Installing a new roof is one of the few ways of dramatically altering the look of your home.
This is because of the availability today of architectural or “designer” shingles. Homeowners are increasingly opting for designer shingles.
Manufacturers like Building Products of Canada (BP) are very much aware of this trend and, in recent years, have introduced new designs and more sophisticated colours. Currently the most fashionable designer shingle is the laminated shingle. One popular example is the Harmony 35 from BP. It uses the same material as fiberglass asphalt shingles but offers a thicker, more substantial look more closely resembling slate or wood shakes. Designer shingles are backed by warranties of 30, 35, 40 and even up to 50 years.
