3-Tab Roof Shingles Explained

Why Choose Three-Tab Roof Shingles?
The main reason most property owners choose this variety of roofing is their budget. The 3-tab design is generally less expensive than variegated architectural shingles and other roof materials. The material is also thinner overall, which adds to the lower initial price. It is an immediate cost savings that can help landlords get into profit more quickly and help homeowners have a safe and leak free house without breaking the bank.
Those who enjoy a clean, minimalistic style to their home can also appreciate 3-tab roof shingles for their even appearance. The entire roof will be a single color without variation and ever tile the same size and shape. Since these shingles come in a variety of hues, it is easy for the property owner to get the right look even without spending a lot of money.
