Premium composition asphalt shingles are called “architectural” shingles

Composition shingles (asphalt shingles) are the most common shingles that you will see on homes in Texas, Oklahoma and across the United States; up to 80% of all homes in the U.S. have composition shingle roofs.

Asphalt and composition shingles are commonly referred to as “three-tab” because they come in a strip with notches that create what appears to be three separate shingles.

These thicker, often laminated shingles cast shadow lines like a thick wood shake. The result is a rich, textured appearance rather than the traditional flat surface of standard three-tab shingles.

All asphalt shingles are coated with a layer of mineral granules that protect the shingle from sunlight, add color and, in some cases, help resist algae and fungus growth. Manufacturers can discourage unwanted plant life by adding copper or zinc to the granule mix.
