SHINGLE ROOFS 

Strip Shingles 

 Strip Shingles are the original and the most basic of roofing shingles available in the industry. Strip Shingles are denoted by the fact that they are single layered roofing shingles that are generally designed to look like slate. Strip Roofing Shingles have a very flat appearance on the roof line and are typically the lightest weight roofing shingles available in the market. Strip shingles used to be the predominant roofing shingle available and used in the market. Today, however, with significant advances in technology and consumer sophistication, Strip Shingles are used primarily by home builders manufacturing economy priced homes or purchased by homeowners as replacement roofing shingles for homes that already have Strip Shingles on the roof.

Dimensional Shingles aka Architectural Shingles

Dimensional Shingles (or Architectural Laminated Shingles) are now the predominant roofing shingles installed in North America. These products are manufactured as dual layered products (or multi-layered) and provide a thicker and richer appearance on the roof (a multi-dimensional look). 

Premium Shingles aka Laminated Shingles

 Premium Shingles are usually described as laminated shingles that have a differentiated appearance or functionality from traditional Dimensional Roofing Shingles. These products may have designs that mimic “old-world” roofing shingles, like natural slate or natural shake roofing shingles.Premium Roofing Shingles might also have important functional improvements such as Impact Resistance or Solar Reflectivity that can possibly extend the life of the roofing system or provide lower energy costs. 

Long-term durability: How your shingles perform after long-term exposure to the sun 

Wind-driven rain performance: How your shingles will stand up to heavy, driving rains.

Long-term extreme-temperature resistance: How your shingles withstand extreme temperatures ie                                                                                 winter/summer in Colorado and hail in the plains.

The protective nature of paper and fiberglass asphalt shingles primarily comes from the long-chain petroleum hydrocarbons, while wood shingles are protected by natural oils in the cellulose structure. Over time in the hot sun, these oils soften and when rain falls the oils are gradually washed out of the shingles. During rain, more water is channeled along eaves and complex rooflines, and these are subsequently more prone to erosion than other areas.

Eventually the loss of the oils causes asphalt shingle fibers to shrink and wood shingles to rot, exposing the nail heads under the shingles. Once the nail heads are exposed, water running down the roof can seep into the building around the nail shank, resulting in rotting of underlying roof building materials and causing moisture damage to ceilings and paint inside.
