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.
