Asphalt Shingle Roofing by Marquez Roofing
Asphalt Shingle Roofing refers to a specific type of roofing material, the asphalt shingle. Asphalt shingles are commonly made from layers of asphalt, sometimes around a fiberglass core with ceramic granules sprinkled on the asphalt. The industry standard is called a three-tab shingle. Three-tab shingles usually have a 20 to 25-year warranty. There are many manufacturers of three-tab shingles. We often use GAF or Owens Corning. It really depends on the customer.
Architectural Asphalt Shingle Roofing
Another type of asphalt shingles is the architectural. This shingle usually has a limited lifetime warranty and is made much thicker that the standard three tab. Architectural asphalt shingles are considered a premium grade roofing material. Architectural shingles are a premium grade of asphalt shingle roofing. They are thicker and have a distinctive, textured appearance. They are sometimes called dimensional or laminate shingles, and were introduced in the 1970s in an effort by manufacturers to create a higher-end product.
