We installed this roof a few years ago. It did not last, curling up after only a few years. It is particularly bad on the south side and the entire roof now needs replacing.

Very Happy So Far

Comment:
We had hail damage on our previous roof so our insurance company backed us 100% to have a new roof installed. I find the shingles to be great so far and have not had any problems whatsoever. Reputable, local roofers who rely on word of mouth adversiting from happy customers said that these shingles are the absolute best bang for the buck. There are better shingles out there, however, there are a lot that are much worse. A very good value and a 30 year warranty to back it up. I'm happy.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
