Many homeowners choose cedar shingles and shakes for their beauty and longevity. Done right, a cedar roof will look beautiful and protect your home for years to come. We offer the advice and guidance you need to understand your options and best practices when repairing or installing a cedar roof. Sadly, many homeowners are too quick to convert their roofs away from the timeless quality of cedar shake. Because their homes were originally built with a lower grade of cedar shake and improperly maintained over the years, they have an bad impression of cedar. However, with a high quality medium or heavy shake, followed up with responsible maintenance methods, a contemporary cedar roof can easily last 30 to even 50 years.
Architectural composition roofing
A type of dimensional laminate shingle, constructed of asphalt materials, composition roofing offers impressive longevity and durability – many manufacturers warranty composition roofing materials for 30 to 40 years. Architectural composition shingles typically have two layers of dimensional fiberglass mat base are have quickly become the most popular shingle type installed over the past 30 years. Our experts help you compare the wide range of available composition roofing materials to ensure your satisfaction for years to come.
Luxury, heavy laminate shingles
Considered the top end of the dimensional laminate shingle market, luxury or heavy laminate shingles are constructed with a heavy fiberglass mat base, ceramic-coated mineral granules, and water-resistant asphalt. In the vernacular, these shingles are often called “Presidential” shingles, based on the popularity of one of the first and still most popular luxury shingles on the market; the Certainteed Presidential shingle. Of course GAF, Owens Corning, Pabco and Malarkey all have their own versions of a similar shingle. Unlike lighter weight architectural composition roofing, luxury or heavy laminate shingles are constructed in two or three layers of a thicker and heavier base. Heavy laminate shingles are available in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Warranties can be either 50 years or even limited lifetime. We help homeowners compare available options to customize the appearance of their roof.
The oldest type of asphalt or composition roofing materials, 3-tab shingles are found on many homes throughout the Portland area. Several manufacturers offer 3-tab shingles in a wide range of colors. Our experts help you compare your options and select the best fit for your roofing goals. With the advent of the thicker, heavier dimension shingles such as architectural composition or luxury shingles, 3-tab shingle are not used as often due to their shorter life span. However, it one desires the classic, uniform look of 3-tab shingles, they might be the right roof for you.
