Homeowners tired of the same drab appearance of asphalt shingles may look into the architectural style roofing shingles that can add more dimension and texture to their roof.
The cost for architectural shingles is slightly higher than most traditional 3 tab asphalt shingles, but the extra benefits and longer life expectancy make them a better, long-term bargain.

The longer lifespan is one of the main reasons why architectural shingles are so popular. The longer lifespan of these shingles results from them being made of thicker heavier material and can be used in any application where 3 tab asphalt shingles can be used. While 3 tab shingles will generally have a warranty for 25 years, architectural roofing shingles come with a 50 year warranty.
Architectural shingles are constructed of a heavier material with a thicker nailing strip. Due to their heavier construction they are also more resistant to wind damage and the effects of temperature variations. They are ideal for homes in areas where weather conditions can vary greatly.
Architectural roofing shingles have a beautiful visual appearance. They come in many colors and textures, and will give your roof a unique appearance with much more character. Compared to a row pattern seen in 3 tab shingles, with architectural roofing shingles you’ll have more choice for a customized look that will distinguish your house from the rest. Architectural roofing shingles are more aesthetically pleasing since they replicate the look of cedar wood shakes or slate shingles.
