Asphalt roofing shingles are the most common roofing materials used when installing a new roof. They are affordable, and dependable, and have been around to show they are a reliable roofing system. Asphalt shingles even come in energy-efficient models to reflect more heat away from your attic space, in turn, keeping your attic space cooler and your living space more comfortable.
3-Tab shingles were the most commonly used asphalt shingles 20 years ago. 3-Tab shingles are being phased out because of the small upgrade cost compared to the far superior dimensional shingles.
Dimensional shingles are also known as architectural shingles and have become the industrial standard for asphalt shingles and were made to mimic the look of a cedar shake roof.
Designer asphalt shingles are used when you’re looking to make a statement with your roof, and you still want the durability of asphalt shingles. They are also made to mimic cedar roofs, slate roofs, and more.
