Choosing the right roof for your home is a big decision. At Performance Exteriors & Contracting, we can help guide you through the process of choosing what will work best for your home. Here, we break down the two most popular options: 3-Tab Shingles and Architectural Shingles.

Leading with Architectural Shingles for Top Performance and Warranties

We prioritize offering our customers the best possible value. That’s why we lead with architectural shingles. While they may have a higher upfront cost, architectural shingles provide significant advantages that translate to long-term savings and peace of mind:

Unmatched Durability

Architectural shingles boast a lifespan of 18+ years, often lasting up to 50 years! This is thanks to their thicker material composition and higher-quality asphalt, minimizing the need for replacements throughout the years.

Superior Wind Resistance

They can handle strong winds, typically up to 120 mph, making them ideal for harsher climates. This translates to fewer repairs and potential insurance claim denials due to weather damage.

Leading Manufacturer Warranties

Many manufacturers offer extended warranties on architectural shingles, providing additional financial protection for your investment.

We Understand Budgetary Concerns

We understand that affordability is a major consideration. While 3-Tab shingles are initially cheaper, keep in mind:

Shorter Lifespan 

They typically last 7-ish years, with a maximum lifespan of 20 years under ideal conditions. This means more frequent replacements, leading to higher overall costs over time.

Limited Availability and Potential Discontinuation

Manufacturers are phasing out 3-tab shingle production, leading to a decline in design options and potential challenges with color matching for future repairs.

The Right Choice for Your Home

The best shingle for your home depends on your priorities. Our experts will consider your budget, climate, and aesthetic preferences to recommend the perfect asphalt shingle option for you.
