Features of A 3-Tab Asphalt Shingles Roof

by Kevin Smith Author

Replacing your roof is a big investment. It isn’t something you want to do more than once while you own your home. In the current construction market there are many choices with respect to the types of materials you many choose to protect your roof. One of the most historic and trusted is the shingle. Yet, even shingles come in all types and styles. Learn about the features and benefits of the 3-tab asphalt shingle, then protect your home and family for years to come.


“How much is this going to cost me?” is typically the first question out of homeowners when they are told their roof needs replacing. Compared to the many other roofing options across the market, asphalt shingles are the most cost effective option. 3-tab asphalt shingles in Atlanta also offer up to seventeen years of solid protection to your home. Laminated and premium shingles cost a bit more, in that order, but offer features to match their higher rate. 


If your budget meets the base cost of asphalt shingles it doesn’t mean you have to give up stylistic choice. They come in a variety of modern colors to match any home and décor. Moreover, you can choose between 3-tab, laminated (also known as architectural), and premium.

·         3-tab lasts up to 25 years & can withstand winds up to 70 mph

·         Laminated lasts up to 50 years & can withstand winds up to 130 mph

·         Premium offers a limited lifetime warranty & can withstand winds up to 110 mph

Your choice will depend on a variety of factors, including where you live, the typical weather patterns, your budget, and the aesthetic you want on your home.


Although three manufacturers jump to the top of any google search on asphalt shingles, it is important to consider that who makes the shingles is often less important than the qualifications of the people installing your new roof. Be sure to do your homework, both online and in your community. Keep an open mind and call around for at least three quotes. Ask each company what product they recommend and why and see if it matches your opinion. Then, stay in communication with the company as they complete the job. 

Replacing your roof is a job you want done right the first time. Choose a style of 3-tab asphalt shingles in Atlanta and know you and your family will be well protected for years to come.
