The top-of-the-line shingles for each manufacturer are referred to as luxury shingles. They are often described as having a “pumpkin tooth” design. Brands like CertainTeed’s Presidential and Presidential TL are among the most popular luxury shingles in the Seattle area. They are especially popular in Eastside neighborhoods that were built 15-20 years ago with cedar shake roofs. Shake roofs are often replaced with luxury shingles because they are the closest to the cedar shake look of any composition roofing material. Also, many HOA regulations in Bellevue, Redmond, Sammamish, Issaquah and Woodinville neighborhoods require such roofing products.
