Owens Corning Berkshire Review
Slate Look Distinctive Roofing: Owens Corning top of the line shingle comes in the form of a slate look product available in only 6 colors for most regions. Due to the longer heavier shingles there are 5 bundles per square(100 square feet) of coverage for this product. This is a flatter looking shingle than a dimensional shingle and quite heavy it lays very well. Certainly for the more seasoned professional installer these shingles install differently than any of the cheaper products in the roofing lineup. They are also very expensive. Not typically seen on standard ranch houses or even two story colonials this product needs a home equally as grand or distinct as it is. Being a laminated shingle this technology is well proven for asphalt based product and as an added bonus you get 15 years of algae resistance.
Berkshire Shingle Price
Get ready these shingles are over double the cost of dimensional shingles and will run you $200-$250 square (100 sq ft)

A great slate looking asphalt roofing product without paying for real slate. Lay flat shingle with quick installation due to fewer shingles per square.
