There are many different styles of asphalt shingles, the two most popular are 3 tab shingles and laminate or architectural shingles. 3 tab shingles feature notches or keyways that create what looks like three separate shingles, giving the classic look of slate. The laminate or architectural shingles have a textured and layered appearance that cast attractive shadow lines, meant to look similar to wood roofs.
With these visual advantages, composition shingles are a smart option for your roof, as they also have physical advantages. Made with multiple layers of reinforced asphalt, then topped with a layer of high-quality mineral granules that help to protect the shingles from various elements such as sunlight, animals and algae growth.
