Traditional 3-Tab Shingles

Roofers refer to a shingle as 3-Tab because it is made up of three individual tabs that are a 12” wide. 3-Tab shingles have an average lifespan of 25 -30 years.

Like Architectural shingles, 3-Tab roofing shingles are asphalt-based products that work by shedding water to the shingle below.


Average Lifespan: 25 – 30 Years

Benefits: 3-tab design

Architectural Shingles

Architectural Shingles (also known as dimensional or laminate shingles) differ from the traditional 3-tab asphalt shingle look as the actual shingle tabs have various sizes and shapes. These various sizes and shapes give them a more “dimensional” look to them and can actually make a shingle roof look more like shake.

Architectural shingles are thicker than 3-tab shingles and with this, they have a longer lifespan than most 3-tab shingles. Architectural shingles almost across the board have a minimum 30-year lifespan and are rated to resist higher speeds of wind.  Another benefit is that Architectural shingles help maintain or raise the value of the home as long as they are properly installed.


Average Lifespan: 30-50 years

Benefits: Add elegance and character, and provides superior wind resistance


One of the greatest advantages of a cedar roof is the natural beauty of cedar and the way in which it gracefully ages into a beautiful grayish silver tone. Cedar wood is long-lasting, making it an ideal roofing material. Cedar lasts at least 10 years longer than common roofing materials, like asphalt. Cedar wood shingles and shakes are also resistant to strong winds and are durable in heavy rains, hail storms, snowstorms and other types of severe storms.

Cedar wood roofs are also energy efficient, providing a natural insulation up to two times that of asphalt shingles. This allows you to conserve home heating and cooling costs, and significantly save on energy bills.

Benefits: High quality, affordable roof protection
