Three-Tab shingles have several benefits, but many select this kind of shingle just for the cost. These shingles are easily obtained and are available in almost every color or shade in order to blend with the siding and trim of your home. The majority of 3-Tab asphalt shingles carry a warranty of 20 or 30 years. Generally there are shed shingles which are performance rated at 15 years.
Climate The climate of your physical location plays a factor in what roofing material may be used. When looking at asphalt shingles, there are specialized "Cool Roof" or "Cool Series" shingles that are used in warm climate locations. These shingles reflect heat from the house instead of absorbing it into the structure. In a cold climate location, these shingles will not provide any benefit and in fact will increase heat loss and also increase heating costs. Normal asphalt or composite shingles work great in colder climates because they absorb heat and act as an additional layer of insulation and protection. When looking at your roofing project, keep in mind insulation and ventilation in the attic space as part of the whole project. A well sealed, insulated and vented attic space greatly impacts the overall efficiency of the roof.
Manufacturers are constantly developing new underlayment technology. Newer synthetic underlayment further increases the effectiveness, ease & safety to install and increases longevity. Some manufacturers have developed organic and green underlayment products.
A contractor will choose the best type of underlayment for your roof replacement based on the type of roof and climate in which you live. If you have any questions regarding their choice, they are the best resource for your specific project.
