Most of us know what an asphalt shingle roof is. It is an asphalt steep slope residential and commercial roof covering. You see them on most homes and on many commercial buildings. They have always been popular because they are cost effective, perform well, and they last 20 plus years. Because of these reasons they are right now the steep slope roof work horse. In other words, they are driving the market in Hampton Roads and The Outer Banks of North Carolina.
I am talking about architectural or “dimensional” asphalt shingles. The price gap has closed much between them and 3 – tab shingles , which are a lesser product in every way so architectural shingles are really coming on strong. In fact , we don’t do nearly as many 3 – tab shingle roofs as we used to. The architectural shingle looks better, performs better, lasts longer, is heavier, and has a much higher wind warranty.
We prefer CertainTeed Landmark architectural shingles. They have a limited lifetime warranty.See photo. Andrews Roofing is a Certainteed “Select Shingle Master” contactor which is their highest designation. Because we install these shingles as per CertainTeed specifications and building code, they come with a 130 mile per hour wind warranty from CertainTeed!
