Different Types of Shingles

Different Types of Shingles
Roofing

3-tab shingles are the most common type of shingles on the market. They have a very flat appearance and are what most people picture when they think of the word “shingle”.


Shingles are available in two basic categories: 20 year & 25 year, with the 25 year shingle being available with Fungus Resistance to keep the black streaks off of the roof.

20 YEAR
A good basic choice if function is the primary goal.
25 YEAR/FUNGUS RESISTANT
Identical in appearance, this shingle is made with a higher tear and pull resistance. Also, it is the most inexpensive shingle available with Fungus Resistance.

ARCHITECTURAL SHINGLES
Architectural Shingles If appearance is an influential factor in addition to function, these value-added shingles have a number of different looks and color blends giving the roof a “layered” look. These laminated shingles weigh more and are stronger than economy shingles and, as a result, offer a greater degree of wind, tear and blow-off resistance in addition to greater value and longer warranties. Most are available with fungus resistance.
