3-Tab Roofing Shingles
The two most common shingles offered in residential roofing are 3-Tab shingles and Architectural or Dimensional shingles. Most homes in the area that are older than 10 years old are roofed with the traditional 3-Tab shingles; however, Architectural shingles are quickly rising in popularity.

3-Tab Shingle Design
Roofers refer to a shingle as 3-Tab because it is made up of three individual tabs that are 12” wide. 3-Tab shingles come with either a 20yr, 25yr, or 30yr warranty. Like Architectural shingles, 3-Tab roofing shingles are asphalt-based products that work by shedding water to the shingle below.
Look and Feel
Each shingle looks like three separate pieces when installed, but it’s only one. 3-Tab shingles have been around a long time and are still the most economical and most popular shingle today.
