Asphalt shingles are a popular roofing material. Available in a range of designs, colors and styles, they can match different types of home exterior. In terms of performance and durability, asphalt shingles are definitely capable of protecting your home against the elements and lasting for several years.
In this post, Certified Roofing Solutions, LLC discusses the three types of asphalt shingles to help you pick the right roofing material for your home.
Strip shingles are also known as three-tab shingles. They are the original and most basic type of asphalt shingles, consisting of a single layer of asphalt. These shingles typically have a flat appearance and resemble the look of slate. They are also lightweight and cost less than other asphalt shingle types.
Dimensional shingles are also called architectural or laminate shingles. They are made with two or more layers of asphalt, which are combined to create a thicker and more multi-dimensional appearance. Their look is similar to wood shake and slate roofing. Dimensional shingles are heavier than strip shingles, and they typically have better warranty coverage.
Luxury shingles have the highest quality among the different types of asphalt shingles. Their appearance and functionality are premium. A quick look at these shingles will easily show you how they outclass dimensional shingles in terms of quality, coloration and dimensionality. That’s why luxury asphalt shingles are considered to have the most realistic representation of wood shake and slate roofing. Apart from that, luxury shingles offer superior protection against weathering.
