Architectural Shingles: An Exceptional Roofing Option

Architectural Shingles: An Exceptional Roofing Option

Asphalt shingles come in two types: three-tab shingles and architectural shingles. While three-tab shingles are a more economical option, many homeowners still opt for architectural shingles because of their top-notch features. Let MASCON INC., your trusted roofing contractor, show you why they are the best choice:

Exceptional Roofing Option

They Offer Superior Performance

Architectural shingles are less vulnerable to blow-offs because they weigh around 50% more than their three-tab counterparts. In fact, they are rated to resist up to 130 mph wind speeds. They also have excellent toughness, flexibility and granule adhesion, which is why they can keep your home safe and protected throughout the seasons. They can last up to 50 years with minimal maintenance, making them a cost-effective solution for your home.

As a GAF Master Elite™ contractor, MASCON INC. has access to the brand’s top-of-the-line roofing shingles. We recommend the Timberline® Cool Series® shingles to enhance your home’s comfort levels and energy efficiency. We also offer the ArmorShield™ shingles to achieve your optimum protection against heavy impacts.

They Have a Dimensional Appearance

Three-tab shingles are flat and distinct, and have the same shape. On the other hand, architectural shingles come in a wide range of sizes, shapes and profiles, which include an additional laminated layer. They can even mimic the authentic look of slate, tile and cedar shakes. These qualities create a deeper, dimensional look that provides your home a sophisticated appeal.

They Are Backed by Stronger Warranties

Architectural shingles exhibit first-rate quality, which is why they have more extensive warranties than three-tab shingles. Since we carry the highest designation from GAF, we can back your new roof with the Golden Pledge® warranty. This includes 50-year coverage on material defects and 25-year coverage on workmanship, giving you the best value for your money.
