Enhance Your Curb Appeal with Architectural Shingles

Wednesday, August 19, 2015

When it’s time to give your home a makeover, think outside of the box. Go beyond paint, trim and foliage and look up. Consider adding architectural shingles to your home. 56% of future home buyers notice the roof first when considering a home for purchase. Areas in Oklahoma such as South Tulsa and Norman are seeing a rise in designer and architectural shingles, adding an extra flair to their home.

Architectural roof shingles are thicker asphalt shingles designed to look like slate, cedar, clay tile, and other composite materials, making architectural roof shingles’ color options nearly limitless. If you’ve been searching for a way to get the upscale look you want without paying the high prices for natural roofing materials, moving from regular asphalt shingles to architectural roofing shingles is the perfect compromise. The expansive color options help to coordinate exterior accents like paint, trim and even landscaping.

Many shingle manufacturers such as Owens Corning, GAF, CertainTeed and DaVinci offer exclusive premium product lines. Take a look at what they have to offer –

Owens Corning True Definition Designer Colors

GAF Lifetime Designer Shingles

CertainTeed Design Center

DaVinci Roofscapes

Adding architectural shingles to your home will provide an authentic appearance of higher end roof materials but with the durability of asphalt and composite shingles as well as contribute to your home’s increase in value.
