Architectural Shingles
MOST POPULAR shingle style.

Highlander® NEX®
MOST ECONOMICAL architectural shingle. Class 2 impact rating.

MOST POPULAR architectural shingle. Slightly thicker than our Highlander® NEX® shingle. Class 3 impact rating (second highest rating possible).

Legacy® Scotchgard™
HIGHEST PERFORMING architectural shingle. Slightly thicker than our Vista® shingle. Class 4 impact rating (highest rating possible), and granules that help reduce algae streaks.

Ecoasis® NEX®
MOST SOLAR REFLECTIVE architectural shingle. Built on the same platform as our Highlander® NEX® shingle line. Class 2 impact rating, and complies with California Energy Code (CEC) Title 24, Part 6 Cool Roof Requirements.

Designer Shingles
MOST DIMENSIONAL shingle style.

Designer shingles feature a dual-layer construction formed in a cedar shake pattern. They are larger, heavier, and stronger than architectural shingles for maximum weather performance and heightened roof dimension for enhanced curb appeal.

Windsor® Scotchgard™
HIGHEST PERFORMING shingle overall. Appreciably thicker than our Legacy® architectural shingle line. Class 4 impact rating (highest rating possible), and granules that help reduce algae streaks (our highest algae protection).

3-Tab Shingles: MOST ECONOMICAL shingle style.

3-Tab shingles are the most traditional, and most economical. They consist of a single asphalt layer. As a result, they lay flat, thus lack the roof dimension of architectural and designer shingles, but still offering good roof protection.

Dura-Seal™ AR
MOST ECONOMICAL shingle. Class 4 impact rating (highest impact rating possible), with minimal roof dimension, and granules that help reduce algae streaks.
