    Beautiful, Luxurious, and Heavy - Designer Shingles for Those Who Want the Very Best


      • Beautiful Homes Deserve Beautiful Roofs

        While high end designer shingles are a small segment of the shingle industry, they are the shingles that make your heart pound and make one envious. High end roof products have the ability to take a home into an entirely different class than other homes. If they were more affordable we'd see them more often, but they are like a fine wine or a luxury automoblile. They are uncommon and rare except in prestigious gated communities where they reside along with tile, slate and other high end roofs.

        People searching for high end shingles have a look in mind, a feeling they want their home or mansion to convey. Most designer shingles are specified by architects.

        Durability is rarely a deciding factor in choosing designer shingles, yet designer shingles are the strongest made because of their enormous weight. The heavy shadow lines come from mass. They look more dimensional because they really are. The shadow lines do not come from paint, but from additional layers. They are the real McCoy. Quality will always look like quality.

        Slate look shingles are available today as well as real slate and a hybrid of slate and shingle. The picture above is a combination of Grand Manor (imagine a slate design with an added layer of depth (similar to GAF Camelot) and Carraige House, a slate type design well suited to Victorian homes. The Grand Manor would look good on most home designs from contemporary to a Manor home.

      • GAF TruSlate: A hybrid real stone with asphalt layers, making installation easier
        An expensive roof, TruSlate combines the best of slate and asphalt shingle technology

        How about a slate roof made of the finest slate veneers, rich in color and textures. That is what TruSlate brings to the table. An exceptionally vibrant slate roof that can be installed using normal installation - or relatively normal installation techniques. This is a rare and beautiful roofing material. Real stone has textures and colors that really cannot be replicated. So while this is not technically a shingle roof, I include it because of its amazing beauty and uniqueness.


      • Certainteed's Carraige House design would enhance any Victorian home.
        A designer roof for victorians or other stately mansions or country cottages

        This is a design that is charming. I've seen this pattern on cottages that looked great as well as on Victorians and even a large church with a copper steeple. The illusion of depth is created by using a darker shadow line shingle. In the picture on the left, the shingle pattern is laminated to a black cutout shingle beneath it giving it the look of depth. Gaf makes a version of this shingle named Country Mansion that offers one color reversed that is a darke shingle over a light gray shadow, though the pattern shown is the classic look.

      • Slate look asphalt shingles
        Slate look asphalt designer shingles are available in many styles and price ranges

        Slate look alike shingles are available from many roof material manufacturers and vary widely in price. The cheapest ones are of course the thinnest. The more layers of shingle, increasing the shadows and depth, the more money. You get what you pay for. But that is not to say that someone wanting a slate look shingle need buy the best. It is nice to have options. Storm Master Slate by Atlas is reasonably priced. Country Mansion II , Grand Slate II, and Camelot II, by Gaf represent an intermediate price point.

      • Wood shake luxury shingle designs include Certainteed's Presidential & GAF's Grand Sequoia & Canyon
        Beautiful wood shake design lines without the maintenance and fire hazard problems

        The Presidential shingle by Certainteed reminds me of a staggered wood shake pattern. (a similar pattern is made by GAF in its Grand Sequoia and Grand Canyon lines). I always think of the Presidential first because I believe they were the original designer. It can have quite a rustic look when that is desired, but can look at home on a Tudor. It is a versatile roof shingle that has a very distinct look. I've always loved the look and despised the install process. They are heavy and difficult to install, yet the finished result is beautiful and very durable with deep shadow lines.

      • Like the look castle look?
        This pattern adds an old world charm with its random cut stone look.

        This is a random cut design that mimics the classic look of European stone. Capstone is a GAF brand shingle available in Fossil Grey (shown), Granite, or Moss Rose.
        A shingle pattern like this looks good with brick or stone faced homes and looke very good on steep pitched roofs.

        • This pattern gives a heavy slate shingle look.
          This is a heavyweight shingle with tremendous depth of definition.

          This shingle is a popular choice with architects. This is Grand Manor by Certainteed. It looks great on large homes with steep pitch roofs. It is designed to look like a thick layered slate roof and achieves it by using 5 layers of shingles. The resulting product has heavy natural shadow lines built up by the thickness of the shingle. It weighs in at a massive 425 pounds per square.
