Alexandria Roofing; Slate Roof to Asphalt Shingles


Renovation and restoration in traditional styles is nothing new to Alexandria roofing contractors and residents. While traditional building materials are beautiful, once they come to the end of their lifespan homeowners face the question of what to replace them with. Traditional building materials can be costly and time-consuming to install and maintain. The good news for homeowners is that there are now many innovative options available for homeowners looking for traditional roofing and siding with the strength and durability of modern materials.

When the Deimlers of Dauphin, PA faced this choice, they turned to CertainTeed® Carriage House™ shingles. They wanted to maintain the Victorian charm of their farmhouse while making many much-needed renovations. The chamfered corners and two full-sized base shingles give Carriage House™ the look of natural slate to complement the Deimlers' home, while the deep shadow lines and oversized exposure give the roof an impressive depth. The Deimlers took their project a step farther—by custom styling a beautiful flower pattern into their shingles using Carriage House™ tabs in Georgian Brick and Heirloom Silver. This pattern is a real show stopper and adds perfectly to the Victorian charm of the farmhouse. To see a picture check out CertainTeed’s roofing article about the Deimlers’ renovations.
