There are no shortage of shingle options to choose from. So what are the shingles we recommend the most in 2021 for Colorado homeowners? Our team has weighed all the factors and came up with our rankings below.
Asphalt shingles make up 70% of roofs in Colorado and is the most common material we install. However, we are also Denver’s experts in metal roofing, stone coated steel, and Davinci synthetic roofscapes.
When it comes to shingles, here are our favorites:
- Owens Corning Duration – our top recommendation is Owens Corning Duration shingles because of their strength and durability. The superior nail strip means these shingles will adhere to your roof deck better than others and stay put under high winds. And Owens Corning shingles retain the protective granules better than other manufacturers which mean more protection for a longer period compared with others. For even more protection, we recommend Owens Corning Duration Flex, Duration Storm, or Woodcrest/Woodmoor
- CertainTeed Landmark – these shingles have a great reputation for longevity, largely because of their heavy weight and thickness. We also love installing CertainTeed Presidential shingles for homeowners looking for an upgrade option.
- Atlas Pinnacle Pristine – Atlas is a new favorite of ours thanks to their strong adherence and protection abilities. Atlas also features Scotchguard protector to help retain the shingle’s color for longer.
- The Rest –we have also had great results with many of the other top shingle manufacturers including GAF, Malarkey, and IKO.
These are our favorites at Sol Vista Roofing, and if you’d like to continue researching we also recommend this ranking list from Roofing Insights.
In recent years, shingle innovations have progressed as manufacturers invest in research and development. This means today’s shingles can withstand Colorado’s hail, wind, and snow all while looking great better than any time in prior generations. And, typically asphalt shingles are one of the most budget-friendly material options for your roof.
