Three-Tab Shingle Roofs – No More
Exchanging Three-Tab Shingles for Superior Products in Colorado Springs
Three-tab asphalt shingles are one of the most common residential roofing systems in Colorado Springs – common doesn’t always mean good, though. Through the late 1980s three-tab asphalt shingles were the most prevalent asphalt shingle roofing system on the market as an affordable and economical option for homeowners. While three-tab shingles were an excellent choice in their prime, they can no longer compete with the superior asphalt shingle options available, today.

Disadvantages of Three-Tab Shingle Roofs
While many manufacturers advertise three-tab shingles as having a 20 year lifespan the truth of the matter is quite different. With exposure to harsh weather and the elements most three-tab shingles will only last 10-15 years.
Three-tab shingles just can’t stand up to the greater durability of architectural and luxury shingles. They’re thinner and lighter which makes them very susceptible to wind and impact damage. This also means that even with the best care and maintenance your roof will likely be in need of regular repairs that wouldn’t be needed with other asphalt shingle types.
There’s no arguing denying it: three-tab shingles are boring to look at. They’re specifically made to lay flat and have a completely uniform appearance. Architectural shingles are created to have more dimension and give your roof a higher level of curb appeal while luxury shingles are made to mimic the look of higher-end roofing materials like cedar and slate.
Because they lack in quality, three-tab shingles will not add any value to your home, even if your roof is brand new. Higher quality shingles will add value to your home and give you a better return on investment than three-tab shingles.
