 Press Releases

  • Have you ever passed by a house and thought to yourself, “that home looks like it came right out of a storybook or fairytale!”? If you ever got excited as a child when you saw a home with a sloped roof reminiscent of a gingerbread house, or one that had a turret or a tower, then you know these historical-style homes are truly special. We are proud to have a special product to protect and honor their unique design, our Cascade™ diamond-shaped Signature Cut shingles.

    We feel the same way about these unique house styles. As Sid Dinwiddie, Technical Services Manager, put it, “In every Captain’s seaport along the California Coast, there are these beautiful, old Victorian homes, and we wanted to create a shingle that honored that style.” But how did we come up with the diamond shape as the solution? To understand, we must go back to the predecessor to Cascade, which is PABCO Precise®.

    Precise had a diamond shape with a line through the middle of the diamond. It was made on the standard laminated shingle line. It was pretty cool looking, but it was difficult to manufacture, and contractors felt it took extra time and care to lay correctly on the roof. Still, Precise had somewhat of a cult following with certain roofers who liked to do something different.

    After we installed our new manufacturing line to produce open-tooth shingles, we were on a mission to create something special, and took inspiration from anywhere we could get it. Rebecca Newman, Plant Manager, remembers “We wanted something with structure. I was in Colorado and saw many homes with the old Dutch Lap and T-Loc shingles, and I liked the structure of that look.” But not exactly that look. Then the Eureka moment: “Can we make a shingle that looks like Precise, but has more structure?” Yes, we could, and Cascade was born.

    We couldn’t just have a great looking shingle. It had to be easy to manufacture, have a no waste process, and be simple for the contractors to install. Rebecca and Sid did such a great job in creating Cascade, they are named on the U.S. design patent awarded for the product.

    We know we achieved our design goals because Cascade is often specified on historic buildings or for roofs in historic neighborhoods. Still, it’s a great choice no matter where you live if you’re after an impactful and unique design. We highly recommend Cascade on steeper pitched roofs for full impact. So now you know the history of Cascade and how it got its iconic structure and style. Share this with your friends so they learn the Cascade story!

  • Architectural shingles, also referred to as laminated or dimensional shingles, are a popular and effective shingle choice for homeowners due to their proven performance and vast array of color options. We would like to introduce you to two of our architectural shingle options: PABCO Prestige® and PABCO Premier®.

    When looking for an upgrade from your traditional 3-tab shingle, choosing PABCO Prestige or PABCO Premier will give you the step-up you’re looking for. The multi-dimensional design and protective features provide the luxury feeling you want in product, while providing a sense of security knowing you’re protected against unpredictable climate conditions.

    PABCO Prestige®

    PABCO Prestige is our heavyweight architectural shingle that comes in 16 gorgeous colors. This asphalt shingle sets the standard for other architectural shingles in the industry and therefore is considered our higher-end selection. PABCO Prestige is a great choice for custom homes, commercial steep slope installations, and demanding environments. 

    PABCO Prestige meets UL790 Class A Fire Resistance Standard and is available with Algae Defender® to protect against black streaks caused by algae for homes in wetter climates. With proper roof maintenance, shingles with Algae Defender can be effective in mitigating moss and lichen growth. PABCO Prestige boasts a limited lifetime warranty for original homeowners, and a 50-year fully transferable warranty for subsequent homeowners (single-family structures).

    PABCO Premier®

    PABCO Premier® is our original architectural shingle and happens to be the most popular asphalt shingle product we manufacture. This product has the features you require for both function and appearance.

    Available in 12 distinctive colors, PABCO Premier also meets the UL790 Class A Fire Resistance Standard, and also has a limited lifetime warranty for original homeowners, and 30-year fullytransferable warranty for subsequent homeowners. PABCO Premier is available with the same Algae Defender® algae resistant system you find in PABCO Prestige. When looking for reliable shingle product, know that when you choose PABCO Premier® you’re in good company.

    What’s the difference?

    While both PABCO Prestige and PABCO Premier are superior architectural shingle products, there are slight differences between the two. PABCO Prestige offers a larger color selection, which ensures that your roof has the perfect color to complement your home and environment. Additionally, PABCO Prestige is considered a heavyweight architectural shingle with a 50-year fully transferable warranty for subsequent homeowners. PABCO Premier stands as a sincere contender with a 30-year fully transferable warranty for subsequent homeowners and fewer colors from which to choose.

    PABCO Prestige and PABCO Premier are both excellent choices, whether you’re designing your dream home, or replacing or upgrading your roof. If you still need help deciding between these two great options, or just want to learn more, let us know! Give us a call or send us a message online.

    We often are asked the question, “Why do PABCO shingles have tapered teeth, instead of flared like most other asphalt shingles?” We love getting these types of questions that have fun stories behind them. So, here is the story that has been passed down through the years that we will share with you.

    The team that designed our first laminated shingle, PABCO Premier®, wanted something that was unique from other options available, but also aesthetically pleasing. They found that other laminated shingles had more square or flared teeth. So, they created a design with tapered teeth that was truly unique from the crowd. The design worked so well that it minimized patterning, which helped achieve the aesthetics they so wanted. In other words, they just nailed it (pun intended!).

    As the team was working through the design, it occurred to them that perhaps the tapered tooth might be less likely to trap debris. Kind of a self-cleaning roof, as Plant Manager Rebecca Newman playfully describes it. Now, there are no scientific studies to back up this theory, but it is a pretty cool story.


    Now you know the story of PABCO and the tapered tooth…sort of our signature cut, so to speak. Share this with your family and friends. Everyone loves a great roofing story, right?! If you want more fun facts or have a more serious inquiry, give us a shout and we will share what we know.
