Great improvements to the asphalt shingle have been made, resulting in a more durable product know as laminated shingles. Laminate shingles are also known as “dimensional” or “architectural” shingles.
Laminate shingles are also made of asphalt but differ from the “three tab” shingle in design. They were designed to add character, color and depth to the roof aesthetics. They are made of multiple staggered layers of material, with a range of durability, typically 15 to 50 years. Laminate shingles are thicker and heavier than “three tab” shingles, thus are more resistant to wind. From a distance, some of the high grade (high quality) laminated shingles have the look of an expensive slate or shake material, by incorporating angled or rounded tabs, shadow lines and variant color patterns.
Asphalt shingles come in a variety of colors and styles. Individual shingles may be replaced if damaged. An additional advantage of asphalt shingles is that in certain circumstances, they can be installed over an existing roof of asphalt shingles, eliminating the need to remove the old roof.
