Additionally, they have a more dimensional look to them much like a wooden shake or a tile has dimension. You could conceivably get the benefits of an asphalt shingle roof, which is fairly low-maintenance, with the look of a cedar shake roof with an architectural shingle.
3-tab Shingles (25 YEARS SHINGLES)
Traditional shingles are the 3-tab variety. They are the shingles people most often associate with asphalt roofing. They come in a single tab shape, even though they are available in a variety of colors. In addition, 3-tab shingles lie flat to the roof decking and create a clean shape with neat-looking lines on your roof.
