Shingle Roofing System

Shingle roofing systems are by far the most popular option when it comes to roof replacements and new builds. Regarding the different options, popular companies such as Atlas, Owens Corning, and GAF typically offer two different types of shingles. One option is the 3 Tab shingle, which is a cheaper more common option for mass builds of new neighborhoods. 3 Tab shingles have a flat topography where single shingles come together and meet uniformly. The other option is an Architectural shingle, which is a slightly more expensive option that is known to be more durable. The topography and aesthetic of the Architectural shingles is meant to look sturdier and layered, with shingles overlapping over each other (pics of both options below).

Good Shepherd Roofing is a gold level contractor certified by Atlas. The most common shingles we use that Atlas offers are the Glassmaster 3 Tab shingle and the Pinnacle Pristine Architectural shingles. Price wise, Glassmaster 3 Tab ( replacements will end up costing about $40 less per square (100 sq. ft.) however, the signature select limited lifetime warranty on materials is 40 years less than that of an Atlas Pinnacle Pristine ( Shingle roofing system. There are many options ( to weigh when making the decision between the two.
