We shared with you recently the 3 Reasons to Choose Asphalt Shingle Roofing, which has been the go-to choice of roofing materials for most professional residential roofers for years now. But have you considered the unique appeal and durability of architectural asphalt shingles?
Homeowners work hard to maintain and enhance the curb appeal of their home, especially if they’re considering selling the property. Coupled with elegant siding and attractive decks, a handsome roof can be the icing on the cake for your beautiful home design.
While the standard 3-tab asphalt roof is certainly cost effective and can be quickly installed, an upgrade to architectural shingles can go a long way in enhancing the look and performance of your home’s roof.
- Architectural shingles generally last 10-20 years longer than traditional 3-tab roofs (as reflected by manufacturer warranties, when installed correctly).
- Architectural shingles offer more wind resistance–up to twice as much versus 3-tab shingles–which means less shingle loss and better protection against strong Northeast winds.
- Architectural shingles are constructed and applied in a manner that makes them more durable against weather and the elements. In fact, many homeowners policies may actually give you a discount for upgrading to architectural shingles from standard 3-tab. (Contact your insurance agent to learn more about their premium roofing discounts!)
- Architectural shingles create visual interest for your roof and add value to your home.
