If you’re looking for some curb appeal, the type of look that makes your house stand out from the rest, a little bit of depth is in order. For just a few hundreds of dollars, you can add dimension to your spectacular new roof with shingles that are cut with peaks and valleys, giving your home an architectural look.
These types of shingles showcase your roof’s texture and design in all its glory without sacrificing performance.
“If you’re looking for some curb appeal, the type of look that makes your house stand out from the rest, a little bit of depth is in order.”
Adding dimension to your roof ensures that your roof will last longer and perform better. Commercial applications use shingle designs to create an appealing architectural look and then perform better than expected.
While these types of shingles do not last as long as shingles with a traditional cut, they are incredibly rugged and provide an appealing look that will make your house look fantastic.
There are several things you’ll need to consider when you’re looking into adding dimensional shingles to a new or existing roof. The first thing is the cost of your roof. If budget is an issue, you may want just to consider a dimensional ridge cap or maybe add some caps on your chimney.
This way, you can save a few hundred dollars (you’ll still get the added value of a dimensional look) and still get that great look.
Once you know that you can afford to add these unique shingles to your house, the next thing you should consider is your gutters and how high they are. If they are just high enough to accommodate the shingles with a traditional cut, installing them will be hassle-free.
Just snap them on, and you’ll have a look that will make your neighbors scratch their heads in admiration.
If, however, you have tall gutters or shallow eaves, then these types of shingles may not work for you.
If you are looking for a traditional shingle with the added benefits of a dimensional look, then look no further than the authentic synthetic slate shingle. The resemblance to its natural counterpart is uncanny, and you will never know the difference. This type of shingle is durable, great looking and affordable whether you’re looking to save some money upfront or just want long term cost savings.
