If your roof is 10-20 years old, you probably have a 3 tab shingle roof.  What is a 3 tab shingle roof?  This is one of the many types of asphalt roofing.  Common characteristics are as follows:


  • Traditionally the most commonly used type of shingle for roofing
  • Simple in construction and made of fewer materials
  • Almost always comes with a shorter warranty/guarantee and less costly
  • Preferred amongst residential rental properties and other multi-purpose structures
  • On the decline in terms of popularity as the industry



Three tab shingles have been around for a long time.  This is the most commonly used asphalt shingle since hitting the market in the 1950’s.  These shingles are easy to install and come in a wide variety of colors, styles and textures.  Even today, 3 tab shingles are the most popular roof covering.


As certified roofing contractors, we use only top-rated materials from leading manufacturers.  During the planning stages for replacing your roof, one of our roofing experts at A2roofing will provide samples of roofing shingles.  Your involvement is so important to us.  We guarantee your 100 percent satisfaction.



A 3-tab shingle is indeed simple in construction.  It is made of few materials and considered to be the least thickness amongst asphalt shingles.  We believe and have proven through the years that proper installation, maintenance and repair can add years to the life of your roof.


Again, our experienced, professional contractors at A2roofing have a proven record of quality and service relative to all your roofing needs.  And, as Ann Arbor Michigan’s top-rated roofing company, we believe in regular inspections.  This gives our customers the assurance they need that their property is fully protected.



The 3 tab shingle roof is amongst the most inexpensive roofing in the industry today.  This does not mean there is not quality to be had in this type of asphalt roof.  The decrease in cost is due to the low minimal material content.  Yes, it is thinner and thus, does not last as long.  However, the cost saving and durability through the years has been immeasurable.


Since this type of roofing has a shorter life expectancy, warranty and guarantees on the materials are for a shorter period.  The costs versus the benefits of a 3 tab shingle roof must be considered.



In today’s market, some of the best uses of 3 tab shingle roofs are residential rental property, farming type structures and lower income housing.  With regular inspection and maintenance, a 3 tab shingle roof can have a relatively long life while adding aesthetically to the local in which the property is located.



While the 3 tab shingle roof has been the leading choice for many years, it is losing some of its popularity.  More designs have come about in asphalt roofing over the years.   Architectural shingle roofs and roofs of a more organic nature are coming to the forefront fast.
