30,40 or 50 yr Pabco premier roof???


I'm getting ready to have a Pabco Premier laminated shingle roof put on. The difference I will be paying for a 40 yr and a 30 yr around $600. Is there really that much of a difference if they were side by side. I just cant really see that much of a difference Just by looking at two shingles I was given. I was told when it is spread out over the whole roof, you can really see the thicker definition then. Also what do you think of the 50 yr compared to the 30 and 40? I live in the Pacific Northwest.

I only know what I read about Pabco since they are not sold around here. But, typically there is not much difference from a 30 year version to a 40 year version, but there is a much more significant weight factor built into the 50 year versions and larger granule embeddments surfacing.

Thank you for taking the time to respond. Yea, the 30 and 40 were so similar, I can hardly imagine paying $600. more for the 40 yr. I will go check out the 50 yr.

Thanks,

Never cared much for Pabco to begin with. (GAF/elk) are about the best around here. I can tell you that the only difference between 30 and 40 yr on the likes of Pabco, Landmarks, and a few others is a little bit of color and...you ready...the wrapper. Mic and weight them you will find they are identical. The only difference is the manufacturer is giving you a 40 yr warranty instead of 30 yr (for what that's worth). Generally 50 year are considerably heftier. Elk 40 year are actually heavier and thicker than their 30 yr.

You know... I don't doubt that for a minute. I inspected them so closely and couldn't see a difference at all. I really appreciate you and all the other responders wisdom and advice. I went for the 50 year.
Thanks.

What ed said. 30 yrs are all a very good shingle (provided installed properly) 50 yr are considerably heftier (about 40% in weight approx.) and for asthetics they have much more dimension than the others.

Hello,

I don't know if you have purchased the material yet but you could look at the Malarkey brand of shingles. I live in Alaska and have dealt with both brands. I feel that the Pabco's are not as flexible as the Malarkey, esspecially the Premier and the Advantages lines.

Hello,

I grew up in Virginia and moved to Anchorage in 1998. I have roofed mostly in Southcentral but I have also been to several villagesout in the Northwest area. Never been to the Southeast though. I wouldn't mind going sometime.

I hope you roof project come out well.

Which is the better shingle pabco premier or the malarkey? I live in Montana, we get lots of wind, cold, snow, heat and sun, with hail. Just lost my roof to a hail storm and want to get the best product for the money.
