Specialty Roof Shingles

Ah, enter the realm of specialty shingles. Here you will find many a shingle not often seen on homes or buildings but when they are, you are sure to notice. Specialty shingles make up less than 5% of the total shingle market for one primary reason – cost. Specialty shingles, in general cost more than a common dimensional shingle but there is a payoff. The average specialty shingle carries a 50 year to LIFETIME warranty on the product. For the most part these shingles install just like dimensional asphalt roofing shingles.

Designs: While there are a variety of designs available in specialty shingles many specialty asphalt shingles try to mimic nature. Most either copy the design of contemporary slate or wood shakes, there are however some unique designs by certain manufactures. Below I have samples of many of the specialty shingles on the market today.
