On a materials basis...probably less than $10 per square across the board as long as you are comparing similar >


There is more to roofing comparisons that just the shingle so keep that in mind.

In most instances it's dollars as long as you are comparing apples to apples


Timberline Cambridge Heritage

gaf iko tamko



Some contractors buy in volume and can get a little better price depending on who they by from in most instance the price at home depot is real close to what a contractor is buying shingles for


Why? because home depot has huge buying power and the contractor doesn't have the same buying power


Research the Shingles all three are very similar


I like the IKO Cambridge because it's manufactured locally in Kankakee Il, IKO is a financially secure, and about 90% green in their manufactoring of the shingles. The shingle is also made with a thicker fiberglass mat 2lb vs 1.8lb which requires more asphualt to saturate, and the shingle in made on the metric scale so it's larger then the compettitors 10 shingles less per 100 square feet. Means less seems less seems means less possible areas of penitration. Also IKO has joint ventures and funded them with Owen Corning & Tamko to manufactor materials. I have been using IKO for 5 years now and super statified with the product!



Best of Luck with your project
