Architectural Shingle Roofing Maitland

Brian Sikes Roofing offers architectural shingle roofing in Maitland and throughout Seminole, Orange, and Volusia counties.  Because architectural shingles are thicker than traditional 3-tab or single tab shingles they provide a more durable, layered, and textured roof.  Architectural shingles are of the highest quality and will last as long as 30 years or more, making them worth the investment. They are offered in 2 varieties, dimensional and laminated.  Dimensional architectural shingles are composed of 2 layers of shingles that are bonded together.  Areas of the bottom layer are exposed due to notches that are randomly removed.  This gives the roof a 3-dimensional appearance.  Laminated architectural shingles are also composed of 2 layers and can imitate the appearance of slate or cedar shingles without the expense. When you’re ready to replace your Maitland home’s roof and might be considering architectural shingles, call or contact us to start the discussion.

Are Architectural Shingles More Expensive than Typical Shingles?

Architectural asphalt shingles are more expensive than regular shingles but while the cost may be higher, there are numerous benefits.  For example, architectural asphalt shingles are far sturdier than normal shingles. They also provide a 3 dimensional appearance that is very attractive. Any time you replace your roof it is a significant investment but architectural shingles can provide up to 30 + years of service.

Major Advantages of Architectural Shingles


Architectural shingles are much more durable than typical 3-tab shingles. While 3-tab shingles are composed on only one layer. This layer sits atop either a cloth or fiberglass sheet. Over time, rain and other elements will loosen the granules from the shingles weakening the roof’s defense. Because architectural shingles have more layers, they are far better at enduring the worst possible weather, such as a hurricane. Architectural shingles can withstand 120 mph winds which is far better than a conventional shingle system rated at 80 mph.

Energy Efficient

Your home’s roof does more than just protect your home. It also plays a considerable role in your home’s energy efficiency. Architectural shingles do an excellent job of keeping the cool air in your home and preventing it from leaking outside. In addition, architectural shingles are excellent reflectors. By deflecting UV light away from the home, your home stays cooler and requires less energy to keep it comfortable. The government also offers tax incentives when you install an ENERGY STAR rated roof.

When I called Brian Sikes roofing, Mr. Sikes drove out himself and went on my roof to measure for an estimate. He was one of only two roofers out of several, who actually noticed that our previous roof had shingles mistakenly installed on a low-sloped area that should have been covered with modified bitumen.

In addition, unlike the other roofers I interviewed, his roofing customers don’t pay a dime until everything is completed, passes inspection, and the customer is happy with the work. There’s no upfront deposits or credit card holds required with his honest company. Also, he does not sub-out roofing work. Furthermore, he has three teams, comprised of two new roof teams, and one roof repair team, and the team members have been working with him for several years, so they are guys he knows and trusts.

During my roofing estimate, Mr. Sikes answered all of my questions, including why he prefers one shingle brand over the other for longevity, and he did not rush me or try to be pushy, nor did he try to sell me things I did not need-he did quite the opposite.

Even though he offers his customers metal roof options, when I expressed interest in getting an expensive metal roof, instead of hounding me to sign on the dotted line and leave a deposit, like a surprisingly popular and highly-rated metal roofing company I had called, Mr. Sikes was upfront and honest and actually convinced me NOT to select a metal roof, as he told me 1/3 of my roof had too low of a slope for metal roofing.

I asked a reputable metal roof manufacturer about the slope of my roof, and they agreed that Mr. Sikes is correct, and that the popular metal roofing company I had called previously, would have installed the metal roof against manufacturer recommendations. That just goes to show the difference of a roofing company that cares about their customer’s best interest, versus a roofing company that just focuses on their bottom dollar.

Mr. Sikes was so unlike any of the other roofers who I had interviewed for our roofing job, that I quickly called him to let him know that he won our business, the same day of his estimation presentation. Our re-roofing appointment was scheduled quickly thereafter for early the following month, and an Amazing lady by the name of Saundra, who works in Mr. Sike’s office, patiently helped me with the daunting task of choosing a shingle color, by sending me home with lots of sample boards, as well as some physical location recommendations where I could see installed roof colors-choices in person, in my area. Mr. Sikes also helped me choose a color for the modified bitumen to compliment the shingle color I had chosen.

When I made the special request to have hardie board installed in a water-problem area, and to have a rusted chimney chase cover replaced with one in stainless steel, Mr. Sikes even went out of his way to take care of my special requests, including increasing the size of a roof stack for a bathroom exhaust fan.

Everyone on the Brian Sikes crew was courteous, and they tried their best to be careful around my various plants and flowers growing around my yard.

The only thing I would ask for the crew to do, would be to clean up bottles and trash at the end of each day, rather than just waiting to clean up at the end of the job-which they did very well.

Overall, I would definitely recommend Brian Sikes Roofing to whomever is in need of a new roof or simply a roof repair. They are an excellent company that stands behind their work and puts their customers, first. Their prices were around the middle in the estimates I received, but hiring them was definitely a great choice, as their customer service is top notch. Thank you Brian Sikes Roofing Company for the great customer service your team provided, and for the beautiful, new roof we now have installed!
