In the latest home building trend, shake, slate, and asphalt shingles are offering a lifetime warranty
Many people refer to their homes as the “roof over their head” so its no surprise that roofs are an incredibly important part of a home. Not only does it literally and figuratively top off your home’s style, it also serves as the first line of defense for weather as well as the barrier between your conditioned air (heat in the winter, AC in the summer) and the air outside. Three new trends in roofing take durability and style to a new level: Shake Roofing, Slate Roofing, and asphalt shingles with a lifetime warranty.
Shake Roofing: roofing tiles with an artistic touch
The aptly named Davinci Roofscapes offer a virtually limitless color palette. Davinci Roofscapes involves Bellaforté roofing tiles that are formulated from different shake tones, which creates a natural variance in color. The end result is roofing tiles with a unique color blend that pairs beautifully with the home and its surroundings. Take a look at some of their gorgeous blends:
The VariBlend technique can be used to mix up a color scheme that matches your home perfectly. As an added bonus, these tiles are also available in EcoBlend cool colors, which will reduce the heat absorbed by your roof and keep your heating and cooling costs down as a result.
Durable & Affordable Slate Roofing
Slate roofing isn’t exactly new; this durable material has been used for centuries and stood the test of time, so what’s trendy about it now? The price drop. In the past, the weight of slate roofing made it cost-prohibitive, but GAF now offers TruSlate® Premium Roofing for an affordable price.
The traditional slate roof installation method left half of each slate hidden beneath the slate above it, but GAF has designed a technique that involves installing high-tech waterproofing material in place of the hidden slate. This technique makes it possible to install slate roofing on almost any home’s roof for a much lower price.
These beautiful roofs have a one-of-a-kind look that cannot be replicated by cheap plastic imitations. Slate is also an incredibly durable material that increases your home’s overall value, not too mentions its style.
Lifetime warranty on this home building trend
When you hear “asphalt” you might be thinking of a parking lot, but rest assured, these shingles are much nicer to look at than basic concrete. Camelot Shingles are available in custom color palettes, such as Majestic Navy or Royal Slate. The artisan-crafted shapes and color blends create a beautiful and sophisticated finish. Camelot Shingles offer a lot of flexibility when it comes to roofing styles, allowing homeowners to add a touch of artistry to their roof.
Camelot Shingles have StainGuard® Protection, which protects your roof from unsightly blue-green algae that can form due to weather. The shingles are also equipped with Color Lock™ Ceramic Firing and UV Blocker granules to protect against damage and color fading caused by sunlight.
Perhaps the most impressive selling point for these Camelot shingles is that they come with a lifetime warranty. You won’t have to worry about frequent maintenance or repairs with these tiles, as they are already impervious to rot, mold, and mildew. For extra peace of mind, GAF backs it’s Camelot shingles with “Edge to Edge” protection and a promise to repair any leaks caused by ordinary wear and tear for as long as the original owner of the home lives under the Camelot Shingled roof. How’s that for peace of mind?
