We have been in the roofing business long enough to distinguish between reliable materials and cheap imitations, so we only work with reputable brands.
Crown Exteriors is proud to be certified with IKO. IKO shingles feature high-quality, advanced weather protection technology that can withstand extreme temperatures, wind, hail, and other harsh conditions. They also come in various stylish colors and designs to fit any home or commercial building. Additionally, they offer excellent resistance to U/V rays, help your roof stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, and improve energy efficiency. And, thanks to their fiberglass construction, they provide long-lasting protection for your building.
We also use the brand Owen’s Corning. Their TruPROtection technology helps keep your home safe from strong winds and other hazards, and their SureNail technology makes installation fast and easy.
Finally, we can build a roof with CertainTeed shingles. These feature a patented MaxDef technology that provides enhanced definition between various colors and a Stran-Tech formulation that allows them to withstand even the most extreme weather conditions. They are resistant to algae, mildew, and other environmental elements, providing added protection for your home.
The Benefits of Asphalt Shingles
There are reasons why asphalt shingles are so common—they come with many advantages.
Some of the benefits of asphalt shingles include the following:
- Easy Installation: They are easy to install, even for DIYers with limited roofing experience.
- Aesthetically Pleasing: They come in various colors, styles, textures, and shapes that can enhance the look of any property.
- Low Maintenance Costs: Unlike other materials like wood or slate, which require regular maintenance, asphalt only requires occasional inspections every few years to ensure all is sound.
- Fireproof Material: Asphalt shingles are made from fire-resistant material that prevents fire damage caused by heat sources such as lightning strikes or sparks blown off chimneys.
- Not Vulnerable to Insect Infestation: Unlike cedar shakes or wooden siding, asphalt will not be subject to insect infestations such as termites that could cause severe structural damage if left unchecked over time.
- Affordable Replacement Options Available: Roofs made from asphalt are reasonably easy to repair, and replacement costs are generally much lower than other materials.
- Energy Efficient: Asphalt shingles help insulate the home from extreme temperatures, reducing energy costs and keeping your home comfortable all year round.
Types of Asphalt Shingles We Offer
Once you have decided on a roof made of asphalt shingles, the next step is to determine what kind you would like.
There are three types of asphalt shingles, each with its own benefits:
- Three-Tab Shingles: These provide basic protection from the elements, but are not as durable as other shingle materials, such as architectural shingles. The main advantage of three-tab shingles is that they tend to be less expensive than other types of roofing materials, making them an attractive option for those on a budget.
- Architectural Shingles: These provide added durability and improved aesthetic appeal. Architectural shingles have a dimensional design with two layers featuring tabs of different sizes or shapes. They are less susceptible to damage from wind, hail, and other elements. Additionally, they typically offer more insulation than traditional 3-tab shingles, which can help reduce energy costs.
- Luxury Asphalt Shingles: These boast a variety of advantages over traditional asphalt shingles, including superior weather resistance, longer lifespans, and enhanced aesthetics. They typically have a thicker core, which helps to protect against wind-driven rain, hail storms, and other forms of inclement weather. The protective layer also makes them more resistant to fading from UV rays and aging due to exposure to the elements. With proper installation and maintenance, luxury asphalt shingles can last up to 40 years or more. As such, they are an ideal choice for those looking for a long-term roofing solution that will provide lasting protection while enhancing the visual appeal of their home or business.
