Types of Asphalt Shingle Roofs
Asphalt shingles come in three primary classifications. Understanding the distinctions between each kind of material is key for helping homeowners decide which type would be most optimal for their house. Our knowledgeable professionals are ready to help explain the unique positives and negatives of every possibility.
The three primary kinds of shingles to choose from include:
- Strip shingles – Another name for this type of shingle is a “3-tab shingle.” This kind of shingle is the most common. Since it is only formed from one asphalt layer, it looks quite flat. 3-tab shingles are the cheapest option available since they are so light and use very little material.
- Dimensional shingles – A highly popular type of shingle, these kinds of shingles are also called laminate or architectural shingles. Two sheets of asphalt are tightly bound together to make the shingles more robust. Their thick design makes them look more multi-dimensional, and they can even take on the appearance of slate and wood.
- Luxury shingles – These shingles get their name because they appear so natural, often looking identical to quarried stone or wooden shakes. Luxury shingles are extra sturdy and heavy, enabling superior protection from bad weather.

No matter what kind of asphalt shingle roofing is selected, advanced engineering techniques have made these materials very hardy. Modern asphalt shingles feature many advantages over old products, enabling the new roof to last much longer. Shingles are now able to fight the growth of mold, mildew, fungi, and algae, although regular maintenance is still key. These products are also much tougher against the wear and tear that comes from hard rain and hail. Residents who are worried about the snow and ice during the winter can have their minds set at ease. Many asphalt shingles are designed to be fire resistant as well, boosting property owners’ sense of security.
A final benefit is that shingle products are designed to help reflect the sun's rays, which decreases the need for air conditioning. If the home is naturally kept cooler, residents do not have to pay high HVAC utility bills. Discover even more advantages by talking to our team at Penn Ohio Roofing & Siding Group.
