Choosing the Right Roofing Shingle

GAF Roofing ShinglesHow to Choose the Right Roofing Shingle for Your Home

The best roofing shingles for your home will meet your budget, provide the durability your roof needs, and create the curb appeal you want.
.

Meeting Your Budget

Your roof may be one of the largest investments you make in your home, and with so many types and styles, you can find shingles that fit a range of budgets.

Rugged Enough to Protect Your Home

GAF Roofing Shingles in storm

Your choice in shingles should be designed to help protect your home from the elements.

High Winds …. Shingles with strong adhesive ratings and those that offer a Wind warranty are preferred.

Hail …. Impact-resistant shingles may be a good option if your area is impacted by significant hailstorms.

Sun Exposure … Highly reflective ENERGY STAR®-certified shingles can help reduce temperatures in your attic and keep your house cooler.

Moisture …. Stain resistance shingles work well in regions experiencing high moisture and blue-green algae discoloration.

What’s Your Style?

Asphalt shingles are available in multiple styles for contemporary to historical home designs. These include 3-tab, architectural, and designer shingles. While these types mostly differ in look, some may offer better durability as well.3 styles of shingles

Architectural
Architectural shingles, also known as “dimensional” or “laminate” shingles, offer a richer, multidimensional quality that looks a bit like wood or slate roofing.

Designer
A designer shingle, often called a “premium” or “luxury” shingle, offers higher-end multidimensional designs, premium protection from weathering, and maximum energy efficiency. Designer shingles take on the most realistic look of old-world roofing materials.

3-Tab
A 3-tab shingle is the simplest type of roofing shingle. They are built from a single layer of asphalt, which makes them lie flat right against the roof.

What’s Your Color?

Shingles come in a wide range of colors. Consider a color that complements your house or neighborhood. Neutrals are always safe — and enduring — if you don’t have a preference.

GAF Timberline roofingIs it Time to Replace Your Roof?

If now is the time to replace your existing roof with new shingles, Henry Pool Lumber can help you make the right choice in architectural styles, colors and materials.

3 Easy Steps to Remodel Your Fireplace

Fireplace gas insert
before and after fireplaces

Go from old to new with an easy to install gas fireplace insert.

Do you have an ugly, dated, wood-burning fireplace you’d like to bring back to life? Brass doors from the 80s. Dirty soot and ashes. Messy firewood.  Uninviting. Unused.  If so, it’s time to remodel your fireplace.

Heat & Glo Fireplace Inserts

The simplest and most cost effective way to transform your old brick or manufactured fireplace into an attractive and comfortable space is with a Heat & Glo gas fireplace insert.

Henry Poor Lumber offers Heat & Glo gas fireplace inserts that turn an used wood-burning fireplace into an energy efficient and attractive centerpiece of your room.

A “gas insert” fits inside your wood-burning fireplace opening. It is fed by a copper gas line that brings instant warmth into your home. All with no work and just the touch of a button.

Easy As One, Two, Three

A fireplace makeover is an amazingly easy process that converts your wood-burning fireplace into a beautiful, warm and easy-to-use gas fireplace insert with these three easy steps.

  1. Bring in a photo of your fireplace to Henry Poor Lumber to find out what “gas insert” will work best for you.  Go to the Heat & Glo website to view your options.
  2. Have your gas fireplace insert installed safely by a local contractor.
  3. Sit back and enjoy having a beautiful and efficient fireplace.

This is also the time to update the overall look of your fireplace by installing new stone or brick facing, or painting the older brick to give it a contemporary, refreshed look.
