Types of Asphalt Shingle Roofs We Install
Three-tab Asphalt Shingles
Three-tab shingles are the most common type of asphalt shingle. A three-tab shingle is designed to look like three shingles, but it is actually all cut out in one piece. It’s easy to install and very popular.
Architectural Asphalt Shingles
Architectural shingles are manufactured with an additional layer of asphalt to give them more dimension. This helps improve your home’s curb appeal while also offering a longer service life than three-tab shingles.
Luxury Asphalt Shingles
Premium or luxury asphalt shingles are made to mimic the look of other roofing products, like wood or slate. If you’re looking for a fancier roof for a fraction of the cost, these are a great choice!

- Stylish: There are many styles of asphalt shingles to choose from to give your home maximum aesthetic appeal. Some styles even mimic the look of concrete or slate tiles that most people can’t even tell the difference!
Cons of Asphalt Shingles
- Shorter lifespan: Even at 20-25 years, asphalt shingle roofs have the shortest lifespan compared to other roofing materials. If you plan on passing your home down to the next few generations, you might consider something more durable.
