Architectural shingles are a popular choice for many because of their relatively lower cost as compared to shake, slate and tile and their longer life as compared to asphalt shingles. They are attractive and offer a wide variety of styles, and homes that are updated with architectural shingles instantly gain a more appealing appearance. PJ Fitzpatrick has architectural shingles in the styles you want, and our professional roofers will install the perfect architectural roof to update your home.
The Distinctive Look of Architectural Shingles
Architectural shingles have slight variations of size and shape in the shingle tabs that give them a more dimensional look than asphalt. You can choose from a variety of textures, patterns and colors that you can customize to your preference.
With the three-dimensional pattern they afford, you can have a roof that looks like more expensive shake, slate or tile roofs. This unique construction results in a roof that has a distinctive air of quality that enhances your entire home and lends a character and style that appeals to all who see it. Our team at PJ Fitzpatrick has been installing architectural shingles for many years, and we can answer any questions you have about the timeless appeal of these shingles.
The Long Life of Architectural Shingles
Architectural shingles weigh more than asphalt shingles, usually around 50 percent more. This increased weight translates to a higher resistance to wind and fire damage and a longer warranty in most cases. These shingles have a composition of multiple layers of refined asphalt, granules and other types of material that are laminated together. Because of this durable construction and thickness, architectural shingles have a much higher resistance to wind than three-tab asphalt shingles. In some cases, these shingles have the ability to withstand winds of up to 120 miles per hour.
Architectural shingles also have an increased resistance to fire and hail damage. Due to these durable qualities, architectural roofs typically have a warranty with a minimum guarantee of 30 years.
Architectural Shingles Add Value to Your Home
Installing architectural shingles will increase the value of your home. Due to the shingles’ strength, fire resistance and wind resistance, your home will be rated as more valuable. These shingles are also engineered to deflect more light and provide more insulation, which results in less energy costs to heat and cool your home. This increased energy efficiency is another benefit of architectural shingles that raises the value of your home.
