Defective Atlas Chalet Shingles

You may be entitled to a complete roof replacement!

What If I Have Atlas Chalet Shingles?

Atlas Chalet Shingles were created to provide homeowners with a more affordable alternative to true architectural shingles. However, due to frequent cracking, blistering, and other defective issues, they were discontinued and taken off the market.

Since Atlas Shingles are not true architectural shingles, it’s important to know that your home will need a total roof replacement if they become damaged. Even slight weather damage to Atlas Shingles can require a full roof replacement! Therefore, if you have damaged Atlas Chalet Shingles, you’ll need to contact your local roofing contractor as soon as possible. Five Points Roofing Company will happily install your new shingle roof with true architectural shingles to prevent further damage to your Middle Tennessee home.

Atlas Chalet Shingles vs. Architectural Shingles

Atlas Chalet Shingles were designed to mimic the appearance of true architectural shingles at a lower price point. However, if you need to know how to identify Atlas Chalet Shingles, there are some characteristics to look out for, including:

  • Keyways: Atlas Chalet Shingles have keyways, or divisions, between the tabs of each shingle. True architectural shingles do not have keyways.
  • Shadow lines: Atlas Chalet Shingles have dark granules to create a false illusion of shingle layering.
  • Three tabs: Atlas Chalet Shingles have three tabs instead of the correct two tabs that architectural shingles have.

There is no true substitute for architectural shingles. So, if you notice any of these traits on your roof, it’s very possible that you have Atlas Chalet Shingles and will need to schedule a roof inspection.

Filing an Atlas Chalet Shingles Insurance Claim

If you realize that you have Atlas Chalet Shingles, don’t panic! Home insurance companies cover roof replacements if you have an Atlas Chalet Shingle. Also, architectural shingles typically carry a lifetime warranty when installed by certified roofing contractors, like Five Points Roofing Company.

Also, the majority of successful roof replacement insurance claims require little to no out-of-pocket expenses after you reach your deductible!
