Difference between Three-tab Roof Shingles and Architectural Shingles
Q: What is the difference between three-tab roof shingles and “architectural” shingles?
A: In roofing, the term “architectural” generally means the shingle has a three-dimensional design and construction. A true architectural shingle will have more than one thickness to provide enhanced aesthetic appeal. The dimensional design creates a shadow line that gives the roof the appearance of slate or wood shake.
