Want A Better Looking, More Durable Roofing System?
Architectural Shingle Roofing Is Your Answer!

If you aren't thrilled with the plain look of a 3-tab standard shingle then the next step up is architectural shingle roofing which is known as dimensional or designer shingle roofing.  With architectural shingle roofing you're taking a big step-up in shingle durability (they are thicker), they usually have the longest and best warranty and they come in many luxury styles and textures mimicking the appearance of cedar shake, slate, stone, and other materials.

What Makes Architectural Shingle Roofing Better?

It's one thing to say architectural shingle roofing is better than a 3 tab shingle but it's another to actually explain why that it is.  Well we'll tell you.  It’s actually a combination of several factors that make them a better option beginning with the superior materials and construction of the shingles themselves.

Because of their construction they are thicker and heavier than standard shingles.  This drastically improves their strength and their ability to withstand strong winds, and more intense weather conditions such as driving rain or hail.  3 tab shingles are substantially lighter which makes them more susceptible to strong wind as they can sometimes be ripped away.

A more durably constructed shingle allows manufacturers to stand behind their shingles with a much longer warranty period.  Your typical 3 tab shingle might have a warranty period of 20 to 30 years.  An architectural roofing shingle (when installed by a factory certified contractor) can carry a warranty that lasts 30 to 50 years and in some cases is also non pro-rated.

If you're after the BEST quality roofing shingle than an architectural shingle roofing system is the way to go.

It's not all about the durability though.  Architectural shingle roofing or also known as laminated or dimensional shingle roofing also provides a stunning three dimensional appearance to your roof. Some of the most attractive architectural roofing shingles simulate cedar wood shakes or other popular luxury roofing materials such as stone or slate.

If you want your roofing system to make a statement and improve your curb appeal than you won't find a better option than architectural shingles.

Architectural shingle roofing also offers homeowners many more color and style options then regular asphalt 3 tab shingles.  This flexibility in appearance and design allows you to install a roofing system that really accents your home and in a way that you get to choose.  The color, style and depth of an architectural shingle roofing system will set your home apart from the rest and really boost your curb appeal.

The bottom line is that architectural roofing shingles are a rock-solid investment for your home.  They are more durable, they look better, they have a more robust warranty, and they can also increase the resale value of your home.

Dollar for dollar an architectural shingle roofing system is going to cost less money over the long-term because you won't have to replace it in 15-20 years like a 3 tab shingle roof.  With the average lifespan of an architectural shingle roof exceeding 30 years you'll be getting years more service out of your roof.

Your new architectural shingles should be good for at least 25 years or even as long as 50 years depending on the particular shingle you've chosen.  To get the maximum warranty and longevity out of your architectural shingles they often need to be installed as a complete roofing system as outlined by the specific manufacturer.  Architectural shingles are built to last a very long time, no question.

In short, yes, they are a better shingle.  Architectural shingles are manufactured with a heavy fiberglass mat as their base and then ceramic-coated mineral granules are tightly embedded into the carefully refined, water-resistant asphalt.  They are thicker than your standard 3 tab shingles and as a result are much more durable and offer a better aesthetic look to your roof.
