Home/Posts/News and Events/Architectural Roofing Shingle: The Look of Natural Materials

Among some of the most commonly used roofing materials installed on houses today are asphalt and fiberglass shingles. However, residents needing replacement roofing in Danvers MA are now looking for less costly alternatives that are just as durable and stylish.

The preference is pointing to Architectural Shingles, thicker asphalt shingles that are designed to emulate the look of natural wood, slate, clay tile, and many others. Design wise, this type renders impressive three-dimensional appearance. Plus, its textures and random colors better accent steep turrets, roof planes, and gable features on roofs.

Fabricated to achieve the look and feel of traditional roofing materials, architectural shingles are traditionally composed of ceramic-coated mineral granules and a heavy fiberglass mat base that are firmly embedded to water-resistant asphalt. Recently, reputable manufacturers like CertainTeed® launched ‘Symphony Slate’ – fabricated shingles using synthetic slate.

  • Presidential Shake TL and Presidential Shake shingles that simulate cedar wood shake. These shingles are a bit thick with random slots akin to real shakes.
  • Symphony Slate, Grand Manor, and Carriage House shingles imitates the look of slate without the weight issues normally associated with those materials, so they do not require any additional roof support.
  • Shangle Ridge, Shadow Ridge, and Mountain Ridge are product lines that offer hip and ridge pieces and best highlight a roof’s many sections and complement the shingle.
