Choose the Right Shingles - SAVE 30% off Insurance Premiums | Roofing Improvements


Hi folks. I'm Joe with Moore Construction Company, and I'm here to talk to you today about basic shingle upgrades. If you're in the market for a new roof, a big question is what kind of shingle and if I do what type of upgrade should I choose?

At Moore Construction we are GAF approved. So, today I'm only going to be talking about GAF brand shingles. I am going to start with the basic shingle, which is the three tab. Basically they have two different types. They have the 20 year and a 25 year three tab. The only difference is the warranty and basically the thickness of the shingles themselves.

Now in Texas they don't even really offer the 20 year shingle down here anymore, only in a select few manufacturers. With this shingle you're going to get a 60 mile per hour wind guarantee and basically in a variety of different colors depending on which region you have. Now, if you have this shingle your next upgrade from here you might want to consider would be the architectural shingle. In GAF's case it's called the Timberline Series.

This is the Timberline lifetime HD shingle. There are a few different shingles in the Timberline series. They have the basic natural shadow, the HD and the Ultra HD. One of the big differences is basically the shadow line. Now compared to the three tab you can see it's a total different look. It's got a layered look, an architectural look to it. So, not only are you getting a better look you're getting a better wind rating of 80 mile per hour wind guarantee and basically it's a much heavier shingle.

If you're looking for something that has a little more rich in the color I would recommend going with the HD series. It's got a darker shadow line on it. Now, if you already have this shingle and you want something a little better and would like to upgrade from here your next step would be the GAF Armor Shield II. It looks exactly the same just about. The difference is this is a class four impact resistant shingle. It's basically hail proof in most cases.

Now, this shingle is also a heavier shingle. It's got a rubber like membrane. It gives you 130 mile per hour wind guarantee, but the best part about this shingle is it offers in most cases insurance breaks on your home premiums. I've seen anywhere from 15 up to 30% off your insurance premiums if the shingle is installed correctly. So your return on your investment on here is well worth it because you'll make your money back from saving from the insurance premiums. Those would be your basic shingle upgrades.

If you're looking for something a little more fancy you're going to be looking more in the designer series. My next video I'll go over some designer shingles. If you're in the market for a new roof, check us out on the web at and sign up for a free roof inspection. 

That's it folks. I'll see you next time. Thank you.
