Among the most popular roofing options in the country, especially for residences and other buildings with pitched roofs are asphalt and laminate shingles.  Asphalt shingles also known as “three tab” are flat and consist of three rectangular “tabs” per shingle. They are reinforced with a fiberglass mat and typically carry up to a 25 year warranty.  Laminate also known as architectural or dimensional shingles consist of multiple layers of different shapes and sizes giving them a dimensional appearance. Laminate shingles have a variety of options and styles that add more color and depth to your roof system. They are also thicker and heavier than regular asphalt shingles, adding to their durability and lifespan.
