Fiberglass Asphalt shingles are made with a base mat of glass reinforcing fiber then saturated with asphalt containing mineral fillers to make it waterproof. Both types of Asphalt shingles are coated on top with ceramic granules to protect against UV rays and minor impacts such as hail, sticks and leaves.
Three styles of Asphalt shingles
The 3-Tab Asphalt Shingle
The most basic in style and least costly are the 3- Tab asphalt shingle. They are thinnest in composition and rated to resist uplifting in 60 to 70mph winds. Most product manufacturers will offer a 20 to 30-year warranty. These cost roughly $20 to $30 per bundle of shingles (material costs only).
Architectural Style Asphalt Shingle
Architectural style asphalt shingle also known as a 3-dimensional asphalt shingle gives a 3-dimensional look to your roof, and some imitate the look of wood or slate shingles. They are thicker in composition, as compared to the basic 3-tab, and rated to resist uplifting in 110 to 130mph winds. Product manufactures usually offer a 30 to 50-year warranty. They cost roughly $35 to $40 per bundle (material costs only). However, they need about 25% more material to cover the same area as 3-Tab shingles.
Premium Style Asphalt Shingle
Premium style asphalt shingles are unique in style and high in cost. Most premium shingles are rated to resist uplifting in 110 mph winds. Product manufactures offer a lifetime warranty which is a different number of years in each state. They cost roughly $45 to $55 per bundle (material costs only). However, they need about 40% more material to cover the same area as 3-Tab shingles.
