Designer Shingles (Set Yourself Apart)
Roofing materials sometimes cover more than 50% of the visible exterior surfaces of a home and the shingle you choose can have a drastic effect on the overall curb appeal. Most homeowners have two roofs in mind: the “dream roof,” that fulfills their desire for a specific look”, and the “practical roof,” that is durable and cost-effecient. If you are looking to add a personal touch without breaking the bank, designer asphalt shingles may provide you the roof you are looking for. From cedar and shakes, to slate and tile, there are a variety of shingles available that are sure to fit any style. Designer shingles installations will cost 25-60% more than a laminate shingle (depending on the shingle you choose) but are a good way to maximize your property’s “visual appeal” and can be exciting, fun, and a smart investment.
