Architectural Shingles are made with multiple layers of asphalt material. This gives architectural shingle roofs a three-dimensional look. This makes it also known as laminated, or dimensional shingles. They are also considered high end asphalt shingles due to their textured and distinctive look.

These architectural shingles are the highest quality shingles, because they are heavier without the need of extra support under the roof. They are made with a heavy mat base which is made from organic materials, with little asphalt added. The back of each shingle is coated with special materials, and granules are added to the top layer.


Architectural Shingles can last anywhere from 30 – 50 years, sometimes even more than that. The minerals which are added to the asphalt help make it strong and flexible, making it stand up to extreme temperatures and weather conditions. Some brands of architectural shingles can even be purchased with a lifetime warranty! Even though these architectural design shingles are a little more expensive, they will sometimes last twice as long than the 3-tab shingles and survive hurricane like winds and thunderstorms.
