Laminate shingles are also known as “laminated architectural” or just “architectural” shingles.
They are a superior type of asphalt shingle, built with a heavier, fiberglass base mat and multiple material layers of a refined type of asphalt.
Laminate shingles, with their fiberglass mats, are more durable than traditional 3-tab asphalt shingles, which have a less-resilient paper mat. They can withstand strong winds and intense weather conditions, extending the life of your roof by as much as 20 years when compared with 3-tab! Laminated shingles typically last 30-35 years with proper maintenance.
These shingles are also aesthetically appealing, giving a ‘dimensional’ look to the roof due to their multiple layers. They can be styled to imitate more expensive types of roofing, such as slate or cedar.

Quiet, Safe & Clean
RRR – Reduce, Re-use, Recycle!
Steel is one of the most recycled products on the planet! More steel is recycled each year than paper, aluminum, plastic and glass combined. Three-fourths of all steel ends up recycled and is the building material of choice for today’s roofing products. By recycling 100% of our metal waste, Honest Roofing and siding recognizes the importance of conservation, energy efficiency and green roof solutions.
Saves You Money!
Excellent Insulation/Energy Efficient
A metal roof reflects and emits the sun’s heat back to the sky instead of transferring it to the building. A steel roof’s insulation efficiency is measured in two ways: solar reflectivity and thermal emission. Metal roofs have a high heat reflectivity which results in less heat being transferred into the building’s structure which can save up to 40% in summer cooling energy costs.
Highly-emissive metal roofs can reduce air temperatures in the attic by as much as 12°F. They reflect the sun’s heat during the day and cool almost immediately at dusk saving air conditioning costs.
In some cases Stone Coated Steel Roofing Systems can reduce heat gain by as much as 45% over conventional asphalt roofing. A Metro® roof is a good example. This manufacturer uses highly-UV-reflective stone granules which are sealed to a tough zinc-aluminum steel substrate. The Metro® system allows air to pass between the deck and the panels. When air convection is combined with the highly reflective Metro® steel and stone roofing, the result is one of the most energy-efficient and eco-friendly roofing systems in the world.
Metal roofs installed with airspace above the roof deck produce exceptional energy savings in winter by providing a thermal barrier to insulate and help reduce ice damming. A properly vented metal roof can reduce heat gain by as much as 45% over conventional asphalt roofing. A Metro® roof is a good example. This manufacturer uses highly-UV-reflective stone granules which are sealed to a tough zinc-aluminum steel substrate. The Metro® system allows air to pass between the deck and the panels. When air convection is combined with the highly reflective Metro® steel and stone roofing, the result is one of the most energy-efficient and eco-friendly roofing systems in the world. Metal roofing systems allow air to move between the steel panel and the underlying deck. Heated air dissipates through the ridgeline while cooler air is drawn through eave vents. Continuous ridge venting creates more venting area and eliminates the need to install unsightly protruding roof vents.
Solar panels are costly to install and maintain, but can be a great investment into the future of your family and your home. When you choose to take on the responsibility of solar panels, there is no room for cutting corners. Protect your solar panel investment with a high-quality metal roof.
A metal roof provides the stability and longevity necessary for solar panel installations
Rooftop solar panels have a life of 20-25 years, so make sure you have a roof that can support them throughout their lifespan. Traditional shingles are one of the worst roofing options for solar panel installations: asphalt roofs typically need to be replaced after 10-15 years, so it’s highly likely you will need to disassemble and later remount the solar panels at your expense in order to replace your roof. Additionally, with traditional shingles the mounting racks will need to pass through the asphalt to anchor in structural pieces like trusses, which entails drilling through the roof and can result in leaks and splitting. Fortunately, standing-seam metal roofs provide sturdy ridges to which solar panel mounting racks can fasten, and certain solar panels can be mounted to metal roofs with an adhesive backing. There are also fastening options for stone-coated metal roofs which preserve the integrity of the structure beneath. Metal roofs often last 50 years or more, allowing you plenty of time to complete two solar panel lifecycles before needing to replace your roof.
