Dimensional vs 3-Tab
Which shingle should you choose? Architectural, also know as dimensional, and 3-Tab’s are two different types of asphalt shingles used in residential and commercial roofing. They are by far the most commonly used due to their versatility, cost, and availability. As far as choosing one, professionals tend to lean towards the dimensional shingle for a few reasons; They are a heavier shingle, therefore less affected by the wind, and also much easier to install than the 3-Tab. They also will give your roof a very unique appearance with the dimension that they add! In the end, though, you can’t go wrong with either one.
