Shingle Roofing Systems

A high-performance roof takes more than just shingles. The performance of any roof depends on an entire system of accessory products working and performing together, including ventilation, hip and ridge shingles, underlayment, and attic insulation.

Roofing manufacturers will not warrant their products unless they are applied as part of a complete roof system.


Felt paper is applied directly to your roof decking, for optimal moisture protection.


We only install the top lines from the top brand name shingle companies.


It is important to have proper ventilation to remove excessive heat and moisture from your attic, that can raise your energy bill and will compromise the longevity of your shingles.


This is the final seal on your roof that protects it at the ridge and hips; also to give it that final high definition appeal.

Working in unison, these elements can provide maximum performance and efficiency. Shingles by themselves may look nice, but without considering the whole package, you could be looking at major roof or attic problems down the road.


When it comes to selecting shingles you have a variety of choices in quality, color, style, brand and warranty. We are certified roofing specialists with the major shingle brands, Owens Corning & GAF/ELK. We are also qualified to install Certainteed, Tamko, and Malarkey brand shingles.


Composition shingles have a fiberglass reinforcing mat at the center. This mat is coated with asphalt and mineral fillers. The fillers adhere to the fiberglass and the asphalt surrounds the structure, making it waterproof. Its top surface is embedded with a layer of ceramic granules. Asphalt Composition shingles offer multi-level protection and are durable, reliable and easy to maintain throughout the life of the roof. They all come with a Class “A” fire rating and have warranties available in 20 yr., 25 yr., 30 yr., 40 yr., 50 yr., and lifetime. They can be separated into three categories: 3-Tab, Laminates/Dimensional and Designer shingles.

3-Tab Shingles 20, 25 Year Manufacturers Warranty

The least expensive option is known as “3-Tab” shingles. This type of roofing has been refined over the years. It appears as a one layer product with a distinct pattern of tabs. This pattern is caused by vertical slots notched into the visible part of each shingle, splitting the lower half of the shingle into three tabs.

Laminates / Dimensional Shingles 30, 40, 50 Year Manufacturers Warranty

Laminates/Dimensional shingles also known as architectural shingles, are created by bonding or laminating two asphalt shingles together (doubling the material thickness), giving them a distinct three-dimensional appearance similar to that of wood shakes. They are a more recent variant and superior to the basic 3-Tab. Laminates have become the common choice in composition roofing, are considered more attractive, are heavier in weight, and have longer life spans.

Designer Shingles 50 Year, Lifetime Manufactures Warranty

Most shingle manufacturers produce a line of designer shingles that offer the homeowner a variety of more sophisticated and unique design options. Typically, designer shingles are heavy weight, multi-layer laminates that provide deeper shadow lines, richer texture, and are physically larger than standard Laminates. Some are also made to simulate more expensive roofing materials like slate.
