Architectural Shingles from Your Flint Roofing Contractor Offer Several Advantages
Since the early days of roofing shingles, there have been many important advancements. Perhaps one of the most important being the development of architectural shingles. Architectural shingles, also referred to as dimensional shingles, are known for their distinct dimensional look. In this post, we will discuss some of the advantages of choosing architectural shingles from your Flint roofing Contractor, Sherriff-Goslin.
They offer a distinct look. While architectural shingles are actually asphalt shingles, their dimensional nature actually makes them look like they could be made of other roofing materials. You may be familiar with older roofs that used to be made with wood shakes. You can achieve that unique look while also benefiting from the durability, safety, and performance of asphalt shingles, if you choose architectural shingles from your Flint roofing contractor, Sherriff-Goslin!
They are durable and long lasting. As mentioned above, architectural shingles are durable (and not just when compared to wood shakes). Because architectural shingles are constructed differently that the traditional 3-tab asphalt shingles, they have a longer lifespan. This is because traditional 3-tab roofing shingles are typically manufactured with only one later of material on top of a glass mat. Whereas, architectural shingles are made with multiple layers of granules, material, and asphalt. These added layers increase durable and performance resulting in a roof that lasts longer.
They offer some cost advantages. While architectural shingles are generally more expensive than traditional 3-tab shingles, when you consider the fact that they have a longer warranty, stay looking new longer, and are more durable and long-lasting, they are likely to result in financial savings over time.
