When you’re ready for a new roof, it can be hard to know what option will work best for your home. It’s important to choose a style that fits the architectural look of your house and works well for the color scheme you’ve chosen. You should also choose a shingle that fits your household budget and offers a high level of performance year after year.
J&J Roofing in Roseville is proud to offer CertainTeed shingles, a leading brand for residential roofing projects. We’ve put together this helpful guide to choosing the best shingle look for your home, so you can select roofing that suits your style.
Let’s dive in!
CertainTeed Shingle Options
CertainTeed asphalt shingles are available in two main categories: dimensional or luxury.
Dimensional shingles are a very common asphalt shingle option. CertainTeed’s Landmark series is an example of a dimensional shingle – also known as laminate shingles or architectural shingles.
Dimensional shingles are manufactured using at least two layers of asphalt, which are then fused together. This creates a much thicker and more dimensional appearance that can create the dimensional look of natural slate or wood shake.
Luxury shingles are a step above CertainTeed’s dimensional Landmark shingles. Grand Manor and Belmont shingles from CertainTeed are the highest quality of laminated shingles available.
CertainTeed luxury shingles create a stunning, dimensional appearance for your home with unparalleled color and quality!
Other Factors to Consider
Before you get tied to a shingle based on appearance or cost, make sure it’s right for your home by sitting down for an in-depth consultation!
When you choose our expert team, we’ll consider these factors and more to help you make the right decision.
Know the Weight Limits
Every structure has what we call dead load tolerance. This is the amount of weight your house should be able to support, and it can’t support its own weight if the material exceeds the dead load.
The dead load on the average home is roughly 15 pounds per square foot. When you work with a professional roofer, they’ll steer you in the right direction!
Think About the Slope and Pitch of Your Roof
Slope refers to how steep your roof’s angle is, and it’s usually measured using two numbers: the height and length of your roof.
Heavier roof shingle varieties, such as slate or clay tiles, may not be suitable for a roof with a high steep slope.
Consider Durability for Local Weather Conditions
Your experience with the weather conditions in your area is the main factor here. If you’re in our area, you need a shingle material built to withstand Michigan’s wide range of severe weather: high heat, frigid cold, and heavy rain and snow, for starters.
If you’re not sure about the type of shingle that will be suitable for your area, our roofing experts can help you choose a quality roofing material that will serve you for many years!
