When selecting the best roofing shingles for your home there are two important options to consider: Your budget and the style of the shingle.
While there are a wide variety of shingle manufacturers, Colony Roofing and Exteriors recommends the GAF brand for a number of excellent reasons: best in the industry warranties, attractive appearance, durability, Class A fire rating, and superior protection. These are a few of the many reasons homeowners made GAF North America’s largest roofing manufacturer!
GAF Timberline Shingles
The GAF Timberline product is an example of architectural (or laminated) shingles. They are sometimes referred to as “shadow line shingles” because the look resembles wood shingles, that is, each row casts a shadow on the row below it. The Timberline Natural Shadow has a woodsy, warm appeal while the patented Timberline “High Definition” gives an enhanced shadow effect which creates a wood shake appearance. The Timberline UltraHD is thicker and its blend of colors and higher definition create a striking and multi-dimensional wood shake look. All Timberline products are warranted to withstand winds up to 110 mph. As a GAF Certified installer, Colony Roofing & Exteriors can offer you an enhanced warranty that increases the wind rating to 130-mph and extends the non-prorated term from ten years to fifty years. To give your home a distinctive, upscale look we also recommend installing GAF Timbertex products, which augment the hip and ridge areas. Look no further – we have a look and style you’ll love!
Royal Sovereign Shingles (3-Tab)
The GAF Royal Sovereign is an excellent example of a quality three-tab roofing shingle. It is the perfect choice for someone who may be on a limited budget but still wants a shingle that will enhance the beauty of their home while protecting it, too. The wind rating is generally 60-65 miles per hour and it carries a limited 25-year transferable manufacturer’s warranty. The GAF Royal Sovereign was selected nationwide as the 3-tab most preferred by homeowners.
For a truly distinguishing look, homeowners will want to consider the GAF Designer Shingles. While considerably more expensive, they are well suited for those who are searching for a style that meets their own particular taste. Do you own a Victorian-style home with steep slopes and plenty of vertical lines? The GAF Country Mansion is the product for you. With the look of hand-crafted slate, it has a wide variety of colors from Pewter to Victorian Red to Moss Green. The Grand Canyon and Grand Sequoia products are designed to give your roof that rugged shake look – think Colorado ski lodge. This looks great on a home with an abundance of natural wood on its exterior.
