Architectural Shingles in Baton RougeWe are all pretty familiar shingled roofs.  They are commonplace in the architecture in our part of the country.  They are displayed in magazines and on cartoons.  However there are more options than your common wooden shingle.  Architectural shingles, specifically, have a lot of benefits for our homes here in Baton Rouge.

  • Aesthetics: The sharp, deep look of architectural shingles provide a distinct, customized appearance for your home.

  • Slate Style Asphalt Shingles:  Have the elegance of a slate roof along with the practicality of asphalt

  • Shake Style Shingles: The same rustic look of wood is available with the performance of asphalt.

  • Durability: These shingles deliver greater longevity than the standard 3 tab shingles.  The multiple layers and granules make these shingles heavier and carrier a longer warranty.

  • Overall Cost Effectiveness: While the initial cost of installing an architectural shingle roof can be higher, the savings that can be realized across the lifespan of the roof are tremendous.  With longer warranties and less maintenance, it is actually a less expensive roof to own. 

These are just a few of the differentiators that separate architectural shingles from other roofing options.  Cribbs Incorporated has been helping Baton Rouge homeowners for over 50 years.  For more information, click here.
