Install Roofing Shingles involves many different types of styles of shingle proposes and materials to stimulate the desired intuition and protection for your dwelling. A little experiment will help you understand the types of roofing installations options you have available for your dwelling. Below are the most common modes and materials

3 Tap Roofing Shingles: Strip Shingles as they call it, are the original and the most basic of roofing shingles available in the industry. Strip Shingles are denoted by the fact that they are single layered roofing shingles that are generally designed to look like slate. Strip Roofing Shingles have a very flat appearance on the roof line and are typically the lightest weight roofing shingles available in the market. Strip shingles used to be the predominant roofing shingle available and used in the market. Today, however, with significant advances in technology and consumer sophistication, Strip Shingles are used primarily by home builders manufacturing economy priced homes or purchased by homeowners as replacement roofing shingles for homes that already have Strip Shingles on the roof. Giving a less dimensional effect to your roofs looks, 3 tab shingles traditionally are also thinner which contributes to the less dimensional look. Typically, since these shingles ARE thinner, it affects the length of the warranty.

Dimensional Roofing Shingles: Also commonly referred to as architectural or laminated shingle, these are a very popular choice for roofing.  Dimensional Shingles (or Architectural Laminated Shingles) are now the predominant roofing shingles installed in North America. These products are manufactured as dual layered products (or multi-layered in the case of CertainTeed’s tri-laminate technology) and provide a thicker and richer appearance on the roof (a multi-dimensional look). Dimensional Roofing Shingles also typically are heavier weight than Strip Roofing Shingles and usually have improved warranty protections, these shingles often have 30+ year warranties and because of popularity have many different styles to choose from.

Premium Roofing Shingles: Premium shingles may vary from manufacturer to manufacturer but, these are commonly shingled with more design and material improvements. Premium Shingles are usually described as laminated shingles that have a differentiated appearance or functionality from traditional Dimensional Roofing Shingles. These products may have designs that mimic “old-world” roofing shingles, like natural slate or natural shake roofing shingles. CertainTeed’s products are prime examples of Premium roofing shingles that provide an enhanced aesthetic appeal. Premium Roofing Shingles might also have important functional improvements such as Impact Resistance or Solar Reflectivity that can possibly extend the life of the roofing system or provide lower energy costs. Some premium shingle improvements may include being double lamanent, fiberglass reinforced or adhesion. Premium shingles usually have a longer warranty because of these improvements for longevity and durability.
