What are Luxury Shingles?

ANYBODY CAN CALL THEIR SHINGLES "LUXURY"

Generally, building supply companies use “luxury shingles” to describe their premium shingles lines. But unlike phrases like “fire resistant”, there are no regulations defining “luxury.” You have to take luxury asphalt shingle vendors at their word.

CertainTeed has been in the building supplies business for almost 120 years. They have a long track record of providing top-quality materials to discriminating buyers. While CertainTeed offers some mid-market lines like its Landmark shingles, its bread and butter has always been the premium market. CertainTeed is to luxury shingles what Lexus is to luxury cars.

HOW LUXURIOUS ARE LUXURY SHINGLES?

Premium asphalt shingles can evoke the look of natural slate tile or wood shake scales. They add curb appeal to your home. But luxury shingles can be more expensive both for materials and installation.

CertainTeed’s premium shingles have demanding installation requirements. Installers who are only familiar with typical 3-tab shingle installations may not be able to handle the specialized demands.

Because premium roofing shingles are thicker than standard shingles, they’re also heavier. You need to check the roof frame to make sure it can handle the extra weight. Your roofer will also need to strip the old roof off entirely before applying luxury designer shingles. 

If you’re not sure whether or not your older house is suitable for luxury shingles, give us a call. We can give you a free estimate and provide any reframing work you may require to bring your roof to code. 

CertainTeed premium shingles are more expensive than generic shingles, but you get what you pay for. Because CertainTeed’s luxury shingles are heavier, they provide better insulation than lesser shingles against all sorts of weather conditions. This can cut down both your heating and cooling bills. And thicker shingles hold up better against New York hailstorms and squalls. 

CertainTeed designs its shingles as part of a complete system. Only skilled roofing professionals can perform this work to the necessary tolerances. To get the best warranties, your CertainTeed roof must be installed by a CertainTeed certified roofer.

Putting off repairs can be a costly mistake

If you have problems with your roof, you need to get them fixed immediately. Unpatched leaks can lead to extensive water damage. Damaged shingles aren’t just unsightly, they’re a roof breach waiting to happen.  Ugly algae streaks can be signs of drainage issues. 

When County Roofing does a roof repair job, we don’t just resolve the immediate problem. We check for structural issues and hidden damage as well. We give you an honest assessment of what we find, then let you decide on whether a roof replacement is necessary. 

We’ll provide you with all necessary paperwork and make sure all permits are in order. County Roofing has over 35 years of experience dealing with finance agents and municipal officials.

Roof replacement is an enormous project, but we’ll work with you through every step of the way. We’ll explain CertainTeed’s installation instructions for your roof, and show you how we meet those requirements. We handle disposal of the old roof debris, and clean up the site thoroughly before we leave. 

A new roof can increase home value, lower utility bills, and make your humdrum house a head-turner.  If you’re tired of patching holes and you want to give your home the roof it deserves, let County Roofing help.
