About Designer Shingles
Designer shingles are by far the most fancy, high quality, and expensive asphalt shingles on the market. The designer shingles are very similar to architectural in the fact that they are thicker/heavier which helps them last a lot longer than 3-tab shingles. Another similarity is their visual appeal. One of the main differences between designer shingles and architectural shingles is their shapes. Designer shingles vary in shape. Some designer shingles have square tabs, diamonds, circular tabs, and so forth.
Designer Shingle Warranties
Designer shingles are the most common shingle to have “Lifetime” warranties, which some see as simply an advertising gimmick. Other warranties common are 30, 35, 40, & 50 year warranties.
About Architectural Shingles
Architectural shingles or A.K.A dimensional or laminated shingles are a higher quality of shingle that not only lasts longer but looks better. If you are looking at your roof, it is really obvious if you have architectural shingles vs 3-tab shingles. Architectural shingles are becoming the shingle of choice and are fast replacing the traditional 3-tab shingles.
Benefits of these types of shingles are that they are thicker, which gives them a longer life span, they come in more colors, and raise the value or help maintain the value of the home.
Architectural Shingle Warranties
These types of shingles have 30, 35, 40 and 50 year warranties. Thanks to their construction and thickness these shingles can have a longer manufacturer warranty vs 3-tab shingles.
About 3-Tab Shingles
The three-tab shingle is the most basic asphalt shingle available. In fact, this shingle used to be the only shingle available for homeowners to put on their roofs. The shingle itself is easily distinguishable by its 3 distinct rectangular sections.
3-Tab Shingle Warranties
Three tab shingles generally come with a maximum 25 year warranty. However, there are a few brands out there that sell a 30 year 3-tab shingle.

Why is it important to replace your roof?
Because your biggest asset is your home, one of the most important investments that a homeowner can make is the purchase of a new roof. A roof is literally your protection from the elements, and if untreated, roof damage can create costly degredation to interior and exterior surfaces. In addition, a new roof can improve your home's design, create greater curb appeal, and provide you with durable protection.
There are many problems that arise from an aging roof. Of course, if a disaster strikes and some or all of your roof is compromised, HANDAL'S ROOFING can quickly complete repairs to have you safe and dry in days. Further, if there is inadequate protection along the edge of the roof, moisture seepage and termite damage can cause rot and infestation. In the humid climate, we often see algea growth that has rotted underlayment, decaying the decking and compromising the stability of the roof. Missing, buckling, or curling shingles combined with damaged flashing will also provide holes for leaks. Experts estimate that more than 90% of roofing leaks occur around leaky, inadequate, or deteriorated flashing. Any one of these problems can lead to water damage in your house, which only intensifies the problem and lowers the value of your home.
Replacing a roof can be expensive, but a repair job can often cost you more than you save. However, HANDAL'S ROOFING will work with your insurance company to get you a new roof at little or no direct cost to you, the homeowner.
