Architectural Roof Shingles
Serving Vancouver WA and Portland OR
The majority of residential properties in North America have architectural asphalt roof shingles these days. They have been popular for many years and come in a wide variety of colors and styles to suit any particular taste. In years past, shingles that looked flat were more popular, such as the three-tab roof shingles, but the architectural version has surged in popularity.
What Makes a Roof Shingle Architectural?
Architectural roofing is also called dimensional, and it is simple to understand why when you look at a house with it installed. Although each shingle is perfectly flat, the finished appearance appears to have three-dimensional shingles with shadows and highlights. This gives any residential or commercial roof a more impressive style than flat three-tab roof shingles.

Why Choose Architectural Roof Shingles for Your Home
The popularity of this style of roofing material makes it easy to find the perfect option for you at a reasonable price. They come in a vast array of colors from pale beige tones to deep gray and even variegated blue slate tones or mossy green.
Some architectural roof shingles are designed to look precisely like natural slate or wood shake roofs. You get the style you want without the expense or the need for regular maintenance.
Asphalt shingles last longer than other options as well. Each piece is thicker than standard flat shingles and has more granules embedded to give that three-dimensional look homeowners want. The thickness makes them a bit heavier, which helps prevent lifting or gaping during windstorms.
Reasonable cost, sturdy protection, and a vast selection of colors, shapes, and styles make architectural roof shingles an excellent and popular choice for many property owners.
