How Architectural Shingles Are Different From Asphalt Shingles
Typical roof shingles are usually called 3-tab and asphalt shingles because of how they’re made, and asphalt shingles are similar but have specific features that offer superior protection. Asphalt shingles are:
- Thicker than traditional shingles, making them more impact resistant
- Heavier, making them more wind resistant
- Offer a wider range of colors to match more home exterior looks
- Have designs that resemble other roofing materials like tiles or wooden shakes
- Designed to overlap and offer seamless roof waterproofing
- Provide superior insulation and reduce energy costs
How Roof Shingles Save Money for MN Homeowners
Choosing architectural shingles for a new roof installation or roof replacement saves homeowners money on the front end and over time. First, shingles are economical to install, so they’re cost effective when you get your new roof. Then, their insulating and reflective properties lower costs for energy over the years. Architectural shingles are also less expensive to repair than other roofing materials.
