What are Architectural Roofing Shingles?
Architectural roofing shingles are known as laminated or dimensional shingles, and are among the highest quality roofing products made.
Architectural roofing shingles provide stunning three-dimensional appearance. Some of the most attractive architectural roofing shingles simulate cedar wood shakes. These shingles are quite thick with random slots similar to real shakes.
Another unique architectural shingle design imitates the look of slate without the weight issues that normally accompany those materials. These do not require any additional roof support as slate would.
These shingles also have multiple colors and textures that better accent steep roof planes, turrets and gables.
We use materials from the top manufacturers in the USA. Some of the brands we use are:
Available in a wide range of shapes and textures, architectural shingles are very adaptable. 7 Summits Roofing installs architectural roofing from GAF, the top manufacturer in the country. We are proud to be a GAF Certified roofing contractor.
7 Summits Roofing also installs many other top brands of architectural roofing shingles – including Tamko, Malarkey, Certainteed, Owens Corning, IKO, and Atlas.
7 Summits Roofing understands that a quality roof is more than just a new roof covering; it is an interdependent system of components. Each component of a roofing system requires careful attention to quality and installation in order to honor the customer’s investment. Each component needs to be installed properly to adhere to manufacturer warranties.
