Architectural and Impact Resistant Shingles for Homes in Orlando and Throughout Central Florida
Asphalt shingles offer convenience and solid protection for roofs. Yet their visual appeal often leaves something to be desired. Not only that, but in areas that can suffer inclement weather, like Orlando and Central Florida, the impact rating of asphalt shingles might not be sufficient in the event of storms or hurricanes. Both of these problems can be solved with architectural shingles. They look amazing, and many are Class 4 impact rated —the highest available for residential roofs — so you can have peace of mind when the weather takes a turn for the worse.
Stand Out from the Crowd with Architectural Shingles
Architectural, impact-resistant shingles are usually made from composite materials on a fiberglass backing. This process creates shingles that have more height and thus a more dimensional appearance. The increased depth creates more shadows, which in turn gives architectural shingles a much more dramatic look than traditional asphalt shingles.
The attractiveness of architectural shingles is further increased by the unique colors and patterns available. Manufacturers offer many exciting color combinations to make your home’s roof unique among a sea of black and grey asphalt shingle roofs. This kind of shingle is also available with many more shapes and designs than traditional asphalt shingles. Architectural shingles are also able to imitate other roofing options — like cedar shakes, slate shingles, or tile — without the associated drawbacks.
Many of our architectural shingles are impact-resistant, which means that they are better able to take a beating from wind-flung debris or broken tree limbs while still keeping your home protected. Any homeowners that have been caught in a ferocious thunderstorm or hurricane can appreciate the peace of mind that comes with knowing that their roofs will continue keeping their homes dry even when the weather is nasty.
