Types of Asphalt Shingle Roofing

There are three kinds of asphalt shingles to choose from: three-tab asphalt shingles, architectural asphalt shingles, and premium asphalt shingles.

  • Three-tab Asphalt Shingles: Three-tab asphalt shingles are the most common kind. You can tell what kind they are because they have cutouts that make them look like they are made of three pieces. They are cheap, light, easy to take care of, save energy, and can last up to 20 years.
  • Architecture Asphalt Shingles: They are more durable and waterproof than three-tab asphalt shingles because they are laminated with an extra asphalt layer and stuck together with asphalt sealant. They are also good for the environment and add a lot to the value of your home. They can last for up to 50 years.
  • Premium Asphalt Shingles: As the name suggests, these are high-end versions of asphalt shingle roofing. Even though they were made to look like expensive cedar or slate roofs, they are about ten times cheaper.

In addition to these three types, your shingles could also be made of the following:

  • Fiberglass Shingles: These are made with woven fiberglass as the base, an asphalt coating, and ceramic granules on top. They are waterproof and protect against UV rays, and because they have less asphalt, they are very light and thin.
  • Organic Mat-based Shingles: The base of this type of asphalt shingle roof is a layer of recycled felt paper. They will be heavier, thicker, and a little more expensive than fiberglass shingles, but they will also be more durable and flexible. The downsides are that it is less fire-resistant and more likely to warp.

Pros and Cons of Asphalt Shingles

No matter what type of roof you choose, there will be pros and cons. It’s best to know what to expect from each type before making a decision.


Starting with the pros, asphalt shingles are the most common type of roof, often because they are cheap. With the financing options, we offer at Detroit Roofers, it’s an easy choice for homeowners on a tight budget. A good roof doesn’t have to cost a lot of money if the roof installation was done correctly and kept up well.

It also comes in a lot of different colors, from neutrals like grey and brown to bolder colors like blue and multicolored shades. You can even get asphalt shingles that look like wood or slates, depending on how much you want to spend. It will cost more than natural wood, but it will still be more affordable.

Also, asphalt shingle roof repair isn’t too hard because you can put new shingles on top of the old ones, as long as there aren’t more than two layers underneath and the roof deck is in good shape. But, in general, a roof made of asphalt shingles can last up to 20 years.


Let’s talk about some bad things now. First, asphalt shingles are not very good for the environment. It can’t be recycled without releasing emissions that could be harmful, and it doesn’t last as long as some other types of roofing, so it creates quite a bit of waste.

Also, they don’t work well in all kinds of weather. Some types of asphalt shingles can crack and warp if they are exposed to very hot or cold temperatures or harsh weather. Depending on where you live, you could need an asphalt roof replacement sooner than you think.

During the lockdown, we chose to get a new roof and gutters. We went with Detroit Roofers, even though their quote was a bit higher, because they were really clear about the materials and the high standard of work they promised. Totally worth it and we're really happy with the result. Just last week, during a huge rainstorm, we noticed a leak from one of the gutters. We got in touch with them, and David from their team came by today. He's awesome, really cares about his work and the reputation of Detroit Roofers. We've recommended them before and we'll do it again – top-notch quality all the way.

The owners are really approachable and know their stuff. Everything went super smoothly, and they were cool with fixing our roof while we were away, which was a huge help. Really enjoyed dealing with them. They're quick, do a great job, and it's awesome that they're a local family-run business. Definitely recommend them.

We reached out to several roofing companies for quotes, but Detroit Roofers was the only one that got back to us quickly. We really valued their clear communication and the quality of their work. I'd definitely suggest them for any roofing projects. Plus, they completed our job sooner than expected.

Detroit Roofers just came by to give us an estimate after a branch made a hole in our roof. David showed up a bit early, super professional, and said he'd give us a couple of options to consider. But what really impressed me was that he went the extra mile by finding some temporary materials in his truck to cover the hole better than our makeshift trash bag solution. This kind of effort has us leaning towards choosing them, no matter the cost. It's clear they value quality, and that's the kind of service that earns loyalty.
