that provides extra dimension and color.  Known as architectural shingles, they are some of the highest quality roofing materials you can buy.

Other names for architectural shingles are dimensional or laminated shingles.  They comprise two layers, laminated together, in a process that makes them look multi-dimensional. They have a heavy base that is paired with ceramic-coated mineral granules embedded in asphalt.

Because they offer increased thickness, architectural shingles typically have a longer manufacturer warranty and can resist higher wind speeds.

Some of the additional benefits include:

  • Architectural shingles often vary in sizes and shapes on the same roof for increased visual interest.
  • Specialty-designed architectural shingles can offer a rustic, textured appearance that mimics wood shake, and which meet fire-resistance standards and provide enhanced durability.
  • Customers can select architectural shingles that display unique shadow lines to provide the look of natural slate.
  • Architectural shingles in terra cotta shades have the deep clay-like color of tile with none of the hassles regarding extra weight distribution.
