CRG's Roofing Material Product Information

Asphalt Fiberglass Blend Shingles

Owens Corning®, Asphalt Fiberglass Blend Shingles

There are many asphalt shingles on the market and I carry many of them including GAF® Timberline®, Elk, Tamko®, CertainTeed, etc. These are all well known manufacturers and good products, but in this roofing class, my favorite is the Owens Corning® Oakridge® Pro Shingle.

It's a great looking shingle available in a wide range of color choices. The Oakridge® line comes with 30, 40, and 50 year warranties and a class A-UL fire rating, the industries highest. This well built architectural style with a fiberglass malt base and very uniform sizing makes for a better finished job and application.

Owens also makes under-layments, ice and water shield, ridge vents, all of which are state-of-the-art and very innovative, comprising a complete roofing system under one warranty. Good thinking!

Owens offers their Berkshire® Collection roofing with an unbelievable lifetime product warranty and claims of 110 mph. wind resistance on these shingles.

To sum it up, this is the best and most complete roofing system available of any asphalt architectural roofing product currently on the market! Call us for up-to-date pricing for your home.

See Owens Corning for more information.

Steel Roofing

We at CRG carry several steel roofing products including Tamko Metalworks & ATAS International, Inc. roofing systems. Metal roofing is becoming very popular for several reasons. First, it is very durable with 50 plus year warranties. Wide design varieties are available such as the familiar standing seam, others that look like slate or shake shingles, and even a Spanish tile style. The large variety of colors and finishes to choose from are very durable and UV stable.

One of the best qualities with using metal roofing is its light weight. So light in fact that even if you have 2 or more layers of old roofing on your home, metal roofing can still be applied over it with no need to strip first. That saves you the expense, not to mention the mess and dumping of heavy old roofing material waste, ...a big plus in my book! Give us a call to see if metal roofing is right for you.

See tamko.com for more information.

Slate or Shake Composite Roofing

Slate or Shake composite roofing shingles by DaVinci Roofscapes

If you want the look of real quarried slate, DaVinci Roofscapes creates an aura of authenticity far beyond that of any other synthetic slate shingle.

"Why?", you ask. I'll tell you a few good points.

  • Multiple-Width Shingles for a non-repeating natural look.
  • Half-Inch Thickness accentuates the dense, fine-grained layering of real slate.
  • Genuine Textures are derived from actual slate samples to replicate slates intrinsic imperfections.
  • Varied Color Blends instead of 4 or 5 different colors like other competing composite slate style roofing on the market.

DaVinci offers 20 color shades and 9 different color blends to pick from like Evergreen Blend, Tudor Blend, or European Blend, etc. You get the picture, and best of all, DaVinci slate shingles are delivered to the construction site in collated bundles to eliminate the need for hand sorting by installers who may not mix the different color shingles properly for the blend.

DaVinci has a wind test rating of 110 mph, more than any other slate composite and a 50 year warranty.

This product beats out all competition in every category and I've used them all. Furthermore, it looks so much better on a house than any other shingle of its kind. As far as real quarried slate roofing goes, DaVinci is less expensive, much lighter and easier to install.

Take time to look at the before, during, and after photos section of my website to see a Simsbury, CT. home built in 1833 transformed by this product.
