Why not upgrade?

We live in a region and environment where there is nothing but the core components to age & weather on a roof. The Texas Gulf Coast has all the essentials such as scorching hot summers, excessive rain, wind from storms/tropical storms/hurricanes, & even hail from time to time. Let's face it the heavier weight shingle is more durable to withstand these conditions. More asphalt in the shingle means a heavier weighted shingle to endure the weather elements which ultimately leads to more longevity out of your roof and better protection on top the hundreds if not thousands of dollars on the inside of home.

Most homeowners get caught after 15 years wondering why and how in the world they already need a new roof. We live a place where these 3-tab composition shingles are becoming obsolete. Largely in part to the wind warranty that they provide. These 25-year warranty 3-tab composition mostly provide only a 65 mph wind warranty. Living here on the Texas Gulf Coast we at Eclipse Roofing, don't feel like that is enough protection from the storms we are use to seeing here. Most homeowners are talked to about there options and put a minimal Architectural shingle that provide at least a 110mph wind warranty. It can also be upgraded with the right manufacturers warranty.

The CertainTeed Corporation has many upgraded shingle options to accommodate any homeowner looking for more longevity out of their roofing project.
