Creating Elegant Roofs With Laminated Shingles

As a prominent part of your home's exterior, your roofing system can greatly influence curb appeal. It can either accentuate your home's style or give it an entirely different look. When aiming for a classy yet affordable design, consider choosing laminated shingles for your next roof replacement.

Creating Elegant Roofs with Laminated Shingles

What Are Laminated Shingles?

Laminated shingles are usually referred to as architectural, composite, or dimensional because of their construction and appearance. Unlike three-tab shingles, they are made from multiple layers of fiberglass to offer greater depth and dimension. Manufacturers then apply mineral granules on top for added texture. Roofers recommend this due to their exclusive appeal minus the high costs. They can emulate the authentic look of wood shake, tile, and slate, giving homeowners a variety of options.

What Are Their Advantages?

The added thickness on laminated shingles equates to better durability since they have more surface area for granules and special coatings. This enables them to resist severe conditions, from wildfires to strong winds. This durability feature is one of the main reasons roofing companies like us highly recommend them for replacement projects. Some manufacturers like GAF offer laminated shingles with higher reflectivity. Their Timberline® Cool Series® shingles can help you save up to 15% on your cooling costs.

Laminated shingles are also easier to install as compared with traditional ones. They are lightweight, so they don't require any structural modifications for support. Furthermore, they don't have cutouts, so they can easily blend in any roof types. Available in an array of colors, profiles, and textures, they can complement any architectural style. They can last up to 50 years with proper installation.

Because of their superior performance and efficiency, manufacturers offer solid warranties ranging from 20 to 50 years. At West Side Roofing, we are among the few roofing contractors who carry the GAF Master Elite™ and CertainTeed SELECT ShingleMaster™ designations. Working with us gives you access to the brands' industry-leading warranties that cover material defects and workmanship errors. This ensures you peace of mind that your roof will perform as expected for years to come.
