What Brand Shingles do you recommend


Recommended Posts

My home owners insurance is paying for a new roof due to hail damage - which I'm very happy about since the roof is almost 20 years old anyway - yea me! The contractor doing the work says he typically uses GAF brand shingles, but would install whatever brand I want. I don't know if there is any significant difference between brands these days, but figured somone here would have an opinion.

I wouldn't be as concerned with the brand as with the quality point within the brand. Several manufacturers are offering SBS modified shingles in their upper lines. I'd push for one of those.

Yeah,

I was going to suggest the Malarkey Alaskan Shingles but I figured enough folks had already chimed in.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!
