If you choose shingles as your material roof, please keep in mind the market has different options: architectural and traditional 3-tab shingles:
Architectural shingles (also referred to as laminated or dimensional shingles) are the latest addition to the shingle line up. Most homeowners who are looking for an upgrade in style and function chose architectural shingles. They cost about 20% more than the traditional three-tab shingles. The steeper cost isn’t just paying for good looks. The architectural shingles are thicker because they are made up of several layers of laminated shingles. Therefore, they are heavier and much more resistant to wind and storm damage. They are less likely to warp and wear like a three-tab shingle. Architectural shingles also typically have a longer warranty. Some architectural shingles come with a 40-50-year warranty (termed lifetime) compared to a 20-30-year warranty for three-tab shingles. Plus, architectural shingles are rated up to 110 miles per hour winds compared to 70 miles an hour for three-tab shingles.
