Architectural shingles have a dimensional appearance due to their variety of sizes and shapes. They have increased wind resistance since they are heavier and nearly 50% thicker than conventional three-tab shingles. Their lower areas are laminated with a second asphalt layer, and they may have distinct cuts or none at all. This gives them the dimensional, curved appearance that makes them attractive. The layers are joined together with asphalt sealant, enhancing the waterproofness of the tiles. But are the pricey architectural shingles worth it? Compared to a three-tab shingle roof, an architectural shingle roof will last longer and come with a warranty. Additionally, they might raise the value of your house.
The cuts, or tabs, along its lengthy lower border are what distinguish three-tab shingles from other types. When fitted, the resulting profile gives the appearance that each shingle is three different pieces, although it is actually just one. Since they have been around for a while, three-tab shingles continue to be one of the most affordable and well-liked options for residential roofing all throughout the country. The crew at Home Exteriors by Baker has a wealth of experience installing three-tab shingles properly on every home. We’ll advise you on which decking will best support your three-tab shingle.
