What are Architectural Shingles?

Q.  How do laminated or “architectural” roof shingles differ from standard three-tab asphalt shingles?

 

A.  Laminated asphalt shingles, also called three-dimensional shingles or architectural shingles, have more than one layer of tabs to create extra thickness. This creates visual depth on a roof for a more customized look. The advantages of the extra layers are longevity, wind resistance and even increase in hail resistance. Architectural shingles are typically tested to withstand 70-mph winds, with some products tested up to 90 mph. Standard three-tab shingles are tested to 60 mph.
