Atlas Architectural Roofing Shingles: The Top 3 Options

When it comes to roof shingles, an architectural style is a popular choice, and it’s not too hard to see why. These shingles have a beveled appearance that conveys style and sophistication. But whether we’re installing these or another style such as slate or three-tab shingles, our team sources our roofing materials from the industry’s best shingles manufacturer. That manufacturer is Atlas Roofing. With this in mind, 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 whole lot to homeowners (and business owners) 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.

Key Features

  1. Lifetime Limited Warranty
  2. Signature Select Eligibility
  3. Wind Resistant up to 130 miles per hour
  4. Algae-Resistant Materials

Atlas Shingle Color Options: ProLam

Black Shadow, Burnt Sienna, Desert Shake, Hearthstone Gray, Heather, Pewter, Weathered Wood.

Pinnacle Pristine® — The Designer Pick From Atlas Architectural Roofing Shingles

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.

Key Features

  1. Lifetime Limited Warranty
  2. Signature Select Eligibility
  3. 130 mph Wind Resistance
  4. Scotchgard Protector

StormMaster Shake® — The Premium Pick From Atlas Architectural Roofing

Now for the crème de la crème of Atlas architectural roofing shingles: the StormMaster Shake. On top of boasting all the key features of the Pinnacle Pristine line, these roofing shingles take things up another notch. For example, StormMaster Shake has the highest wind resistance rating on the market. To put it simply, if Dorothy’s aunt and uncle would have had their local roofers install these, there wouldn’t have been a movie.

Additionally, Core4 technology means you get thermal stability, extreme weather resistance, modified polymer technology, and superior flexibility and toughness. It’s class 4 impact resistance means you’re almost certainly looking at a discount on your insurance rates if you live in Ohio or Michigan. Regardless, our team of licensed insurance adjusters can help you get the most money possible whenever it comes to a roof repair or roof shingles repair.
