The most popular roofing shingles are the Marathon and Cambridge styles due to their impressive style and competitive pricing. The Marathon roofing shingles are made to look like slate but don’t attract moss and algae due to a clever inbuilt copper granule. The Marathon roof shingles are available in both standard and Ultra versions – the ultra providing a long 30 year warranty.
The Cambridge shingle is more textured looking a little like wooden shakes. This provides a unique and natural look complementing most styles of home Architecture. This is known as a laminated shingle due to the fact that two layers of bitumen / fibre-glass mat are laminated together in production. The heavier mat provides a longer life, hail resistance and very high wind ratings.
