As a homeowner, choosing the right shingles for your home is an important and sometimes stressful decision. We have a long history in the roofing industry creating high quality granules used to manufacture shingles. When you buy shingles that use 3M™ Roofing Granules, you can trust that you’re getting durable shingles that will give your home the curb appeal you desire.
Shingles with smog-reducing granules transforms your roof into a smog-fighting surface.
Black streaks caused by algae are not only unattractive but can harm your home’s resale value. Dew on your roof, along with sunlight and humidity make the perfect environment for algae to grow.
3M™ Copper Roofing Granules are the key ingredient used in shingles featuring Scotchgard Protector that protect against black streaks.
A Roof that Beats the Heat
The solar reflective nature of the granules allow them to reflect sunlight and heat that other shingles would typically absorb.
Urban Heat Island Effect
In some cities, the temperature can be 3 or 4 degrees warmer than the temperature in surrounding rural areas because of pavement and lack of green space. 3M™ Cool Roofing Granules help roofs reflect heat, decreasing the effects of urban heat islands while still being affordable.
3M created the Scotchgard™ Protector Sales Training Program to help contractors understand the science behind shingles featuring Scotchgard™ Protector and how they can prevent black streaks caused by algae.
With the assistance of a trained professional, you don’t have to live with an ugly roof that hurts your home’s curb appeal.
It is 3M’s expertise which allows them to create aesthetically beautiful products that solve problems in an economic and sustainable way. Sustainability in 3M’s granule business means balancing economic, environmental and social factors while addressing manufacturing challenges. And above all else, it means uniting under a common goal: improving every life.
