Laminate Shingles

Laminated shingles, also known as architectural shingles,  are a type of shingle that provides more support than the traditional, 3-tab  strip shingle and gives the illusion of a slate or wooden roof for only a  fraction of the cost. Attaching two shingles together instead of using only one  creates laminated shingles. This process adds to their overall strength and  durability.

The original strip shingle is created by attaching asphalt  to paper matting and adding granules to add the color and desired look of the  shingle. Fiberglass may be used to strengthen the shingle. Though these  shingles are cheap and are common for roofing, their life span varies  dramatically based on the amount of harsh weather they are subjected to. The  wear and tear of the elements can fade or tear the shingles.

Laminated asphalt shingles are created using the same  approach, but combine the strength of two shingles for better quality.  Laminated shingles are formed by attaching two shingles to each other, thereby  creating a pattern to mimic the look of a wood or slate roof. This is desirable  both for its stability against the elements and its expensive look. The  laminate shingle may also use fiberglass for reinforcement.
