If you are a consumer looking for the best asphalt shingle then you have come to the right place.
This section of our website is intended to break down the features of asphalt laminated shingles that Middle Georgia Roofing recommends for your home in the Southeast region.
The typical factors that are important to a homeowner when choosing a roofing shingle are: price points, true life expectancy, wind ratings, and color selection. These are all extremely important issues, but we consider them surface issues. There are additional areas of a roofing shingle that play into its performance, longevity and price. Some of those factors are: how the shingle is made, is it an AR (algae resistant) rated shingle, the weight
of the material, how wide is the nailing strip, pitch of the roof the product is installed on, what type of warranty does the shingle carry and what type of wind rating does it carry. When you purchase a new roof you want a shingle that is going to be aesthetically appealing on your home but will also perform well in the type of weather your particular city or region experiences. Please call us at (478) 960-8706 with any questions you might have.
GAF roofing shingles has long been a leading roofing material in the industry. What distinguished GAF is the advanced mat technology they released in 2011 which was accompanied by their new 50 year limited lifetime warranties. They ‘broke the sound barrier” so to speak with their new shingle mat and the rest of the industry was forced to follow. GAF remains to be the only roofing manufacturer that has made in any changes to their shingle justifying the stature of the warranty they offer.
CertainTeed is an industry leading brand name among roofing products. They are predominantly recognized for the Landmark Series, the Presidential and Presidential TL series. Most home owners in the Southeast of the U.S. list the Landmark shingles as their first choice. Like GAF, they also offer great upgraded warranties and systems that protect consumers.

Will asphalt shingles stand up to tough weather?
As part of a whole roof system, asphalt shingles and application techniques are tailored to endure extreme weather conditions.
How long do asphalt shingles last?
Asphalt shingles typically last about 30 years.
Do asphalt shingles require a lot of maintenance?
Asphalt shingles are low-maintenance. They do not need to be cleaned, power washed, painted or sealed. Multiple roofs with many elevation changes may require leaves and debris be removed from intersecting valleys. This kind of clutter can obstruct the flow of water to the gutters.
