Asphalt Shingle Lifespans For Houston Roof Replacement

We all want to make the right choices when it comes to home upgrades, and the materials you use for your Houston roof replacement are no exception. Choosing the right shingles for your Houston roofing project can ensure your roof properly withstands damaging weather or the wear and tear that comes with age, thereby making your investment last longer. The best way to make the right choice for your Houston roof replacement is to understand the different types of asphalt shingles and their respective lifespans. Keep reading to learn more about the materials available for your project through our Houston roofing company.

Types of Asphalt Shingles and Their Lifespans

We offer three types of asphalt roof shingles, including:

3-Tab Shingles

These are the least expensive and most common type of shingles, which are composed of a single layer of asphalt with a distinct pattern. While these shingles are easy to maintain and repair, they are also the most likely to need repair or replacement due to their simple composition, which is susceptible to hail, wind, and rain damage. Most warranties for 3-tab asphalt shingles are between 20-30 years. 

Laminate Shingles

These are more durable than 3-tab asphalt shingles because there is a second layer of material, which is fused to the base shingle and increases their thickness, thereby improving their performance. Laminate shingles are quite popular because they increase most manufacturer warranties to between 30-50 years, but don’t cost as much as architectural shingles.

Our Houston Roof Experts Can Install Architectural Shingles, Too 

Architectural shingles are more expensive than the aforementioned options, but their superior protection and appearance are worth the increase in price. These high-end composition shingles are engineered to be thicker and more protective than any other Houston roofing material, which means they often include a manufacturer warranty of 50 years to a lifetime. Our Houston roof experts often encourage customers to consider architectural shingles because, while the upfront cost for your Houston roof replacement will be higher than if you were installing 3-tab or laminate shingles, they pay for themselves over time and with proper maintenance. Since those expenses can add up over time for other types of Houston roofing products, architectural shingles will likely not cost you any additional money after installation.
