There are Two Different Types of Asphalt Roofs

3-Tab Shingles

3-Tab shingles are flat and uniform asphalt shingles. Because they use less material than an architectural shingle, they weigh and cost less, but they are not as durable as an architectural shingle.


Architectural Shingles

Architectural shingles are the more popular variation of asphalt shingles. These shingles provide a dimensional look and feel to your roof, and they are stronger than their alternative.

Usage & History

This is the quintessential American roof.

Asphalt shingles are the most common type of roofing shingles in the United States. These shingles are built to provide long-lasting protection for your home.

Why Asphalt Shingles?

  • The Most Resistant

    Asphalt shingles are resistant to almost all catastrophes, including weather, fire and algae.

  • Wind Resistance

    Three-tab-shingle asphalt roofs have a wind resistance of up to 60 MPH, and architectural-shingle asphalt roofs are resistant to winds between 110 and 130 MPH.

  • Solar Reflecting

    Asphalt shingles are solar reflecting; they direct solar heat away from your home and keep cooling costs down.

Clients’ Testimonials

Eric and the Roof Clinic did an amazing job replacing the roof on our home. I cannot thank them enough for the professionalism and outstanding communication throughout the project.
I highly recommend them! 5 Stars!!!

“Honesty, Professionalism and Integrity is what this company is about. Eric and his team knows the business and owns their work. I called Eric for the name of a gutter cleaner for my steep roof. He offered to do it himself! My kind of guy. If you need a replacement or repair, The Roof Clinic is a business that can be trusted.”

“The Roof Clinic replaced my storm damaged roof yesterday. I have no complaints. From the initial assessment, to dealing with my insurance company, to installing the roof, Eric and his team were on top of it every step of the way. I highly recommend this company.”

“We had hail. We called Roof Clinic & Allstate (which always likes to deny). In fact if not for Eric Thomas they would have denied as they were not even gonna get on the roof. He fixed that and got my adjuster ON THE ROOF. We got a new roof. This company is top notch.”
