Also known as laminated or dimensional shingles, architectural roofing shingles are among the highest quality roofing products made. Traditionally, they are composed of a heavy fiberglass mat base and ceramic-coated mineral granules that are tightly embedded in carefully refined, water-resistant asphalt. These shingles have taken the place of its "three-tab" predecessor and are the most commonly used roofing material today.
The life span of these roofs heavily depends on where it is located. Most manufactures warranty their roofs for 20-30 years with contingencies around installation and a regularly documented maintenance schedule. Carter Roofing matches the industry standard with the professional guarantee of no leaks for five years on all full architectural installations!
Below are just a few color options from one major manufacturer, but there are many more colors and styles to choose from so you can choose the roof that is perfect for you!
