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.

    Great company! They were very responsive, professional and thorough. Fast service—They Installed the roof just a couple days after we signed the contract. Cleanup was exceptional. We needed new gutters and they made arrangements with another … More company to install the gutters. We were very pleased. We highly recommend this company. We loved working with Jeff. He kept us updated on every step of the project.

    I hired Integrity Roofing and Painting after I flagged Ken down on the street as they were wrapping up on a neighbors house. Ken was extremely helpful, supportive as we struggled with what was to us a large purchase, and was responsive … More even when I asked him questions on a weekend as I made my decision. He was patient and allowed me my space to make the decision and then once I made it he walked me through the process, made sure I understood everything (along with the fact that to him Integrity really was what he valued), and then kept in constant communication with me as we scheduled, and then finally installed. The crew that showed up were amazingly hard workers and did everything they could to get done as quickly as possible. They cleaned up so well I haven't found anything but a super small piece of paper that got away and ended up hidden in the bushes. To me that is amazing because it is a lot they have to manage as they rip off the old roof. Ken checked in often with the crew and myself for the 1 day and 2 hours they were on site. That is fast, we had a large roof (I don't remember what the number of squares, but it was large). So fast crew, conscientious crew, great communication and great finished project.Services: Roof installation, Skylight installation

    During the sale of my home, I was made aware that my roof needed to be replaced. The closing was scheduled for 3 weeks out so time was limited. I used Integrity to perform an inspection and confirm the damage. Integrity not only met with … More the Inspector, but relieved my concerns by walking me through the process and assured me that they would expedite the installation.They did an amazing job! Myself and the new homeowners were completely satisfied. I would highly recommend them and use them again ~Deb WieczorekServices: Roof inspection, Roof installation
