Commonly used in the USA and compared to other types of roofing materials, asphalt shingles are an inexpensive option for most homeowners. This type of roofing material is durable and fits most budgets. They last for many years. Asphalt shingle roof material is available in a variety of colors in both organic and fiberglass with asphalt exterior. The organic shingle is comprised of paper or wood products. While, the fiberglass shingle has a fiberglass base. Asphalt shingles are offered for purchase as three-tab, dimensional, and luxury type shingles. The three-tab, aka 3-tab, shingle is the most commonly purchased type of asphalt roofing material.
Since the 1960’s, three-tab shingles have remained the most popular type of shingle for residential and commercial buildings. They are popular due to the relatively low cost, various colors, and the long-lasting warranties of 10 to 20 years. Dimensional shingles are often called architectural and laminate shingles. The luxury type are considered to be premium shingles. Three-tab and architectural shingles are available in both asphalt and fiberglass.
With multiple layers, architectural shingles are heavier and more expensive than other types of roofing material. Strong, durable, sealed tab shingles withstand wind speeds between 60 to 150 mph. Sealed tab are popular and last through all types of inclement weather. Before purchasing shingles, check product reviews and ask for recommendations about the best type of material that is suitable for your home or business.
