On the scale of price, the luxury shingles match their name. These shingles are the highest-quality laminate offering a distinguished appearance or functionality that outclasses other shingles. Though this option is the most expensive, it offers premium protection for weathering. Depending on your budget, opting in for these shingles will make you stand out in your neighborhood as these products provide the most realistic representation of wood-shake and quarried slate roofing.
These shingles fall right in the middle of the price continuum for asphalt shingles. They are the most popular choice for home builders during initial construction and homeowners during a roof replacement. Dimensional shingles add flair to an otherwise lackluster roof. Like luxury shingles, dimensional roofing is meant to mimic the wood and slate options that are more costly. They provide a multi-dimensional appeal but fall short with slate or wood shake authentic recreation.
Strip shingles are used less and less now that designer shingles are manufactured for a fraction of the cost. Strip shingles come in three-tab strips that are flat and attach to the roof in panels. The main reason for using them now would be to repair roofs that already have strip roofs or are a very low-cost construction. However, they are not recommended in new construction projects.
