Architectural Shingles for Decatur area Homeowners

Architectural shingles is a term used to describe any shingle other than the traditional 3-tab shingle that has traditionally dominated the market. When most people use the term, they are referring to the 30-year laminate shingle recently made popular by many homeowners. There are many benefits to architectural shingles, but there are also a few things that you should know in order to be 100% informed.


What you should know about architectural shingles

All architectural shingles carry a Limited Lifetime Warranty. Exactly what “limited” means varies from manufacturer to manufacturer.

Many homeowners now choose this shingle over the traditional 3-tab, 25-year shingle for 3 reasons:

  • The first reason is price point. Architectural shingles are now close in price to 3-tab, generally around 10% more for the complete job. However, due to the many benefits architectural shingles provide, many homeowners now consider it well worth the extra investment.
  • The second reason is the lifetime warranty versus the 25-year warranty. Many homeowners purchase their houses with the intent to live there for more than 25 years, and the lifetime warranty provided by architectural shingles protects the homeowner from paying for unnecessary roofing repairs.
  • The third reason is that architectural shingles greatly enhance the appearance of your home and add value to the home, as well. They help your home stand out from the crowd, thus creating a unique selling feature should you ever wish to put your house on the market.
