Dimensional Shingles Provide Enhanced Durability & Rich, Visual Interest
Architectural shingles are also known as Dimensional Shingles, Laminate Shingles and 3D Shingles.
Recently, there has been a noticeable increase in the popularity of architectural shingles.
Homeowners, remodelers and builders are all choosing architectural shingles for their enhanced durability and aesthetic appeal.
Architectural shingles provide a deep, textured look that offers rich visual interest.
The shingles’ durability, paired with its aesthetics, means homes that have architectural shingles installed typically see a noticeable increase in resale value.
However, economy-priced homes typically cannot recover the higher cost of architectural shingles. In these cases, another option, such as 3 tab shingles may be a better roofing solution.
Architectural shingle prices are higher because they are thicker, heavier and more durable than other shingles.
They have great resistance to curling, hail and wind. In fact, they can typically withstand winds ranging from 80 to 130 mph.
Architectural shingles usually come with 30 year to lifetime warranties.
Although the price higher than some other options, the long-lasting benefits far outweigh the initial up-front cost.
Our roofers offer a variety of architectural shingle colors, sizes, shapes and patterns to perfectly compliment your home.
Over the past 5 years, we’ve seen the most requests for these shingles come from areas like Waukesha, Oconomowoc, Hartland, Delafield, New Berlin and Brookfield, WI.
