Asphalt shingles are a favourite because they are widely used by most homeowners. The shingle itself is thin, flat, and has a coarse, grainy surface. Asphalt shingles are affordable and come in a variety of colours, styles and sizes. They are easy to cut, fasten, fit, and install and are cost efficient which makes them a popular choice amongst roofers and clients alike.

There are two main styles of asphalt shingles you can choose from, three-tab shingles and architectural shingles.

Three-tab Shingles are weather resistant and come in a variety of colours that will beautify and complement any home. They come in one size and shape and come with a lower price tag, which makes them affordable – and the economic choice – when deciding on a shingle roof replacement.

Architectural Shingles are also weather resistant. In fact, they are known to resist harsher weather conditions than three-tab shingles. Architectural shingles come in a variety of shapes and sizes and differ from the traditional asphalt shingle look. Architectural shingles weigh 50 per cent more and are thicker than three-tab shingles. Architectural shingles have a higher price tag than three-tab shingles, however, they increase the value of your home and are more reliable in protecting your home from treacherous weather.
