EXOVATIONS® is proud to provide the very best residential roofing shingles on the market.
For residential applications, asphalt shingles are most commonly used. But there are different types of asphalt shingles, so you should talk with your roofing contractor and research the pros and cons of these products when selecting the best roofing shingle for your home. You should also check with your homeowner’s association to see whether a certain type of roof shingle or specific shingle colors are required in your neighborhood.
The first decision homeowners make during a roof replacement project is whether to use basic 3-Tab shingles, or upgrade to an Architectural style shingle. There are significant differences between these two types of shingles.
Basic three-tab asphalt shingles are widely used and provide solid performance at a budget-friendly price point. In this type of asphalt roofing material, each shingle is cut into three equal-sized “tabs”—the exposed portion of the shingle that you can see once it is installed. Every shingle is identical in size, shape and thickness, resulting in a uniform appearance.
Architectural shingles, sometimes called dimensional shingles or laminate shingles, are visually distinctive and give a more sophisticated appearance to the roof. This shingle is not cut into tabs, but has pieces of additional asphalt in varying widths laminated to the shingle with an asphalt sealant. This creates an intentional variation in thickness and color shading, which mimics the irregular shadows and random sizes that are characteristic of a wood shake or slate roof. Architectural shingles are thicker, and can weigh 50% more than 3-tab shingles.
