Asphalt Shingles – The Roof That America Loves
Asphalt shingles are the most popular residential roofing choice in the world. According to some estimates over three-quarters of residential roofs in the USA are covered by asphalt shingles. Properly installed asphalt shingles have a great track record of customer satisfaction. While remaining one of the cheapest roofing options for sloped roofs, modern asphalt shingles do not compromise on quality.

The Modern Asphalt Shingles
Traditional shingles offered affordable roofing options but compromised longevity. Unlike those, modern asphalt shingles are a result of decades of scientific research and field study. They are equipped with coatings and design that not only gives you a massive variety to choose from but also promises a long life at affordable prices. Some of the features of these modern shingles are:
Extremely hot summers are no stranger to Texas. With the temperature going as high as 100-degree Fahrenheit in summers a lot of money is spent on air conditioning to maintain an ambient temperature inside your home. Cool roof brings the technological breakthrough of solar reflectivity to your roofing shingles. The products we use have an Energy star rating given by the Environmental Protection Agency. While traditional shingles absorbed the sunlight, increasing the temperature of your roof, cool roof shingles reflect most of the sunlight ensuring that the temperature on your property does not rise significantly. Cool Roofs are a very popular choice for people residing in Texas.
SureNail/ Shadow Cap
SureNail Technology by Owens corning shingles and the Shadow cap method by PABCO ensure that shingles on your roof have an additional patented technology to increase the wind resistance of your roof. While traditional shingles offered a guaranteed resistance against wind speeds of up to 50 mph. The shingles we install with these cutting-edge technologies boast guaranteed wind resistance of up to 110 mph. This installation practice ensures much higher gripping power and a decrease in the probability of damage during storms. This can be a very important factor in a state like Texas which has a high frequency of storms.
The growth of Algae on the roof is a very common problem across Texas. The blue and green streaks running across your roof decrease the curb appeal greatly. It can be disappointing to see these streaks on your roof so soon after spending so much money to get a great-looking roof installed. The high humidity of Texas encourages the breeding of these algae. And the presence of Gloeocaspsa Magma algae in the air makes it impossible for anyone to prevent the interaction between your roof and the algae. The presence of copper and ceramic granules on the top of your shingles prevents such growth. Our products come with an Algae resistance warranty of at least 10 years
While there is no possible way to protect your roof from the elements of nature, you can make your roof more resilient to attacks. The shingles we use have passed numerous tests to ascertain the best quality impact-resistant shingles in the market. These shingles meet the highest standard of impact-resistant specification – UL 2218 – Class 4 Impact resistance. The backs of these shingles are also covered by integrated polymer-based material. This allows our shingles to provide the greatest water resistance in the industry.
This underlayment offers much greater sealant and ventilation capabilities to your home. While the upper layer does not allow any water to seep through, the layer underneath allows the moisture present to escape. This ensures that there is no water vapor trapped inside your roof; this is an essential factor for a long-living roof.
