Shingle Roofing

Because asphalt shingles are affordable, easy to install, and are available in various colors, they are the most widely used roofing material in residential applications. Shingles make up the roof’s top layer that protects the concealed underlayment, and ultimately the structure of your home.

Types of Asphalt Shingles

Our shingle roofing crews have installed hundreds of tile roofs over the years and can help you understand which type of tile will be best suited for your home.


Why is it called a 3-tab shingle? These shingles are designed specifically to produce a piece that has the appearance of three separate shingles. They are generally the most affordable asphalt shingle and look fantastic despite being less expensive.


Architectural shingles (also known as laminate shingles) are not only thicker but more durable than 3-tab. But with that comes a higher price tag. These shingles also have more of an aesthetically pleasing and multi-dimensional appearance. They tend to perform better long term and have a longer lifespan than 3-tab.
