Why is a premium roof important?
3-Tab vs Architectural Shingles- What's the difference?
Three-tab shingles have been a popular and widely used roofing material for many years due to their affordability and ease of installation. However, they do have some disadvantages compared to other roofing materials, such as shorter lifespan, limited aesthetics, lower wind resistance, vulnerability to hail damage, limited warranties, less energy efficiency, decreased resale value, and vulnerability to algae growth.
An architectural shingle, also known as a dimensional or laminated shingle, is a type of premium roofing material that offers a more attractive and durable option compared to traditional three-tab shingles. It is called "architectural" because it is designed to add depth and dimension to the roof, providing a more textured and sophisticated appearance. Architectural shingles have become increasingly popular in residential roofing due to their enhanced aesthetics, durability, and performance.
