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.

The best roofers in the Detroit area. They provide excellent customer service and were very helpful in making my decision. I would recommend them to my friends and family without hesitation. My experience with Detroit Roofers has been a pleasure from start to finish. After having several estimates done for my roof, I decided to use the services of this roofing company in Detroit because they were the most competitively priced but also had a great reputation for their customer service. The crew was quick, professional, and did an amazing job of installing a new metal roof on my house in just one day! It's great knowing that they have such high standards that make me feel confident about their workmanship when it comes to protecting my home.

I had no idea having a roof replacement in Detroit could be so simple. They agreed to come out the next day to give me a price, immediately scheduled me in, and rebuilt the roof in less than a day and a half. The crew was incredibly accessible via phone and text. I appreciate that they acknowledged I was under a tight timeline and did all they could to cooperate with me and assist me accomplishing that target. Thank you so much for taking care of my needs! I definitely recommend Detroit Roofers!

Our house now has a new roof thanks to Detroit Roofers. Their crew was excellent. Hardworking, professional, respectful, and great at safeguarding furniture and shrubbery about the house, as well as cleaning up after the project was complete. The work was completed in a single day, and the roof looks amazing. Derrick did an excellent job of overseeing the project from start to end. I would refer them to anyone in the Detroit area who is in need of roofing services.

My partner and I were anxious about our roof project due to it being the first big item we had to worry about the safety of with the house as younger, first-time property owners. Detroit Roofers was fantastic to work with and helped make the process a breeze!! They were always on time for all of it, always responded quickly, and took the time to inform and educate me in detail what I didn't understand. Dave and his crew did a tear off (including some cedar shake areas), relocated our kitchen vent, replaced some sub-decking, and finished the new shingling just in time for some rain. The team was extremely professional, quick, and efficient in all aspects of the project! My partner and I will always suggest them as the go-to roofing contractors in Detroit to anyone we know who is looking for one. Thank you once more, gentlemen!

David and Detroit Roofers were an absolute pleasure to work with. Communication was straightforward and professional. They were patient when it came to negotiating the final bill for wind damage repairs with my insurance provider and credit union. His crew did an excellent job and picked up after themselves. I highly recommend these Detroit roofing contractors!!

David responded quickly to our request for a quote. We had a large roof that needed to be replaced, as well as gutter replacement. It was an older house in the Detroit suburbs with some rotting wood, but David had foreseen this and had new wood on hand. The issue was worse than expected, but he and his crew had extra wood there right away. New vents were installed, but first he explained that having more than one vent would be ideal for proper airflow. He also addressed all of our concerns and questions. The crew was fantastic, and clean-up was done every night. We are very satisfied with the work that was completed and would highly suggest him to anyone who needs to replace or repair their roof. Thank you so much, Detroit Roofers!!
