When planning to replace roofing in Chantilly, VA, there are many questions to consider and choices to make. Decisions about style, color, quality and longevity all come into play. Since a new roof is a significant investment, many Roofing & More clients struggle with the choice between standard and premium shingles in particular. They aren’t sure if the benefits of high-quality shingles like GAF Timberline® outweigh the higher upfront costs of general purpose shingles.
There is no one-size-fits-all answer for every homeowner, but in general, better quality shingles provide a generous return on investment and a longer, more attractive lifespan. Benefits include:
- Enhanced curb appeal. Did you know that Timberline architectural shingles are designed to appear extra-dimensional and therefore hide imperfections that develop over time? They come in a wide variety of colors to complement the exterior of your home and fit homeowner’s association specifications. That color holds over time in a way that’s superior to less costly shingles.
- Enhanced safety and durability. Weather can be unpredictable in Northern Virginia. No matter the season, the chance of high winds damaging your roof is there. When expertly installed, Timberline Advanced Protection shingles withstand wind speeds of up to 130 mph.
- Enhanced warranty protection. In contrast to lower quality shingles that come with a 25-30 year limited warranty, Timberline Lifetime shingles include a transferable 50-year, non-prorated warranty. This not only protects your roof in the event of a natural disaster, but also potentially adds great incentive to prospective home buyers and increases resale value.
