Lifetime Architectural Shingles
At Veritas Roofing, we pride ourselves on installing some of the highest-quality residential roofs in North Texas.
As a certified installers of the industry’s top brands, we not only offer top-quality roofing product, we also provide the peace of mind of knowing they will be installed properly.
Depending on your budget, wants, and needs, we can install a wide variety of shingles on your home, giving you the best roof for your money at multiple price points.
While the answer to the question “What is the best residential shingle?” depends on several factors unique to your budget and situation, two of our top brands include:
High Definition Shingles HD
High Definition shingles are widely considered the industry standard for a quality residential roofing system.
They have earned a reputation as some of the highest quality shingles you can buy.
Manufactured using a proprietary combination of fiberglass and asphalt, these multi-layered shingles are over-engineered in every imaginable way, making the roofs they cover more resistant to a wide variety of weather conditions than most of their competitors.
High Definition features layers of diamond cut granules, with spec-sealed asphalt, and a micro weave layer.
Backed with self-sealing adhesive technology, each shingle can be tightly sealed to the roof, limiting the possibility of a blow off in a storm.
In fact, with the addition of supplemental fasteners, these shingles are capable of resisting winds up to 130 MPH!
As a bonus, HDs are also designed to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your home, with a wide variety of colors and textures available.
High Profile Shingles
Essentially a 2.0 version of HD shingles, the High Profile lines offers all of the great benefits you’d expect from the industry standard, with a few bonuses.
Perhaps the most attractive of these bonuses lies in the added wind-resistance.
In combination with their new and improved Strikezone nailing area (the widest nailing area of any residential shingle available), the High Profile lines allow roofing installers to mechanically fuse the common bond between overlapping shingle layers, forming the strongest bond possible.
This new high-strength bonding technology allows us to build roofing systems with unprecedented wind resistance, unlike anything the industry has ever seen.
As if that wasn’t enough of a reason, these lines are considered some of the most eco-friendly residential shingles you can buy today.
Meeting both the prescriptive solar reflectance and thermal emittance benchmarks outlined in Title 24 of the California Building Energy Efficiency standards guidelines, High Profile shingles help homeowners stay in compliance with a new build or roof replacement.
Class IV Shingles
A Class IV rated shingle system is the Mercedes Benz of residential shingle options.
These shingles widely considered one of the best options available for a residential roofing system and with good reason.
Owing to their Class IV impact rating shingles are one of the most impact-resistant residential shingles available.
The impact resistance of these shingles is so good that many insurance companies are willing to give homeowners a premium discount for installing them.
Class IV shingle systems also offer the same great 130 MPH wind resistance of their HD counterpart, with an industry-leading Class A fire-resistance rating and Algae Stainguard protection to boot.
Other GAF Products We Install
As a multiple certified installers, we take pride in choosing the highest-quality roofing system components available.
Few realize how many other impressive components this manufacturer offers.
Asking for these products when you’re planning to build or replace your roof not only minimizes the chances of a leak or other problem down the line, it can actually eliminate the need to worry altogether by way of our lifetime warranty.
In short, homeowners who opt to include enough of our suggested products in their roofing system can become eligible for a fully-transferrable lifetime warranty that guarantees repairs in the unlikely case of an issue.
While the list of components offered by us is too long to cover in its entirety here, some of our favorite roofing products include:
Solar Roof & Attic Vents
These motorized vents promote airflow in a house’s attic, helping with cooling the home in the summer, and reducing the chances of damaging moisture buildup year-round.
Not only do these vents help lower electricity bills by providing better energy efficiency, but they can also considerably extend the life of a residential roofing system by limiting premature deterioration caused by excess moisture.
These vents come in several models, including some that can be powered by a small solar panel, eliminating the need to wire into the electrical system of a home.
Some of the more advanced models like the Master Flow® EGV5SMT Gable Mount WiFi Attic Vent and Master Flow® ERV5SMT ‑ Roof Mount WiFi Attic Vent include WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, enabling the homeowner to control them with the GAF app on their smartphone.
With the ability to move up to 1450 cubic feet of air per minute, a single vent can cover an attic up to 2300 sq — Ft. in size.
Cobra® Rigid Vent 3™
Veritas includes Cobra Rigid Vents on every residential roofing system we install.
Like the Master Flow motorized roof vents, this component is designed to exhaust heat and moisture from the attic space of a residential attic.
Sitting on the ridge of a roof where the two planes meet, the Cobra Rigid Vent’s proprietary design maximizes heat and moisture exhausting capabilities without allowing for moisture intrusion when it rains or storms.
Synthetic Roof Deck Protection
Also designed to help keep moisture out, we use Synthetic Roof Deck Protection underlayments in almost every roofing system we install.
While a number of underlayment component options are for sale, we recommend going with one made with polypropylene; to minimize the chances of wind-driven rain intrusion during a storm.
Not only does polypropylene keep moisture out much better than it’s cheaper felt counterparts, but polypropylene underlayments also boast around 600% more tear-resistance and tend to hold up much better over time.
Most roofing systems we install include Polypropylene underlayments as a standard option.
For homeowners looking to move to an underlayment with UV stabilization or better breathability, we also offer Tiger Paw and Deck Armor as optional upgrades.
Regardless of which underlayment you choose, each qualifies for the lifetime limited warranty when installed in a system that includes architectural shingles and select other components.
If you want to learn more about the qualifications for this warranty or have a question about our roofing products that wasn’t answered here, feel free to give us a call anytime.
