We offer the highest quality products and roofing technology to home owners in Canton, MI
NorthGate Construction is proud to offer a wide range of high-quality laminate shingles and modern roofing styles to our customers. Laminate shingles, also known as laminated architectural shingles, are a type of asphalt shingle with a thicker base mat and more material layers of fiberglass and refined asphalt than traditional shingles. Laminate shingles are available in more shapes and sizes and allow for a wider variety of aesthetically pleasing designs.
Because of their unique construction, laminate shingles are much more durable than traditional shingles. Their multi-layer structure results in a heavier shingle and provides the protection you would get from using multiple conventional 3-tab shingles. Laminate shingles are far less susceptible to storm, wind, and hail damage, consistently outlasting their traditional counterparts. Wind ratings on 3-tab shingles fall around 60 mph, while the construction of laminate shingles can withstand gusts of between 80 and 120 mph. They are resistant to fading and algae and mold build-up and will retain their original look for many years. Warranties for architectural shingles are much longer as well, ranging from 30 to 50 years. Many manufactures even offer lifetime warranties on their products. If you are looking to protect your home for years to come, contact us today to discuss how we can help get you a durable roofing solution that will improve your home's beauty.
Laminate shingles are an excellent alternative to more expensive roofing materials and provide similar visual appeal. Slate and cedar shingles are commonly used to add a unique personality to a home, but these materials are costly and do not offer the same durability. Many roof designs using laminate shingles closely mimic the look of slate and cedar while providing extra protection at a reduced cost. Their raised dimensions offer a much more dynamic look than traditional 3-tab designs. Shadows and light behave much differently on a laminate shingled roof, creating attractive patterns as the sun moves across the sky.
