Architectural shingles are also tough, typically lasting for at least 20 years when properly maintained. Beyond that, they also offer superior wind and hail resistance over 3-tab shingles. This means that when severe storms hit Northern Virginia, your architectural shingles aren’t as likely to suffer from blow-offs and leaks.
While more expensive than 3-tab shingles, architectural shingles are worth the investment due to their aesthetics and weather resistance. Nations Choice Windows can help you choose the right roof replacement material for you during our initial free consultation.
3-Tab vs. Architectural Shingles
While 3-tab shingles are less expensive, they don’t offer the same weather resistance as architectural shingles. Plus, 3-tab shingles don’t typically include the lifetime warranties that come with architectural shingles. As mentioned previously, however, the biggest upside of three-tab shingles is they tend to be a lot less expensive.
Many homeowners prefer the look of architectural shingles to the 3-tab option since architectural shingles create a more dimensional, visually interesting look. Architectural shingles are even required by some HOAs.
