Architectural Shingles

Kelly McNeill - Monday, September 21, 2015

What are the most popular shingles for roofing replacement?  By far the most popular shingles being used in and around the Denver area would be Architectural shingles.  The most popular color choices are manufactured by Owens Corning and the GAF Corporation.  These shingles are much heavier than the older 3-tab shingles and have many benefits over the 3-tabs.  There are also different grades of Architectural shingles including impact resistant shingles which can save you money on your homeowners policy.  However, always check with your insurance carrier to see if they will offer you a reduction in your rates with the impact resistant shingle.  We recommend you look at all of your options - there are numerous colors, designs and patterns available to enhance your homes look and value.  Call the Denver Roofing Company to learn about all of your roofing options.  303-720-1934

Some Roofing Tips by The Denver Roofing Company


Shingle roofs should always have a minimum of 5 nails per shingle.


The nails should be driven perpendicular to the roof deck and not angled.


The nails should always be in the shingle's strike zone.


Felt paper should be over the drip edge on eaves and under it on rakes.


Wood plank decking should not have gaps between the boards.


Starter shingles should be installed on all eaves and up rakes.


For ridge venting to ventilate properly you need soffit vents.
