3 Tab Asphalt Shingles
3-tab asphalt singles get their name from the three cut tabs at the bottom of each shingle. These shingles are flat and have a uniform size, and the tabs are used to fit the shingles together in a flat single layer. These shingles are easy to install and repair, are available in many styles, patterns, and colors using a roof shingle color selector, and are some of the most affordable shingles available today.
Architectural shingles are a beautiful roofing material designed specifically to add style to a home. They are high-quality and are often three times as thick as a standard 3-tab asphalt shingle. They are still made out of the same material as other asphalt shingle roofs, but they are made to match or enhance the architectural design of a home, while also providing a durable, long-lasting roofing solution.
Metal Roof Shingles
metal roof shingle roof might look like other types of roofing materials, but they add the industrial strength of metal to the shingles. They last much longer than other types of roofing, sometimes up to 50 years, and are some of the most energy-efficient roofing materials.They are 100% recyclable at the end of their lifespan, and they are better suited for areas with high winds and hail.
Wood Shingled Roofs
Wood shingles are a traditional yet durable roofing material. They are made from thin pieces of treated hardwoods like pine, cedar, or spruce which are naturally resistant to water, insects, mold, and UV rays. They are excellent natural insulators and are both environmentally friendly and attractive. However, depending on where you live in California, they could be prohibited, and they are totally banned in the City of Los Angeles.
Solar shingles, also known as photovoltaic shingles, are solar cells that look like normal roofing shingles, but they can generate electricity from the sun. They can be installed over your existing roof or as the roofing material themselves.
They are naturally durable, fire-resistant, and have more aesthetic appeal than roof-mounted solar panels. They generate electricity for your home throughout the day, lowering your energy bills. The Inflation Reduction Act of August 2022 now gives a 30% enhanced tax credit off the cost of a solar shingle roof installation.
Rubber Roof Shingles

They require less maintenance than other roof shingles and are more resistant to heavy rain or wind than other types of roofs. These roofs are available in several attractive styles, and their black color provides excellent protection against UV radiation.
Shingle Roof FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
What is a shingle roof?
A shingle roof is a type of roofing consisting of overlapping shingles. Shingles are flat pieces of asphalt, asphalt composite, clay, or wood layered to cover the roof. They are installed starting at the base of the roof up and overlap to provide maximum coverage and protection from the elements. There are several types of shingles, and almost all are made with an asphalt base mixed with other materials to give the shingle greater strength, durability, and longevity.
How much do shingle roofs cost for a roof?
The cost of a shingle roof will depend on what type of shingle you choose but on average a shingle roof costs between $4,000-$5,500 for a 1,000 square foot roof, or $4 to $5.50 per square foot. While materials like clay tiles tend to cost more than asphalt, they provide longer-lasting resistance to the elements, resulting in a more cost-effective roof solution long-term.
How long do asphalt shingles last?
The average lifespan of an asphalt roof shingle is between 15 and 30 years. The factors determining how long it lasts will be what kind of shingle it is, the weather and climate where you live, and how well the shingle was installed in the first place. If you choose high-quality shingles and only use qualified professional roofers, your shingles will last longer.
How long does the average asphalt shingle roof last?
The average asphalt shingle roof will last between 15-30 years. As with individual shingles, the lifespan of your asphalt shingle roof depends on how well the roof was installed, the quality and materials of the shingles themselves, and the weather and climate where you live. In Southern California, well-installed quality roofs tend to last longer as the climate is milder than in other parts of the country.
What are the disadvantages of asphalt shingles?
While asphalt shingles are the country’s most popular roofing material, they have drawbacks. They do not last as long as other roofing options like metal roofs or clay tiles which often last twice as long. Shingles can also be damaged by high winds, which can be an issue if you live in an area prone to inclement weather. Asphalt shingles are not the most energy-efficient roofing material, with their asphalt base absorbing a lot of solar heat while not insulating the home as much as other materials.
What is the most common damage done to asphalt shingles?
The most common types of damage done to asphalt shingles include blistering, which happens when pockets of moisture build up below the shingles. Mold, mildew, and algae build up if the roof cannot dry properly. Curling and cracking can occur with age and generally mean it’s time to replace the shingles.
