With the popularity of architectural roofs, many manufacturers have taken the 3-dimensional shingle concept further, creating unique styles such as rugged, old world and dramatic shingles. There are a variety of terms being used in the industry today to describe these designer collections of architectural shingles, such as:
- High-definition (HD)
Offered in various decorative shapes, colors and cuts, these shingles also may have added layers of granules and asphalt for more definition and unique styles. They can be made to mimic the look of natural slate or cedar shake tiles, without the high cost of the real thing.
From a performance perspective, designer shingles offer all the same benefits of 3D shingles, although some premium shingles include functional improvements, such as impact resistance and solar reflectivity, that may extend the life of your roof and lower energy costs.
Keep in mind the following when considering a premium/designer shingle roof:
- Designer shingles should never be installed on a flat roof, because there is no slope for water to run off.
- If your home is located in a hot climate, choose a light color of shingle to resist heat absorption, UV damage and dried out/brittle shingles.
