Secure Construction offers asphalt shingles and many other roofing options for those in Huntington Tri-state area and the surrounding areas. There are two main types of asphalt single, 3-tab and dimensional. A 3-tab shingle has two notches cut into the lower edge so that when it's laid on a roof it looks like three smaller shingles. Seen from below, 3-tab shingles have a very distinguishable repetitive pattern. A dimensional shingle has extra pieces of shingle laminated to it that give the appearance of thickness and texture when seen from below, and there is no discernible shingle pattern.
Historically,the average lifespan of an old, 3-tab asphalt shingled roof was 15-20 years. Modern shingles are designed to last much longer. Many even have lifetime warranties. A noted downside to an asphalt shingle roof is deterioration due to weather, starting with gradual wearing off of the granules.
