If I can replace my asphalt shingles, my house will have its classic looks back. Built a few years before I was born, our house was custom designed by my parents. My father was an architect and he oversaw ever phase of its construction. Our house is a classic two-story with a spacious attic we use as a great room. The exterior is wood siding and brick veneers, with an extra large veranda and “old world” asphalt shingles for the roofing. The current shingles have lasted for about twenty five years. A mild windstorm last autumn may have been the last stand for these old shingles. Some of the shingles have curled while others appear slightly removed from their original positions. There is no doubt that I will need to get a contractor out to look at it. I need to make sure it is the right contractor because the old world shingles are very expensive. I want someone with lots of experience. Obviously the old shingles did their job, and the new technology built into the latest generation of shingles should give me 30 to 50 years guarantee.
Finding the right roofing type of asphalt shingles
I had thought to call around for bids from roofing contractors, but I decided to get references from the manufacturer. It only makes sense that they will only certify the most competent and trustworthy roofing companies. I decided to go with the Berkshire® Collection shingles by Corning. These are asphalt shingles with a thickness, proportion and color selection that is similar in appearance to natural slate. These shingles make a unique, elegant statement that restores the original and classic look of our house. The Berkshire Collection proves to be as solid as it looks. This product comes with a Limited Lifetime Warranty (for as long as you own your home) and the particular style I plan to install is rated at 130 MPH wind resistance. They are so confident in its performance that they offer a wind resistance warranty. In addition, Corning offers an Algae Resistance Limited Warranty. They are generally installed as a complete roofing system that is specially designed to be resistant to ice damage. The specialty roofing shingles mimicry the “old world” styles. Impact resistance and solar reflectivity, extend their life and at the same time, lower our energy costs.
