3-tab shingles have some advantages over architectural shingles,the foremost being the price. 3-tab shingles are less expensive and they come in a large variety of color choices. One of the primary disadvantages of 3-tab shingles stems from the design. They lay flat on the roof that any inconsistencies in the roof deck will show right through to your finished roof.
Architectural shingles provide a home with a more customized appearance because of their shape and depth. Although they are asphalt shingles they have the appearance of other roofing materials. Architectural shingles contain multiple layers, are heavier and, due to their weight, offer more installation and protection from wind. Their multilayer construction also makes them more durable so they last longer and often carry a warranty.
