What Are Architectural Shingles and What Makes Them Great?

Architectural Shingles

Architectural shingles have a distinctive three-dimensional appearance that gives them depth. Their shadow lines will make your roof look fantastic once installed. Architectural shingles also come in many different colors and designs to complement any kind of home style. Unlike typical 3-tab shingles, architectural shingles have an old-fashioned charm. The shingle tabs on architectural shingles also have various sizes and shapes to further give them a dimensional look.

Architectural shingles are also tougher and they last longer than 3-tab shingles. They are thicker and some architectural shingle products can weigh up to 50% more than 3-tab shingles. That’s why architectural shingles are rated to resist strong winds of up to 110-130 mph. As an experienced roofing and siding contractor, we install architectural shingles from trustworthy manufacturers like GAF. GAF architectural shingles are manufactured using Advanced Protection® Technology for even better performance.

Advanced Protection Technology

GAF’s Advanced Protection Technology makes their products tougher and more durable than typical shingles. All of their architectural shingle products pass the roofing industry’s toughest wind resistance tests: ASTM D7158, Class H (150 mph) and ASTM D3161, Class F (110 mph). They also passed AC438, which measures the long-term weather performance of a shingle. Lastly, GAF shingles are optimized to help the environment. They can be recycled at the end of their service life.
