One of the most popular roofs on the market is 3-tab shingles. As the name indicates, 3-tab shingles are made with three tabs, each 12 inches in width. They are made from asphalt and can usually last between 12 to 15 years when installed correctly by an experienced roofer like Nations Choice Windows.
Are 3-Tab Shingles Right for You?
When it comes to roofing, 3-tab roofing shingles don’t last as long as most other materials, including architectural shingles (which are also made from asphalt, but with asphalt strips as opposed to tabs). Yet despite not lasting as long, 3-tab shingles are often the ideal choice for customers who are on a budget since they cost less than almost any other type of roofing.
And just because they’re a budget option doesn’t mean that 3-tab shingles aren’t attractive. In fact, asphalt shingles are some of the most beautiful roofs on the market. Three-tab singles can withstand winds up to 60 miles per hour, which means they work well for customers who live in areas that don’t experience a lot of severe weather.
