About DECRA Shingle XD:
While the lower initial cost of heavyweight shingles makes them popular, the need to replace them every 10-12 years nullifies the expense advantage. Regular shingles may be a cost-effective option for short-term, budget-constrained projects such as flipping an older, lower market house for profit. However, DECRA Shingle XD cost makes it an ideal option for the elegant home which is intended to be the sustainable, low-maintenance, centerpiece of the estate for decades.
DECRA shingles feature thick-cut edges to provide the same dimensionality of a heavy architectural shingle. The lightweight characteristic of DECRA shingles mean that the need for a complete tear-off of the existing roof material isn’t necessary in many cases. Protective layers and a unique DECRA interlocking system add shear strength and wind resistance.
