Opal Enterprises - Which Shingles Are Best For Your Home?
When you’re ready to install new roofing on your home, it’s best to take the time to learn as much as you can about the different options available. Manufacturers are always improving the quality, versatility and appearance of roofing options, so take the time to discover the newest styles in order to find the right style and color for you home. At Opal Enterprises, we are proud of every roofing installation we do because we use GAF shingles and other roofing materials that are top quality and energy efficient with excellent warranties. If you aren’t quite sure what color or style of roofing you’re interested in, we’ll be happy to help you choose the best kind of roofing for your house.
Traditional Shingles For Traditional Roofing
Standard, three tab, asphalt shingles remain the most popular style of roofing installation. Shingles are durable and can last for more than ten years, protecting your home against water damage and storms while reducing your energy consumption. Asphalt shingles are popular because they come in a range of colors and are relatively easy to install. While some people may decide to install their Roofing themselves, we recommend using our professional installers because they have all been thoroughly trained by the manufacturers in proper installation techniques.
One of the nicest features of asphalt shingles is the variety of colors and styles available. You’ll find a variety of color palettes that will coordinate nicely with your home’s color. Look for shingles that come in a blend of shades of the same color for added visual appeal. These will give the illusion of increased depth and texture so that your roof has the traditional appeal of a custom Roofing installation. As a successful Roofing company, we install more shingle roofs every year.
Shingles That Mimic Slate
Opal Enterprises also offers designer shingles that mimic the natural beauty and texture of cedar shakes or slate roofing. While you may pay a bit more for these, they are well worth the investment because they give you outstanding value and protection combined with stellar good looks. We can install Roofing that looks like slate on most homes for a fraction of the cost of genuine slate. If your home currently has shingles but you want the look of slate, GAF designer shingles are an excellent choice.
Asphalt Shingles Or Clay Tile?
Many homeowners love the look of old style, European roofing tiles but hate the high cost and high maintenance of clay for their Roofing. Fortunately, we also offer a selection of asphalt shingles that are designed to look like Old World tiles. Since many of today’s homes don’t have the added structural support needed to hold up heavy, clay roofing tiles, shingles that look like clay are an excellent solution that can also save you well over 50% on the price of your roofing installation. These shingles are also more resistant to green algae and other environmental damage than traditional clay.
Opal Enterprises offers complete Roofing services, including repairing or replacing your existing Roofing or completing your Roofing installation on a new home. Our complete line of GAF shingles guarantees your satisfaction while offering you plenty of stylish options that will work with your home’s exterior décor. Our customers will tell you that we’re the best Roofing company available. Give us a call at (630) 355-6557 to learn more about our many Roofing options.
