Shingles are one of the best types of roofing for a home. Architectural shingles are well made and hold up well to the elements. We always remove the old roof so that we can inspect the deck(See Roof Deck). There are many choices in color available. The ones in the pictures here are a blend with some brown, tan, green, light blues and yellows.
The Architectural shingles also have more dimension than the old 3-tab shingles have. This presents a more dramatic roof. They are heavier also which gives them better wind resistance and offers a longer life.
