Types of Asphalt Shingle Roofs
We want to make sure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision for your home. Here is a breakdown of the different types of asphalt shingles you may have heard of:
Three-tab Asphalt Shingles
Three-tab shingles are the most basic asphalt shingle type available. Each shingle strip has three tabs, making it look like three separate pieces. Three-tab shingles are often used on inexpensive homes or for repairing roofs on homes that already have three-tab shingles.
Architectural Asphalt Shingles
Architectural shingles are also known as dimensional shingles because they are thicker than three-tab shingles, adding more to your home’s curb appeal. They are also more durable than three-tab shingles and can last up to 50 years if properly maintained. We specialize in installing CertainTeed Landmark Architectural Shingles because they offer the most durability compared to three-tab shingles.
Premium Asphalt Shingles
Premium shingles are the thickest type of asphalt shingle and are often designed to look like higher-end materials such as slate or cedar.
