Which Shingle is Right for You?

Which Shingle is Right for You?

Easily the most common roofing material in America, asphalt shingles are effective in almost all environmental conditions. Made from a fiberglass base and topped with asphalt and granules, asphalt shingles can withstand a great deal of pressure, but there are a few types of asphalt shingles. At Pro Atlanta Roofing, we know about shingles and we are here to help you decide which shingle is right for you. Remember, we are also your source for repairs, replacements, and installations. So, if you need a professional roofer in Atlanta, then be sure to call Pro Atlanta Roofing to get in touch with a friendly representative. With that said, let’s go over some types of shingles.

3-Tab Asphalt Shingles

If you want something affordable that gets the job done, then the three-tab asphalt shingle is perfect for you. The three-tab asphalt shingles are made from fiberglass coated with mineral granules, giving the shingles varying color tones. They commonly come in 12 inch by 36-inch sizes and can withstand the elements for up to 20 years. Their outer layer is notched into three tabs for aesthetics but the beauty ends there. The three-tab asphalt shingles are a good choice for homeowners on a budget, but they lack aesthetic qualities of higher tier types of shingles. These shingles are also susceptible to blow-off, which is exactly what it sounds like.

Dimensional Asphalt Shingles

Also known as laminated or architectural shingles, dimensional asphalt shingles have two layers of shingles bonded together to give a three-dimensional appearance. These shingles boast incredible strength with the potential to last 30 years or more. You will pay more for these than you would for the three-tab asphalt shingles but the dimensional asphalt shingles are the most popular option for good reason. They are often warrantied for 30 years and look great too! There are a variety of colors to choose from when you select the dimensional asphalt shingles.

Luxury Asphalt Shingles

If you want your roof to compete with the appearance of high-end luxury roofing material such as slate and cedar shake, then consider luxury asphalt shingles. The multi-dimensional texture of these shingles creates depth that replicate the look of real shakes or slate. Luxury shingles also have extra layers that is not suitable for every home, but that weight provides incredible strength against tears and impact.
