Color is Ingrained Into our Max Def Shingles

Landmark PRO shingles in Max Def Espresso, Max Def Coastal Blue, and Max Def Red Oak.

When it comes to roofing shingles, the product color is actually a complex array of colored granules that are combined to create gradient blends on the shingle surface. However, without beautifully colored granules, you can’t get a deep and robust shingle color.  

The journey to a high-quality color starts in the laboratory, where our research and development teams explore hundreds of different pigments and pigment combinations in order to identify the color blends needed to create a shingle color. Compared to standard shingle colors, Max Def colors have a unique and special blend composition that highlights the colors and aesthetics of the shingles. 

Once the colors for the granule blend are identified, the granules are color-coated and added to our shingle surfaces during the manufacturing process using precise instruments that place the granules on the shingles to exacting specifications. The result is a rich shingle surface that creates your ideal roof color.
