There are many homes that enjoy the look and feel of a shingle roof. Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used shingle type in Arizona. One of the commonly asked questions we get when considering what kind of shingle to replace it with is “What is the difference between Architectural Shingles and 3-Tab Shingles?”
Architectural shingles and three-tab shingles are two common types of asphalt shingles used in residential roofing. While both types are made of asphalt and have a similar appearance, there are some key differences between the two.
- Appearance: Architectural shingles are thicker and have a more dimensional look, giving them a more upscale appearance than three-tab shingles. Three-tab shingles have a flatter, more uniform look.
- Durability: Architectural shingles are thicker and more durable than three-tab shingles. They are less likely to be damaged by wind and hail and have a longer lifespan than three-tab shingles.
- Cost: Architectural shingles are generally more costly than three-tab shingles due to their higher quality and thicker construction.
- Installation: Architectural shingles are more difficult to install than three-tab shingles due to their thicker construction and more complex design. This can result in higher labor costs for installation.
- Energy efficiency: Architectural shingles are more energy-efficient than three-tab shingles because they are thicker and have more insulation. This can result in lower heating and cooling costs for homeowners.
While both architectural shingles and three-tab shingles are made of asphalt and serve as durable roofing materials, architectural shingles have a more dimensional appearance, are more durable and energy-efficient, but are more expensive and harder to install. Three-tab shingles have a flatter, more uniform appearance, are less expensive, and easier to install, but they are not as durable and energy-efficient as architectural shingles.
