So if you’re planning on re-roofing your home, you can look no further than architectural shingle roofs by Eustis Roofing. It is, after all our specialty.
But what exactly are architectural roofing shingles?
What Exactly Are Architectural Roofing Shingles?
About 40 years ago, improvements to dimensional shingles resulted in the formation of new, high-grade asphalt roofing that was not only durable but beautiful looking. This improvement became known as architectural shingles.
Commonly known as laminated or dimensional shingles, this type of roofing is durable—very durable. The material, itself, is composed of a fiberglass base and a ceramic coating that creates a water-resistant and durable asphalt.
Though architectural roofing shingles vary in size and shape, they are always extraordinarily strong. Unlike their counterparts, 3-tab, they are aesthetically appealing.
Since they are designed to cast more distinct lines, they look more like traditional roofing (or wood shingles). This means that architectural shingles create a more natural look. Because of their strength, they come with a longer warranty. These shingles do not need replacing for some time, usually 20-30 years.
Architectural Shingle Roofs Vs. 3 Tabs
The 3-Tab shingle installations have become outdated because they do not support sufficient wind loads. And for Florida, you need a shingle that can support sufficient wind loads.
Architectural shingle roofs have a 130 mph wind load with the 3 Tabs falling behind at only 70 mph. That’s the difference between a tropical storm and a category 4 hurricane.
If strength is what you’re looking for, then architectural shingle roofs beat 3 Tabs by categories.
We have installed many roof shingle Manufacturers’ materials for many years and have found CertainTeed Landmark and CertainTeed Landmark PRO to be a strong contender in quality and value when it comes to architectural shingle roofing.
