Atlas Architectural Roofing Shingles: The Top 3 Options

When it comes to roof shingles, an architectural style is a popular choice. Moreover, it’s not too hard to see why. These shingles have a beveled appearance that conveys style and sophistication. The team at GPro sources our materials exclusively from the industry’s best shingles manufacturer. That manufacturer is Atlas Roofing. Of course, you have other options too. Slate and three-tab shingles, for example,  bring their own set of benefits. But in this post, I’ve compiled our top 3 choices for Atlas architectural roofing shingles.

ProLam™ — The Value Pick From Atlas Architectural Roofing Shingles

The ProLam™ offers a lot to homeowners while remaining relatively affordable. For example, it is the only “value” model of Atlas roof shingles we use that comes standard with a lifetime limited warranty from the manufacturer. This is the same powerful warranty that comes with the highest-end Atlas Roofing shingles such as the StormMaster series. Moreover, at 130 mph wind resistance, the ProLam is also built to withstand wind speeds more than twice as high as its three-tab equivalent. In other words, these are great architectural shingles for the value.

  1. Lifetime Limited Warranty

These fiberglass shingles provide the strength and warranty protection of the ProLam™. But they also have a little bit better algae protection. Sporting a Scotchgard Protector, these shingles combat the nasty black streaks that can damage a home’s value over time. In addition to that, these shingles qualify as a Holmes Approved Product. Roofing contractors in Columbus, Ohio or wherever else you go will tell you that a Holmes stamp of approval really means something in this industry. But one of the coolest things about the Pinnacle Pristine® model of Atlas architectural roofing shingles is the vast and varied choice of colors. The “Natural Expressions” color line means that there’s truly something stunning for every style of home.

Atlas Roof Shingles: Slate and Three-Tab

When it’s time for a roof repair, your choice of shingles matters as much as your choice of roofers. With plenty of manufacturers on the market, you might be wondering which roof shingles are best, and it’s a good question. Well, as the fourth-generation of roofers in my family, I’ve come to use one manufacturer and one manufacturer alone: Atlas. To put it simply, I only trust Atlas roof shingles when it comes to my customers’ homes. Under the Atlas umbrella, however, you have a lot of options. That’s why, in this post and the next, we’re looking at what each of the different types of Atlas shingles has to offer.

When it comes to Atlas roof shingles, there are three basic styles: “slate,” “three-tab,” and “architectural.” We’ll dive into slate and three-tab here. But choosing your shingle style will depend on a variety of factors including budget, aesthetics, and local weather. Regardless of what you pick, however, me and my team’s experience as roof repair professionals has taught us that Atlas just doesn’t make bad shingles.
