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.

“...stands out better than the other ones; I like the color, it is brighter.”

“It looks rich and very durable.”
