Asphalt Architectural Shingles
Laminated asphalt shingles are an increasingly popular option for roofing replacements and new homes. You may also hear them called “dimensional” or “architectural” shingles. The added thickness enables manufacturers to offer longer 30-50 year warranties.
Laminated architectural shingles perform well in all weather conditions, are available in a number of colors and patterns, and their raised profile and deep texture compliment most every housing design, and generally represent the best value in roofing materials. Asphalt shingles installed by Berkeshire Exteriors carry a Lifetime Craftsmanship Warranty™.
Cedar shakes are thick and rough in texture, and cedar shingles are tapered and smooth. Both of these wood roofing options produce a wonderful look and curb appeal element.
A shake roof’s irregular pattern and calm earth tone produce a very pleasing, organic effect much different than asphalt shingles.
These days, shakes can be made of cedar, steel, or various synthetic materials. Cedar shake roofing materials installed by Berkeshire Exteriors carry a Lifetime Craftsmanship Warranty™.
A little known but new breed of environmentally friendly roofing products are now in development for residential uses. These shingles are being produced from blends of polymers, sawdust, rubber, vinyl and fiberglass. These blends are quite flexible, so the testing indicates their ability to withstand high winds, hail, foot traffic, and rotting and breaking. Even fire retardants and UV inhibitors are added to these unique blends. Some of these alternative shingles are being manufactured from recycled materials, such as used car tires or post industrial waste, and these new creations may be completely recyclable when their use is done. We are closely monitoring these products, and hope to begin offering them to Minnesota homeowners soon.
