Understanding Architectural Asphalt Shingles

Architectural asphalt shingles, also known as dimensional or laminated shingles, are a premium roofing material known for their enhanced durability and distinctive appearance. Unlike the traditional 3-tab shingles, architectural shingles are composed of two or more layers bonded together, creating a three-dimensional look that adds depth and character to the roof.


  • Enhanced Durability: The multi-layer construction of architectural shingles provides superior durability and resistance to wind uplift, with some products rated to withstand wind speeds of up to 130 mph.
  • Longer Lifespan: Architectural shingles typically come with a longer lifespan, often ranging from 30 to 50 years, due to their thicker, more robust design.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: These shingles offer a luxurious, textured appearance that can mimic the look of wood shakes or slate roofing, adding curb appeal and potentially increasing the property’s value.
  • Variety of Styles and Colors: Architectural shingles are available in a wide range of colors and styles, allowing homeowners to customize their roof’s appearance to complement their home’s architecture and color scheme.
  • Better Warranty: Due to their durability, manufacturers often offer more extended warranties on architectural shingles compared to 3-tab shingles.


  • Higher Cost: They are more expensive than 3-tab shingles, both in terms of material and installation costs, due to their enhanced features and benefits.
  • Weight: They are heavier than strip shingles, which may not be suitable for all structures without adequate support.
  • Installation Complexity: The installation process for architectural shingles can be more complex and time-consuming, necessitating experienced professionals to ensure proper placement and maximum performance.


Architectural vs. 3-Tab Shingles

When comparing architectural shingles to the 3-tab version, it’s important to consider the differences in aesthetics, performance, and cost. While 3-tabs provide a cost-effective, straightforward roofing solution with a flat appearance, architectural shingles offer a more sophisticated look with enhanced durability. The choice between the two often comes down to budget, desired longevity, and the architectural style of the property.
