- Shingle Roofing: Shingle roofing is a roofing assembly typically used for residential buildings such as homes. This is not the case all the time. Asphalt shingles are cheap and reliable. There are different types of shingles depending on what kind of look or protection you want for your roof.
The 3 main types of shingles are 3-tab shingles, architectural shingles, & luxury shingles.
3-tab shingles are the most basic type of shingles. They are made of a single layer of asphalt. Strip shingles have a very flat appearance, which makes the roof look slate. Architectural shingles are the most common type of asphalt shingles.
Architectural shingles are manufactured with 2 or more layers of asphalt that are fused together for a thicker & richer multi-dimensional appearance. They also are typically heavier than 3-tab shingles & have improved warranty protection.
Luxury shingles are the highest-quality shingles available. They offer a different appearance and functionality that the architectural shingles cannot offer.
