What are architectural shingles

When it comes to buying roofing materials at a wholesale store, it is vital that you know everything you need to know to choose the ideal type of shingle for the project you need to carry out. This, of course, is no easy task, as shingles can vary in material, quality, colors and cost.

If you know exactly what you are looking for, this variety will not be a problem for you to carry out your roofing project.

As a general rule, if you don’t want to end up with a poor quality roof, you will have to take your investment in shingles very seriously and get the best quality products. That’s where we have you covered, as the quality of the products we have in stock has made us one of the best roofing suppliers in Tampa.

What are architectural shingles?

The most characteristic feature of architectural shingles is that they are made of two laminated layers and have a dimensional rather than flat shape, which confers greater durability than the common shingles we are used to seeing on low-budget projects. 

Architectural shingles are also particularly heavier than other types of shingles. And while that may seem like a problem at first glance, it is actually the main advantage of this product and the secret to its durability and resistance to unforgiving weather conditions.

In terms of customization, you can find these shingles in different colors and finishes to match the architectural style that predominates in your project.

Advantages of using the best architectural shingles for roofing projects

As we mentioned, this type of shingles is manufactured in such a way that the product achieves levels of durability that cannot be found in other shingles. But that is not its only advantage. There are a number of benefits derived from the durability of architectural shingles. let’s see:

Best value for money

Although architectural shingles are initially more expensive than regular 3-tab shingles, in the long run you will be saving on energy and enjoy a longer life of your shingles. 

Something else you can save on is warranties and replacements, as architectural shingles generally have warranties that extend up to 30 years, even up to 50 years with some manufacturers. Be sure to ask about the warranty when you are visiting roofing materials stores near you.

In addition, the return on your investment is greater when you choose architectural shingles, not only because of the quality material itself, but because of the value it adds to your property.

Lower maintenance costs on your roof

The durability of architectural shingles comes with the added benefit of requiring fewer periodic inspections. This type of shingles allows you to say goodbye to the most common problems that many newly installed roofs have such as loose shingles or leaks.
