Rapid Roofing wants to share with you the best asphalt shingle roofing brands for Michigan homeowners. This is so important because getting a durable, high-quality set of shingles can greatly reduce your chances of leaks and other roof difficulties.
Michigan’s Best Asphalt Shingle Roofing Brands
This is certainly a big topic for all of our friends in The Great Lake State. When we get winter storms, they do a world of hurt on residential roofs. Anybody who’s had to break up ice dams or icicles can attest to the problem.
Since you should want to do everything possible to abate those troubles, we recommend getting solid roof shingles with good manufacturer warranty coverage. These are some of the most popular shingle roofing brands for homes around Detroit and Ann Arbor.
- Owens Corning
If you get a roof replacement with materials from these companies, you’re bound to get a good product.
Owens Corning is one of the biggest names on the list, specializing in premium fiberglass shingles. CertainTeed handles not only roofs, but also siding, decks, ceilings, railings, and other exterior fixtures. Atlas covers a huge array of architectural varieties. TAMKO does much like the others, with an emphasis on cementing, sealing, and waterproofing.
Now let’s take a look at our pick for the BEST shingle roofing brand.
Our Favorite Brand: GAF Shingles
GAF is not only the biggest shingle maker in the country. They’re also the oldest. They’ve been making reliable shingles since 1886. You usually don’t last that long in business without making a few happy customers along the way.
Their trademark Timberline HDZ series is one of our favorite kinds for a variety of reasons: aesthetics, long lifespan, weather/wind resistance, eco-friendliness, cost-effectiveness, and is available with anti-algae properties. It comes in several vibrant colors that will launch your home’s curb appeal to the upper echelon in your neighborhood.
GAF has its shingles on roughly half of the American homes now. One of its best selling points is its extended warranty options. You can get five different warranty packages, but their best plans give you full lifetime coverage.
On top of great shingles and excellent warranties, GAF even does good charitable activities for military veterans. In fact, we partner with them on a project called Roofs for Troops, which contributes cash to military members looking to buy a new roof.
More About Asphalt Shingles in General
What else should you know about shingles? Well, the big selling point nowadays is that they’re a lot better than they once were (in terms of durability). Plus, they’re still more cost-effective than metal roofing. Especially if you pay for service and manufacturer warranties, there’s no reason your roof can’t last 50 years (with way less noise than a metal roof).
In addition to providing solid defense against leaks and bacterial growth, shingles are fire resistant and upkeep isn’t too difficult. They work splendidly for both residential and commercial purposes.
