Do Roofing Shingles Come in Different Levels of Thickness?

Jan 06, 2021

The rumors are true: Roofing shingles come in all different levels of thickness. First, there are asphalt shingles. The shingles on this roofing style have the lowest level of thickness, featuring three tabs that aren’t very broad. As time went on and roofing manufacturers improved on their engineering processes, they started developing thicker shingles that could hold up much better to the elements. Architectural shingles, for instance, are much thicker than a traditional three-tab asphalt shingle. Premium brands even have a thickness equal to three standard shingles—that’s three times the protection! Plus, with additional thickness is the ability to give these roofs added dimension and texture for an aesthetically appealing look.
