Different Types of Asphalt Roofing Shingles

Last updated 6 years ago

Salt Lake City roofs experience a wide range of temperatures and weather, so the shingles that cover your home or business are very important. Consider the following types of asphalt roofing shingles if your roofing is ready for an upgrade: 

  • 3-Tab Basics (Good): These shingles are a great option for homeowners purchasing their first roof. Three-tab shingles are affordable, attractive and able to stand up to numerous types of weather. GAF’s Marquis® WeatherMax® three-tab shingles, for example, are specifically designed to handle year-round climate conditions. Three-tab shingles are also popular for their versatility—you can order GAF’s Royal Sovereign® three-tab shingles in several colors and styles. From Autumn Brown to Summer Sage, there’s a perfect GAF three-tab shingle style for every home.
  • Architectural Upgrades (Better): Architectural shingles offer numerous advantages over three-tab options. Increased durability, showcased through GAF’s Timberline Shingles series, is one of the major draws of architectural shingles. In fact, these beautiful roofing products come with a lifetime warranty. Your home may also benefit from specialty architectural shingles—Energy Star-rated and impact-resistant options can help save your household money on energy and repairs.  In addition, all architectural shingles also offer noticeable visual improvement over their three-tab counterparts. If you’re searching for the perfect mix of cost and quality then architectural shingles are right for your home.
  • Designer Enhancements (Best): Homeowners who are interested in the best of the best should learn about GAF’s Lifetime Designer Shingles. These roof materials offer all the long-term protection of architectural shingles with a huge boost to visual appeal. GAF’s Ultra-Premium products perfectly mimic the look of wood and slate materials. You should also consider designer shingles if you’re interested in selling your home. These aesthetically pleasing upgrades will provide immense curb appeal for your home.
