It is important to determine what qualities you are looking for in a roof. Are you looking for one that can enhance your exterior’s appeal? Do you want a roof that will give you peace of mind despite severe weather conditions? Fortunately, you can get the best of both worlds by installing architectural shingles.
Let Kroll Construction discuss the things you should know about this kind of roofing system:
What Are Architectural Shingles?
Architectural shingles are thicker than traditional asphalt and fiberglass shingles. They are designed to look like slate, cedar, clay tile, and other natural materials. Because of this, many roofing companies in Michigan offer these kinds of roofs in a wide selection of colors. They are also known as laminated or dimensional shingles. Architectural shingles have heavy fiberglass and asphalt as their core and are made of two or three laminated layers. They also come in an array of styles. There are synthetic slate shingles made with composite materials molded to look like natural slate. There are also synthetic wood made to look like cedar wood. These features give them dramatic shadowy lines, which in turn give them an elegant look.
What Are the Advantages of Architectural Shingles?
There are architectural shingles that have reflective surfaces that help reduce heat absorbed by your home. They are lightweight, which makes them easy to install and replace. Their strong multi-layer design makes them resistant to strong winds. They are often installed on high-slope roofs, which make them good at shedding snow and rainwater. In addition, they are also resistant to algae, adding up to their durability.
