When you think of a home, there are so many different aspects that make it what it is. The rooms, the walls, the paint colors, the brick, the windows, the fancy door. How often do you think of the roof? At Amstill Roofing, roofs are all we think about.
As one of the most trusted roofing contractors in Houston, we understand how important the roof is to a home and how it protects the rest of the structure (the rooms, the walls, and everything in it). We know that a good roof makes the home. We also know that a beautiful roof gives that home a certain accent, a certain style.
There are plenty of choices of shingles to choose from at Amstill. One of those choices is Architectural Shingles. These shingles help beautify the home and provide a sense of elegance that surpasses the traditional type of shingles.
When homeowners or future homeowners in Houston think of elegant roofing shingles, they are thinking of wood or slate. Architectural shingles are very close to both because they can be made to look exactly like slate shingles or cedar wood shakes, except not nearly as expensive.
WHAT ARE ARCHITECTURAL SHINGLES MADE OF?
Architectural shingles provide a three-dimensional look as they are built thicker and with more dramatic designs. They are made of water-resistant asphalt and are composed of heavy fiberglass mat and ceramic-coated mineral granules.
This thick and strong shingle ensures an even better durability than traditional shingles. Architectural shingles typically provide a warranty of 50 years or more, compared to the warranties of approximately 30 to 50 years for laminate shingles and 20 to 30 years for 3-Tab Shingles.
A BEAUTIFUL AND DURABLE ROOF
We have all heard people say that they are thankful to have a roof over their head. We agree, but it may be a good time to consider how strong that roof actually is. With architectural shingles, the strength of your roof greatly increases, which helps stave off the harmful effects of storm damage.
Along with durability, architectural shingles provide a beauty to your roof that will stand out. If you are interested in obtaining new shingles that look incredible and can match the appearance of wood shakes or slate shingles, then contact us today.
We look forward to discussing how we can install architectural shingles on your roof and giving you the look you’ve always wanted for your home at a price you can afford.
