Architectural VS Three Tab Shingles

Architectural VS Three Tab Shingles 1
We truly believe knowledge is a powerful tool when you are investing in any project to do with your home.
Replacing your old roof can be a costly yet one of the most profitable ways to invest in your home.
Here is one question which often arises, what is the difference between architectural shingles and three tab shingles? Our roofing team chooses to use architectural shingles for our roofing projects.
Architectural and Three-Tab:
Architectural asphalt shingles are individual tiles that are thicker than three-tab to create a layered, durable texture on your roof. The higher quality material and longer installation make architectural shingles more expensive. However, they can last 15 to 30 years and are more weather resistant.
Three-tab asphalt shingles are thinner and cut to look like three shingles. This allows for faster installation and creates a uniform, brick-like pattern. They are prone to high winds and generally last 7 to 15 years. These are usually the most affordable roofing option.
