Elk Shingles Company Overview

The Elk Warranty:

The warranty for Elk products varies from 30 to 50 years depending upon the product line chosen. A heavier-duty laminated, dimensioned shingle with an Ultramat thicker mat base, Elk shingles offer superior performance and wind resistance. Elk offers a product defect warranty, a wind damage warranty to as high as 110MPH, and 10 years of coverage against shingle stains if the product chosen contains StainGuard and manufacturer’s installation and maintenance instructions are followed. Warranty transfer is available if the new owner submits a transfer notification card as required.

Elk Shingles Ratings


As heavy-duty dimensioned or laminated shingles, Elk shingles are competitively priced with equivalent architectural style shingles and less expensive than high-end slate or metal shingles. They are more expensive than ordinary 25-30 year asphalt shingles.
