Want A Better Looking, More Durable Roofing System?
Architectural or Dimensional Shingles Are Your Answer!
If you aren't thrilled with the plain look of a 3-tab standard shingle then the next step up is architectural shingles also known as dimensional or designer shingles. With an architectural shingle 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 mimicking the appearance of cedar shake, slate, stone, and other materials.
Paragon Exteriors LLC is a full service roofing contractor based in Waukesha County, WI and we sell and install architectural shingle roofing systems on high end homes for new construction, home improvement and total roof replacements due to storm damage. Architectural shingles will help enhance the look of your home or business while offering excellent protection against the elements.
What Is An Architectural Shingle?
It’s actually a combination of several factors beginning with superior materials and construction of the shingles themselves. Architectural shingles or also known as laminated or dimensional shingles provide a stunning three dimensional appearance to your roofing surface. Some of the most attractive architectural roofing shingles simulate cedar wood shakes or other popular luxury roofing materials such as stone or slate.
Architectural shingles themselves also offer homeowners many more color and style options. This flexibility 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 will set your home apart from the rest and boost your curb appeal.

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.
