Shingle choice is not just about looks, it can affect energy efficiency and even the resale value of your home. Let’s discuss the three most common types of shingles.
Three Most Common Roofing Shingles:
Three-tab shingles consist of a single layer of asphalt, and lie flat against the roof in a strip like fashion. For this reason, we sometimes refer to them as strip shingles. Three-tab shingles are durable, cost effective, and an excellent choice for most homes. They also require minimal maintenance and cleaning.
Architectural shingles can mimic other types of building materials. I.e. Often have the look of wood or slate. However architectural shingles are actually multiple layers of asphalt fused together, to create a durable and reliable shingle that looks great. Often referred to as a “laminate” shingle, architectural shingles appear to have more depth and definition than 3-tab shingles.
Designer shingles are as they sound- “high end,” offering more luxurious looks and designs. If you’re looking to create a period look, or add unique or specific aesthetics- designer shingles offer a wide pallet to choose from. In addition to looking pretty, designer shingles also max out in durability, energy efficiency, and weather protection. Consequently, designer shingles are typically more expensive than their counterparts.
