Elbert Insights: Choosing the Right Shingle

When it comes to residential roof shingles, the options are seemingly endless, and you might think it doesn’t make a difference beyond the price and the color. However, there are a number of factors to consider to make sure you’ve chosen the best shingle for your house’s roof in Noblesville or Evansville. To brush up on some of the industry leading options from GAF, consult this handy guide.

Popular Shingles

The shingles you see on most homes are one of two kinds: three tab shingles which resemble the layout of brick, presenting an orderly appearance and dimensional or archictectural shingles designed to give the appearance of cedar shakes. Whichever you prefer, Elbert Construction and our residential roofing division can provide your home with that roof appearance you’ve been dreaming of.
