Shingles are the most common residential roofing system. This is your "standard" roof for a pitched application. Over the years shingle roof types, colors, and options have grown tremendously. We will be happy to make suggestions about colors, styles, and various other options that may be available. We offer many options that will add to the beauty of your home. We typically recommend Malarkey brand shingles or CertainTeed brand. Both are manufactured in the NW for our area and offer strong warranties. Weight is not as important as it used to be but things like algae and moss inhibitors are. Both of these brands use copper coated granules in the shingles to inhibit algae growth and slow moss. Nothing will stop moss completely but this gives you a nice leg up on your roof maintenance. Both brands offer different styles and profiles, again pick what you like the look of and what fits your budget.
