With old-world charm a current design trend that stands the test of time, roofing and building material company BP Building Products of Canada (BP Canada) has announced the launch of its new line of Manoir laminated shingles, a breakthrough roofing collection that mimics the luxurious look of Europe’s spectacular castles.

Billed as the crown jewel of BP Canada’s shingle collection that is inspired by history but built for the future, Manoir premium asphalt shingles are not only striking in design, blanketing roofs with sophisticated natural stone and slate finishes, but also formulated to last longer and handle the roughest weather.

Featuring BP Canada’s unique Weather-Tite® PLUS Technology, an improved version of the company’s patented wind resistance technology, the shingles come with a standard wind warranty of 135 mph, equivalent to a category 4 hurricane, thanks to their two high performance sealant bands. The Weather-Tite Band protects from wind-driven rain, while the Hurricane Band provides superior protection from blow-offs.

Manoir shingles also feature an extensive dual-layer construction, and their SeBS polymer-modified asphalt formulation provides added flexibility and long-term granule retention, and meet Class 3 impact resistance requirements according to the Standard FM 4473.

Covered by a limited lifetime warranty and perfectly suited for all types of architecture, siding, and landscaping, Manoir shingles are available in five state-of-the-art dream colors, inspired by the most breathtaking castles, from Scotland to Bavaria. The collection is the first line of shingles to come out of BP Canada’s newly-created Chroma Color Lab™, where advanced granule application technology and expert color design come together to create spectacular natural blends that beautifully complement today’s upscale exterior finishes.
