Classic to Contemporary: Asphalt Shingle Options

Different types of asphalt shingles can fit with any roofing job, from basic asphalt three-tab shingles to advanced dimensional asphalt shingles that are textured and multi-dimensional, offering more protection and a longer lifespan than basic asphalt shingles. 

The beauty of asphalt shingles is that they come in a variety of colors, styles and textures giving you freedom when choosing the best aesthetic look for your home. The lowly asphalt shingle has come a long way over the past 100 years, providing homeowners with an economical and durable roof covering solution.

Three-tab shingles

Three-tab asphalt shingles are the most basic and affordable type of asphalt shingle. They feature a straightforward, flat design with three tabs cut into the bottom edge that create an interlocking pattern when installed.

While cost-effective, three-tab shingles tend to offer less dimensional texture and design flexibility compared to architectural or laminated styles. They remain a viable option for homeowners prioritizing value over aesthetic flair.

At American Roofing & Exteriors, we carry a range of three-tab shingles to meet different durability needs and budget requirements. You can add your personal touch by choosing from many color pattern options.

Dimensional  / Architectural shingles

Moving beyond basic three-tab shingles, dimensional and architectural styles provide added depth and visual appeal. Dimensional shingles feature multiple layers and are cut in varied shapes to create a textured, layered effect reminiscent of wood shakes.

Architectural shingles incorporate unique designs to mimic the look of premium roofing materials like slate or tile. Both dimensional and architectural shingles offer enhanced protection and longevity compared to standard three-tab shingles.

Our roofing experts can advise on the best dimensional or architectural shingles to suit your home’s style and performance needs.

What are asphalt shingles?


Asphalt shingles have been a popular roofing choice for many years due to their durability, affordability, and aesthetic. These shingles are created by combining asphalt with fiberglass or organic materials, such as recycled paper, and then layering asphalt over the top. The result is an asphalt material that’s both waterproof yet breathable – adding protection against the elements while helping to reduce any inside condensation. 

The application of asphalt provides a protective shield against weather & moisture, without sacrificing style or beauty in your home. Fiberglass asphalt shingles have a reinforcing mat that enhances their flexibility and durability; some of them come with additional features such as algae-resistant coatings or impact-resistant granules to improve performance.

Advantages of using asphalt shingle roofing

Asphalt shingles have long been an optimal choice for roofing due to their many advantages. Asphalt shingle roofing is one of the most cost-effective roofing materials available, with installation costs sometimes being as low as half that of other roofing materials. They’re also resistant to mold, mildew, insects, and other damage-causing elements with strong waterproofing capabilities. In addition, asphalt has flame-resistance properties that reduce the risk of fire hazards. 

The asphalt also helps to reflect the sun’s rays, allowing it to keep your home cooler and reduce air conditioning costs. Plus, asphalt is lightweight so it won’t cause too much stress on your home’s structure. This roofing is relatively hassle-free, It doesn’t require specialized cleaning products and can be easily maintained with a simple hose and brush. This makes it ideal for busy homeowners who don’t have the time or energy for more intensive cleaning. All this makes asphalt shingle roofing an ideal choice for homeowners who want an affordable roofing solution with long-term durability of up to 30 years.

Understanding Asphalt Shingle Roofs: FAQ

Have another question? Ask us!

The lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof depends on several factors, including the quality of the shingles, the installation process, and the local climate. On average, asphalt shingle roofs last between 15 and 30 years, with higher-quality shingles lasting closer to the upper end of that range. With proper maintenance and care, an asphalt shingle roof can last even longer.

The pros of asphalt shingle roofs include their affordability, versatility, and relatively long lifespan. They are also relatively easy to install and come in a wide range of colors and styles to suit any aesthetic. The cons of asphalt shingle roofs include the potential for damage from severe weather, such as high winds or hail. Additionally, while they are more durable than some other roofing options, they are still not as long-lasting as more pricy materials, like metal or tile.

Shingle roofing is typically priced per roofing square, which is a unit of measure in roofing that equates to 100 square feet. The cost per roofing square can vary based on the type of shingles chosen, the complexity of the roof (pitch, number of stories, chimneys, skylights, etc.), and the region of the country. It’s also important to note that the total cost of a roofing project will not only include the shingles themselves, but also other necessary materials (underlayment, nails, flashing, etc.) and labor. It’s always recommended to get a detailed estimate from a reputable contractor to understand all the costs involved in a shingle roof replacement or installation.
