Important Reasons To Consider High-End Shingles

blog post Important Reasons To Consider High-End Shingles

“You get what you pay for.” We’ve all heard the saying, and it’s most definitely true when it comes to the type of shingle you choose to put on your home or business.

Luxury shingles can make your roof look amazing. Although, their great aesthetics are just the beginning of their wonderfulness. In this article, our expert roofing team here at R.I.G. Roofing will explain the excellent benefits of choosing high-end shingles for your roof.

High-End Shingles Look Better

High-end shingles are fabricated in a way to replicate the appearance of slate, cedar shake and other luxury roofing materials, at a much lower cost. They come available in a wide variety of colors, shapes, and textures. Therefore enabling the shingles to create shadows and replicate the depth of costlier materials. With their sculpted edges and staggered lines, the high-definition appearance of designer shingles will have your roof looking beautiful for decades to come.

Built To Last With Warranties To Prove It

Designer shingles are constructed with high-grade materials. Accordingly, their quality and strength are well-known. Most brands of high-end shingles have a dual or triple layer construction that provides additional protection. In fact, many high-end shingles have a Class A fire rating. They are also are wind-resilient, meaning they can hold up against winds as high as 110 to 130 miles per hour - great for hurricane and thunderstorm-prone areas like Florida. These are not just selling or talking points, these are real facts backed by real warranties! Most luxury shingles come with an extended warranty when compared to basic shingles.

Easier To Maintain

That’s right, luxury shingles are not only gorgeous but they have better warranties and are also easier to maintain! Many high-end shingles have slow-release copper granules that inhibit algae growth. Meaning your roof won’t get those ugly dark streaks you often see on other roofs. It also means you do not have to hire the services of a roof washer or have to get up there and clean it yourself. Therefore there is less foot traffic on your roof and that is always a good way to minimize roof damage.
