Home Roofing: Choosing the Right Shingles for Your House

Duration Shingles Owens Corning Maryland Roof Shingles

Choosing the best shingles for your home may seem like a daunting task – and we get it! It’s easy to get overwhelmed with the amount of resources out there that claim to know what’s best for commercial or residential roofing. However, in order to find the perfect fit for your home, you will have to do some of your own research. While doing so, it’s important to keep in mind the obvious things like budget, availability, and fit. Let us help you start your search in the right direction with the following tips.

1. Choose the Right Contractor

No two roofing contractors are the same. With so many options out there, it is important to find a certified roofing company that works exclusively with the highest quality brands. You should also look for a company that is certified in the product they will be installing. At RoofPRO, we are a CertainTeed certified manufacturer with ShingleMaster credentials and Master Shingle applicator qualifications.

2. Find the Right Brand for You

Today’s shingle options have come a long way from the traditional shingles of the past 50 years. In addition to the standard shingles in traditional colors, you have options that add a designer feel and enhance the aesthetic of your home. Companies like GAF, CertainTeed, and Owens Corning offer a wide variety of colors, styles, and options for even the most complex needs. Make sure to shop around until you find the option that works best for your home and budget.

3. Get the Best Warranty

No two shingles are alike in warranty. This is something you should take seriously during your research. Even though shingles are meant to last 20-30 years, the smartest way to preserve your investment is through a comprehensive warranty. For example, GAF offers a 50-year System Plus warranty for as long as you own your home. We honor and suggest this warranty at RoofPRO. Our team is dedicated to providing service to your roof long after the initial installation.

Other materials brands offer their own warranties, so if GAF isn’t right for your home, make sure to find a supplier that takes warranties seriously. You’ll want to read each warranty and understand it. Some companies even offer extended warranties for an additional cost, but you’re paying for peace of mind. If you’re unsure about where to being, give us a call. We would be happy to walk you through the steps toward determining warranty options.
