Royal Sovereign® Shingles - Shingle Features
Choosing The Best-Looking Strip Shingle For Your Home
Some people think all 3-tab shingles look pretty much alike. Not so! At GAF, we’ve gone to great
pains to make Royal Sovereign® Shingles the most beautiful strip shingles you can install.

“...looks clean, looks classier.”
“Looks more natural [than the others] because of the colors.”
“...stands out better than the other ones; I like the color, it is brighter.”
“It looks rich and very durable.”
