What shingles are the best?

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016 by Bill Jackson

Roofing contractors all say that the shingle they offer is the best.  I believe if installed correctly almost all shingles will give you a long lasting roof.  This is the opinion of a roofing contractor who has used almost every type of shingle over the past 19 years.

Most roofing companies use certain shingles due to promotions or special discounts with the manufacturer.  Bill Jackson Roofing uses GAF and ATLAS as our 2 brands shingles.  We use these 2 different brands due to they offer great warranties and also don’t change their colors that often.  You might ask why is that important?  If a company changes their colors and you need a repair done due to a limb from a tree damaged your roof wouldn’t you want to know that the color you choose is still available?  Also when it comes to warranty I have personally seen these 2 companies live up to it.  Both of the situations I believed it to be an installation problem but they came through for their customer anyways and that to me is big knowing that my customers will have that kind of backing.  Bill Jackson Roofing also uses these companies to offer a little more variety to our client.

I understand that this blog is a little vague, but I don’t believe their to be a true answer to what shingle is the best.  I think that a good contractor will help you find the style and color to what you are looking for.  We have samples on our site to get you started and our sales staff will have sample board for your to see and feel when we come out to visit you on our appointment.  I have helped several customers like yourself find the right product for your home.  Not only one that will last for a long time but one that you will be proud of and be happy with.
