This shingle roof installed on a home in Lutz FL matched perfectly with their exterior. They went with Owens Corning’s TruDefinition Duration shingle, color: antique silver.

They went with architectural dimensional shingles which really popped! The main difference between dimensional shingle vs 3-tab is how they look. architectural shingle AKA dimensional shingles differ because the actual shingle tabs have various sizes and shapes, giving it that “dimensional” look. Notably, they are also thicker and can weigh up to 50% more than 3-tab. This is not a bad thing. The thicker single means they have a longer warranty than most 3-tab and offer better protection.
That is why The Roofing Company of Tampa Bay always recommends dimensional shingles because of its Superior looks and longer durability.
However, the only benefit of a 3-tab shingle is that it cost less money. This type of shingle is preferred by homeowners that are ready to sell or have a lower value home where the initial higher cost cant be met for dimension shingles.
If you are having a hard time deciding which shingle you should choose then give us a call and the business owner will go over them with you.
