What shingle is the best?
As a roofing contractor we pay the same price within 10 cents for any Manufacturers shingle of comparable grade. To be clear we pay the same price for a square of OWENS CORNING, CERTAINTEED, GAF, or ATLAS shingles.
Most of all shingle manufacturer’s granuals are made by 3M. So, as they say a shingle is a shingle as long as the warranty is spectacular.
Also, some shingle manufacturers have a color palette in High definition colors that suits the homeowner better. It’s important to allow our color designer to help you find the color of your dreams.
Also, if you have black streaks (fungus growth) on your roof, Atlas has joined with 3M & Scotchgard to provide a 15 year free replacement warranty against streaking by manufacturing a shingle with 35% more copper in its granules. The copper does not allow a medium for fungus to grow. This is the Pinnacle Prestine Lifetime Architectural shingle.
After 22 years in the commercial and residential roofing business, I have not had one warranty claim through a manufacturer for any architectural shingle. The color warranties that are now available for purchase by most manufacturers are free from Atlas. This is a new practice and is changing the shingle industry.
Right now Atlas has the best warranty in the business. We will register your warranty for you with all manufacturers.
