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.

Childhood Cancer Awareness

Little Nora Jean’s Fighting Machine

Cancer Awareness delivery truck

The latest edition to the Henry Poor Lumber delivery fleet, “Nora Jean’s Fighting Machine.”

With the recent addition to Henry Poor Lumber’s delivery fleet of a new Freightliner flatbed moffett truck, we wanted to honor a very special person who has shown us all what toughness and resilience look like.

So we christened our new delivery truck “Nora Jean’s Fighting Machine”.

An Extraordinarily Difficult Time

Jim Andrew’s granddaughter, Nora Jean Dane, was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of brain cancer at the age of 3.  Her treatment required extensive brain surgery, chemotherapy and proton radiation treatments that lasted over a year.  From a future that promised little hope to being declared cancer free in 2019, little Nora Jean demonstrated the resilience and heart that got her, and her family, through an extraordinarily difficult time.

Raising Awareness of Childhood Cancer
Nora Jean Cancer Fighting Machine

Little Nora Jean test driving part of the new delivery truck named in her honor.

Did you know that each year, the parents of approximately 15,700 children in the United States will hear the words “your child has cancer”.  This diagnosis can devastate a family.

Because of the personal experience the Henry Poor Lumber and Flooring Express family has been through with Nora Jean, they are committed to raising the awareness of the impact of childhood cancer on the lives of many young people and their families.

 Childhood Cancer Facts
  • 43 children per day are expected to be diagnosed with cancer. That is 1 in every 333 children in the United States.
  • Cancer is the number one cause of death by disease among children.
  • The average cost of a stay in a hospital for a child with cancer is $40,000.
  • Only 4% of the billions of dollars that are annually spent on cancer research and treatments are directed towards treating childhood cancer.
  • Since 1980, fewer than 10 drugs have been developed for use in children with cancer, as compared with the hundreds of drugs that have been created exclusively for adults.
  • More than 95% of childhood cancer survivors will have a significant health-related issue by the time they are 45 years of age. These health-related issues are side-effects of either cancer or more commonly, the result of its treatment.
Morgan Adams Foundation logoJoining the Fight

In honor of little Nora Jean, Henry Poor Lumber will donate 20 cents for every mile the Nora Jean Fighting Machine logs in 2020 to the Morgan Adams Foundation.

The Morgan Adams Foundation funds kids’ cancer research. They raise awareness of, and educate our communities about the need for pediatric and young adult specific cancer treatments.

Working with leading researchers and physicians, the Morgan Adams Foundation funds new and innovative ideas that will improve cancer treatment effectiveness, overall outcomes, survival rates and quality of life while minimizing the devastating side effects current treatments have on children.

To learn more about and how to support this organization go to the Morgan Adams Foundation.
