Are Architectural Shingles Worth the Extra Cost?

For homeowners who are considering installing an asphalt shingle roof, there are two main types to choose from: three-tab and architectural. Architectural shingles are made with a thicker layer of asphalt that is more refined than three-tab shingles, thus making them the more expensive option. However, there are several advantages that make the additional cost worth it.

Some of the benefits of architectural shingles include:

  • Aesthetic appeal – If you would like a roofing system that looks better than three-tab shingles and as great as slate but is less expensive, architectural shingles are for you. Not only does their three-dimensional appearance give a slate-like look, they are lighter than slate, meaning you don’t have to spend extra money adding support to your roofing structure to support their weight.
  • Increased durability – Architectural shingles are heavier than three-tab shingles, which provides the benefit of increased durability. Known for their ability to withstand higher wind speeds, some types resist damage from winds that are up to 130mph.
  • Extended lifespan – While architectural shingles are more expensive, they are typically warrantied for 35 to 45 years, which is much longer than the warranties of three-tab shingles. While the initial cost is higher, your roofing system will last much longer before requiring a replacement.

If you are still having trouble deciding if architectural shingles are right for your home, give our experts a call for a free consultation. We can evaluate your situation and help you find the perfect roofing materials for your home and budget.

Energy Efficient Shingles

Architectural shingles are among the most energy efficient roofing materials available. They are designed to remain cooler than other shingles by their ability to reflect solar energy, which decreases the amount of heat transferred into your home. When properly installed, architectural shingles can reduce the amount of heating and cooling your home requires to stay comfortable, thus lowering your energy bills. Shingle color can also impact energy efficiency. Lighter colors can further reduce the heat absorption from the sun.
