When it comes to architectural roof shingles, we have all the answers and solutions that you could ever need. If you live in Long Island, Nassau County, Suffolk County, the Hamptons, Queens, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Dix Hills or Brookville and are in need of our services, we’ve got you covered. We work with various companies to ensure that all of your various needs and wants, whatever they may be, are always met.

These shingles provide a stunning appearance of a three-dimensional roof that simulates cedar wood shakes. One of our companies, who we partner with, CertainTeed, offers Presidential Shake and Presidential Shake TL architectural roof shingles, for example. These two types are thick, and include various random slots to simulate a real shake. They also simulate the overall design of an imitated slate, which looks something like CertainTeed’s Grand Manor, Carriage House and Symphony Slate shingles, but do not include the extra weight. This allows architectural roof shingles to be installed without the use of additional roof support, like a slate shingle would need.

The colors that are associated with these shingles are made specifically to add to the three-dimensional shape of the roof, as well as a special texture. This accents the steep roof turrets, planes and gable features of each roof a lot better, and give any home that extra beautiful boost that any and all could benefit from. To complement each shingle and highlight the various sections on a roof, there are specific products that we can install for you that offer ridge and hip pieces. CertainTeed offers products that achieve this look, such as the Shadow Ridge, Mountain Ridge and the Shangle Ridge.

For example, GAF has a line of shingles that are designed for architectural roofs, called the GAF Timberline Lifetime Architectural Roofing Shingles. This line includes Timberline Ultra HD, Timberline American Harvest, Timberline HD and Timberline Natural Shadow roofing shingles.

If you are looking for performance and overall value for a natural look of a wood shake, the Natural Shadow shingles are best, while a more genuine wood shake look can be found in the Timberline HD shingles. The Timberline American Harvest roofing shingles can help with additional resale value to your home, while improving the overall look. The Timberline Ultra HD roofing shingles are the best investment you could ever make when it comes to achieving an ultra-dimensional wood shake appearance.

The companies that we are partnered with when it comes to architectural roof shingles provide us with the necessary means, as well as all of the tools that are needed to complete the installation process and the products themselves, to ensure our clients and customers that we complete all of our jobs successfully.
