Architectural Shingles vs 3-Tab

Many homeowners prefer architectural shingles over 3-tab shingles because of their higher quality and unique properties. Architectural shingles are more durable and long-lasting than 3-tab shingles. They have a lifespan of 20 to 30 years while 3-tab shingles have a lifespan closer to 10 to 15 years. Architectural shingles are also called "dimensional shingles" because they provide a more layered and aesthetically interesting look. They can even be engineered to imitate the styles of other roofing materials like wood shakes or slate. In terms of value, they are more expensive than 3-tab shingles, but they come with better warranties, last longer, and are often easier to install.

Can You Install Architectural Shingles Over 3-Tab?

This is a tricky question. The technical answer is yes. But most roofers are going to recommend that you perform a tear off. One reason for this is that old shingles can prevent new shingles from laying flat. This can make a roof more vulnerable to leaks if the architectural shingles aren't adhering correctly to the roof. The waves or bumps that can result are also unsightly and could harm your curb appeal. There are also other reasons to be cautious about performing an overlay like voiding your warranty and shortening the shingles lifespan due to heat buildup. We recommend having a thoughtful conversation with a professional roofer before overlaying old shingles with architectural shingles.

Peace of mind knowing you obtained your roof at the lowest investment possible.

Not only do you receive a state of the art roof built by highly skilled craftsmen, you also receive peace of mind knowing you obtain your roof at the lowest investment possible. If prior to the installation of your new roof you discover a comparable roof for less money than the one we constructed for your home, we will pay you the difference, plus a bonus. All we ask is the comparison be “apples-to-apples.”

The price you are quoted is the price you will pay, guaranteed.

We DO NOT give estimates! The price you are given is the price that you will pay, guaranteed. If, during the installation of your roof we discover that there is additional work needed to install the roof properly that we didn’t catch during our inspection, we will repair or replace it free of charge. We understand that you budget for a home improvement project based on the numbers given to you by contractors and we believe that those numbers should be honored.

Should a manufacturer refuse to honor their warranty, we accept personal responsibility at NO CHARGE.

When a roof fails that is still under manufacturer's warranty, often the homeowner is caught in the middle of a “Civil War” between the manufacturer and the contractor. The contractor blames the roofing manufacturer’s product for the failure, and the manufacturer blames the contractor for the faulty installation. This standoff often leaves the homeowner out in the rain. Our Presidential Accountability states that should a manufacturer make excuses and refuse to honor their warranty, we will accept personal responsibility and repair your roof at no charge to you for the term of your agreement.

We will make any necessary repairs free for as long as you live in your home.

Your roof will be constructed by certified installers using premium materials. Excluding acts of God, your roof will not falter from normal, everyday exposure. In the unlikely event your roof encounters any workmanship challenges, we will make any necessary repairs absolutely free for as long as you live in your home. You will never roof again.

Not completely satisfied after 365 days? We’ll correct the problem or your money back, guaranteed.

We strive to be the most professional and reliable roofing company on the planet and we are confident in our ability to make you a satisfied customer that we offer the Roof Assurance Guarantee. We will give you 365 days to “test drive” your new roof. If, after the first 365 days you are not completely satisfied with the customer service or the performance of the roof, we will correct the problem. If that still doesn’t make you comfortable with your decision just give us a call and we will remove the roof and then refund 100% of your investment.
