Asphalt Shingles

The Benefits of Asphalt Shingles:

  • Versatile, durable, and cost-effective
  • Wide variety of colours available
  • Longer Lifespan

Asphalt Three Tab Shingles

A 3-tab shingle has 3 uniform tabs along the lower edge of the shingle. This option is the most basic, entry-level roof shingle option. You usually need roughly 3 bundles of shingles to cover  100 sq. feet of the roof surface.

Benefits of Three Tab Shingles

  • Provides a clean, uniform look
  • Cheaper than architectural shingles

Architectural Shingles

Architectural shingles are constructed by laminating 2 shingle strips together to form a onedimensional shingle. There are a wide variety of shapes and sizes available for the tabs of these shingles – similar to the look of wood shake, but with the durability of asphalt.

The benefits of architectural shingles:

  • Better at handling wind resistance

  • Heavier and more durable than 3-tab shingles

  • Improved waterproofing ability

  • Variety of sizes and shapes of these shingles provide the roof with a more dimensional
    look, adding curb-appeal

  • This option has a longer life expectancy than 3-tab shingles, resulting in longer
    manufacturer’s warranties
