Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt Shingles

Probably one of the most popular types of roofing would be asphalt shingles. This might come as no surprise to you, but this is the most common among residential roofing such as in your neighborhoods. It’s known for being very protective against rain or any other weather conditions as well as coming in a variety of colors making it the most widely known roofing.

There are 3 types of asphalt shingles.


  • 3-tab Shingles: This is the first of the 3 and tends to be affordable and highly functional making this the most basic type of asphalt shingle. They tend to be a lightweight material and are designed to hold up for 20 years before needing slight repairs. However, they tend to lack the aesthetic functionalities of newly dimensional or luxury shingles.


  • Dimensional Asphalt Shingles: The second of the 3 happens to hold tons of strength behind its shingles. They are extremely durable with averaging 30+ years under their belt before needing repairs if the shingles have been properly installed. Disclaimer: you will generally have to pay more upfront for dimensional asphalt shingles, but it’s worth it if you’re able to afford it.


  • Luxury Asphalt Shingles: With having a multi-dimensional appearance and maximum durability, luxury asphalt shingles are the way to go if you’re able to do so. They are able to replicate the look of natural slate or cedar roofs for a small percentage of the price.
