Three-Tab Shingle Roofs – No More

Exchanging Three-Tab Shingles for Superior Products in Colorado Springs

Three-Tab Shingle Roofing Experts Colorado Springs, CO

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.

Integrity Roofing and Painting has installed asphalt shingle roofs all over Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas for years, so we know the ins and outs of the materials and are constantly staying up to date with new roofing developments.  That’s why we can’t, in good conscience, repair or install three-tab asphalt shingle roofs.  We believe this is an inferior product and our community deserves better.

If you have a three-tab asphalt shingle roof that’s in need of repair or replacement, give Integrity Roofing and Painting a call, today, to discuss how we can help you upgrade to a superior product and get the most out of your roof.  We provide a comprehensive range of asphalt shingle roofing services, including luxury and architectural shingles from some of the best names in the industry.

Disadvantages of Three-Tab Shingle Roofs


Shorter Lifespan

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.   


Curb Appeal

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. 


Home Value

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.

    Integrity Roofing was efficient in inspecting our roof and getting us a quote. They worked to make sure we had the best quality materials that fit our needs, look, and budget. Jeff and his team showed up on time and worked quickly and efficiently … More to replace our roof. The guys even cleared a path for me to take my dog out in the middle of their work day, taking care to make sure there were no nails in our path. We highly recommend Jeff & the Integrity Roofing team!

    Thank you Carlos & Integrity Roofing for an unparalleled customer service experience; we moved into a new house last spring & needed an expert assessment/certification on our roofing material to get a homeowners insurance discount. … More Carlos got the job done - and fast. He came to our house (right on time), talked through the process, took a sample back to the office, and had our answer before dinner time. His efforts will save us thousands over the years we own this house. Just wish we had called Integrity sooner. Thanks again Carlos & keep up the great work.

    After months of dealing with restoration companies and roofing companies and other services, integrity roofing was finally the company that kept returning our calls! Troy did an amazing job, communicating with me every step of the way, … More and was always available to talk! They were completely transparent on all of their services, and information regarding payment! There was never any pressure and after trying to get a callback from multiple businesses, Troy with integrity roofing, really exceeded our expectations! They got the job done in a timely manner, and make sure it was up to our standard!
