Architectural Shingles

Architectural vs Regular Shingle

Regular shingles are a 3 tab that consists of only one size and shape. 3 tab shingles are not as thick as architectural shingles and therefore have a shorter longevity. 3 tab shingles are more inexpensive and are preferred but the popularity is waning with these types of shingles. These shingles are thicker versions of the traditional 3 tab shingles and weigh over half more. They are able to resist the severity of wind damage and have a longer lifetime due to how the shingles are made. While the regular shingles are losing in the popularity contest, this material is becoming more popular to use in the property roofing sector and will increase property value.
