Benefits of Architectural Shingles

A roofing system comprised of architectural shingles has many benefits to your home from improving the look to maximizing its protection. These shingles are created with laminated asphalt and are made with multiple layers, making them thicker, heavier and stronger than traditional shingles.


Architectural shingles are available in multiple colors, textures, and styles to imitate wood shakes, tile, or even slate. These shingles make it easier than ever to have the look you have always wanted, without the exorbitant price tag.


While these shingles may cost more than traditional 3-tab shingles initially, these shingles can last almost twice as long. In fact, they can last up to 50 years. Because of their heavier creation, these shingle systems can withstand winds of 125 MPH, whereas traditional shingles are known to withstand 85 MPH winds. The asphalt used for architectural shingles is also higher-quality than their 3-tab counterparts, making them more durable in hail and rain as well.

Ease of Installation

As with other shingle systems, architectural shingles are relatively simple to install for professional roofers and can be installed over other shingles to eliminate the cost of a tear-off. Though heavier than traditional shingles, there is no need for the bracing or reinforcement needed in other heavy systems like slate or tile.
