Architectural shingles, also known as dimensional shingles, are among the highest quality roofing shingles available, offering a range of color schemes and styles to fit any taste or budget. Dimensional roofing shingles outperform and outlast traditional shingles, and even come in shake and slate styles. These shingles are designed to endure weathering and abuse better than flat shingles, right down to the type of aggregate and asphalt used in the outer layer. These laminated composite shingles are constructed on a fiberglass mat, much like traditional ones but have a raised surface that produces a three-dimensional appearance, hence the name dimensional shingles. The pattern lends a stunning effect to any structure, commercial or residential and also helps the shingles resist impact and weathering much better, and for longer periods of time. The carefully engineered asphalt is studded with coated mineral pieces that help break up and disperse the effects of rain and hail, furthering the longevity of the roof and the structure it covers. These types of shingles install the same way as traditional shingling, allowing those familiar with roofing to replace old roofs with ease while also permitting dallas roofing companies to install and repair using current methods and tools. Another advantage to these types of shingles is that shake and slate styles do not require specific weight considerations like with natural materials, reducing costs and installation times. Architectural style roofing shingles are so well designed that most brands, even the economy styles, come with a limited lifetime guarantee. Replacing flat shingles with an dimensional style not only improves the look and longevity of a given structure. It also greatly reduces the chances of future replacements, while adding value to the structure at the same time.
