The shingles we use are either GAF, Certainteed or Owens Corning, three of the most respected names in the industry. Below are the colors available in our area.
The Arctice White (GAF), Silver Birch (Certainteed), and Shasta White (Owens Corning) are the shingles that can be used instead of having additional blown-in insulation added to your attic. Any other color would require additional insulation to meet California Title 24 requirements. You can read all about Title 24 here.

Tile prices can vary greatly depending on if your roof is engineered to carry tile, or if you need to use the super lightweight tiles. Other considerations are manufacturer, style, color, shading and highlighting to name a few.
Two of the manufacturers we use for tile are Boral Tile and Eagle Tile. Samples are available, but you can view their complete lines on their websites.
