ASPHALT SHINGLES

 

Asphalt roof shingles are the most popular roofing material used on homes across North America, and with good reason. They offer a wide variety of colors and styles which are designed to protect a home for decades of weathering with minimal upkeep.

 

There are different types of Roof Shingles that are available to choose from.

Strip Shingles Also known as 3-tab shingles (due to the cut of the shingle) or simply strips, strip shingles are the original and most basic asphalt shingles. They are made from a single layer of asphalt and have a very flat appearance that typically offers a slate look. 

Dimensional Shingles Also known as architectural or laminated shingles, are asphalt shingles with a twist. Laminated shingles, also known as "architectural" or "dimensional" shingles, are layered, and their thickness and depth make them look more like slate or wood shakes. 

Luxury Shingles are made from a blend of asphalt and other materials that make them three times heavier than their natural counterparts, meaning they can stand up stronger to high winds, hurricanes, snow storms and hail.
