Grace Roofing and Construction Compares 3 Tab vs Architectural Shingles in New Blog Post

Grace Roofing and Construction LLC, a Winston Salem roofing company, has compared 3 tab vs architectural shingles as roofing materials in a new blog post. They are also proud to announce that they have once again received a five-star review from a satisfied customer. Architectural shingles and 3 tab shingles are the two primary styles to consider when planning to use asphalt shingles as roofing material. Comparing the two styles is relevant because more than 75 percent of residential roofs use asphalt shingles.

The 3 tab shingles are actually the entry-level roofing solutions for homes in North Carolina that homeowners can depend on. Each one-piece, single layer 3 tab shingle is usually made from durable fiberglass that is coated with mineral asphalt granules. These shingles are lightweight but they are capable of withstanding wind uplift of up to 70 mph. Furthermore, the 3 tab shingles have a life span of up to 20 years and they provide the home with a clean and streamlined appearance. Each shingle has three tabs that are used to notch into the next row of tiles. Unfortunately, it is this 3 tab notching system that makes these shingles vulnerable to blow-off caused by strong winds during bad weather.

3 Tab VS Architectural Shingles

Meanwhile, architectural shingles offer a mid-level roofing solution for the home. These shingles provide the home with a high-quality three-dimensional aesthetic, at an affordable price. In addition, architectural shingles can be made to look like natural wood or slate, and they can withstand up to 130 mph of wind uplift. However, because of the materials used in the fabrication of architectural shingles, they are often provided with limited warranties of up to 50 years. In the comparison, architectural shingles had the advantage over 3 tab shingles, with regards to style, versatility, and durability. However, 3 tab shingles are less costly and the ultimate choice may come down to the homeowner’s taste and budget. And the choice of an experienced roofing contractor, like Grace Roofing, is key to making the proper choice.

In the latest five-star review received by Grace Roofing, Jenkins C. said, “Very happy I called this company! They responded extremely fast, friendly customer service. Thank you guys for fixing my roof.” Currently, the roofing contractor has an overall rating of 4.9 stars on Google, which means that virtually all of their Winston Salem roofing reviews have been five-star reviews.
