- Three-Tab Shingle: This shingle is the most common type of composite shingle. A rectangular-shaped shingle, this type of shingle fits on most homes very well, especially on homes in Orange County and coastal regions of Southern California.
- Cool/Anti-Heat Shingles: These shingles are designed to keep the composite shingles cooler, keeping your overall energy costs down. Very effective in the Indio and Palm Desert areas, where temperatures easily reach over 110 degrees in the summer.
- S-Type Shingles: These interlocking composite shingles mimic many of the clay-tile roofing shingles. These composite shingles however have a longer lifespan and are generally very low maintenance.
- Pan Tile: Pan tile is similar to flat tile, however features a beveled edge allowing for design flexibility. It compliments homes with a Roman or Northern Italian style.
