What Is an Architectural Shingle?
Architectural shingles, which are also known as laminated and dimensional shingles, are a type of asphalt shingle. Asphalt shingles, which are the most popular roofing material in North America, are predominantly made from fiberglass, which is covered with asphalt and granules. This material is waterproof and delivers an excellent balance between upfront cost, performance, and lifespan. Architectural shingles have multiple layers, which is why they are referred to as laminated shingles, and those layers give them added depth, which is why they are called dimensional shingles.
Do You Need New Shingles?
A challenge many homeowners face is timing their roof replacements, and a common mistake is to wait too long, which can result in reduced energy efficiency and even structural water damage. Age is the number one consideration, and Victory recommends having new architectural shingles installed proactively based on the expected lifespan of the existing roofing product. Have your roof professionally inspected annually and any maintenance performed as needed. You should also spot-check your attic for visible sunlight and signs of water damage, and keep an eye on your roof from the ground. Look for a sagging roofline, fungal and other growth, flashing that is missing, rusted, or damaged, and shingles that are missing, loose, torn, curled up at the edges, or losing their texture.
