When choosing which shingle type is best for your home, you can choose between three-tab, architectural, premium, and impact-resistant shingles.
Three-tab Asphalt Shingles
Three-tab shingles remain a popular choice of shingle for homeowners today, due to their affordability. They get their name from their look – a flat shingle with three tabs. These shingles are light-weight and require less structural support than other shingle types.
Architectural Asphalt Shingles
Architectural shingles come in a variety of colors and provide a dimensional appearance. The most popular shingle choice for homeowners, architectural asphalt shingles enhance curb appeal and are made with a high quality material, providing a 25-30 year lifespan.
Class 4 Impact Resistant Shingles
Class 4 impact-resistant shingles stand up to damaging hail and debris, ultimately saving homeowners thousands of dollars on long-term maintenance and repairs. Class 4 impact-resistant shingles offer a long lifespan and qualify homeowners for a reduction in their premium.
Premium Asphalt Shingles
These are the most high-end and luxurious types of asphalt shingles available. Also known as designer shingles, premium asphalt shingles are designed to replicate the look and feel of natural materials like slate.
