What are Architectural Shingles?

Also known as laminated or dimensional shingles, architectural roofing shingles are among the highest quality roofing products made. An architectural shingle consists of several layers with a heavier granule covering. The layers bring depth and dimension to your roof and have a greater resistance to uplift in a windstorm.

Architectural shingles can mimic a variety of natural-looking materials like slate or wood. They come in a wider variety of colors (red, silver, tan, black, blue, brown) than standard asphalt shingles. They also can come in variegated color patterns, thus allowing for nearly limitless color and style options. Architectural shingles are lightweight and a great choice for steep or complex roofs. These shingles are ideal for highly sloped roofs because their design allows water and snow to slide off easily.

Consequently, architectural singles usually come at a premium price. This type of shingled roof will cost about
25% more. However, an architectural shingle roof has a 24 to 30-year life, with some super-premium grades rated for up to a 40-year lifespan. For the extra cost, you will be rewarded with a 50% longer lifespan and a better
looking roof.
