MOST POPULAR shingle style.
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).
HIGHEST PERFORMING architectural shingle. Slightly thicker than our Vista® shingle. Class 4 impact rating (highest rating possible), and granules that help reduce algae streaks.
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.
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.
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.
MOST ECONOMICAL shingle. Class 4 impact rating (highest impact rating possible), with minimal roof dimension, and granules that help reduce algae streaks.
