Types of Asphalt Shingle Roofs We Install
There are three types of asphalt shingles to consider: three-tab asphalt shingles, architectural, and premium asphalt shingles.
Three-tab Asphalt Shingles
Three-tab shingles are the most common type of asphalt shingle. They are named after their cutouts, which make them look like three separate pieces. Three-tab shingles are lightweight and easy to maintain, lasting up to 20 years with proper maintenance.
Architectural Asphalt Shingles
Are you looking for a boost to your curb appeal? Consider architectural asphalt shingles. They have more color variety and add dimension to your roof’s appearance. Even better, they are laminated and come in reflective versions that reduce your cooling costs in the summer! They also have a longer lifespan of 50 years compared to three-tab shingles.
Premium Asphalt Shingles
Looking for something luxurious without the high-end cost? Premium / luxury asphalt shingles are designed to look like other types of roofing material, including slate and cedar shake.
The Pros and Cons of Asphalt Shingle Roofing
When making your decision about the type of roofing you prefer, there will be pros and cons. It’s best to know what to expect.
Pros of Asphalt Shingles
Homeowners love installing asphalt shingles on their homes because they are affordable and durable. They are also an easy roofing material to work with because they are lightweight and easy to install. What this means for you is that your next roof installation can be completed in just one or two days with little disruption to your life. Of course, you want to make sure you hire a professional roofer who will ensure a proper installation!
Cons of Asphalt Shingles
As the most affordable type of roofing material, asphalt shingles also happen to have the shortest lifespan compared to others. However, they can last up to 20–50 years, depending on the type of shingle you choose. At the end of their service life, asphalt shingles cannot be recycled, thus contributing to landfills.
