Why Choose Asphalt Shingles?
When it comes to roof repairs and replacements here in Tulsa, it is crucial to start with the right roofing materials.
There are a lot of options available today for roofing materials, but we have seen time and time again that asphalt shingles do a great job on many of our neighbors roofs here in Tulsa.
Not only that, but they have a great price point, providing a great value with amazing options that you can choose from to perfectly accent your home.
We’ll go over a few of the main reasons that folks choose asphalt shingles for their Tulsa roof replacement or repair.
Practicality is one of the best things about asphalt shingles. Especially if it’s an unexpected roof repair.
We know that during storm season here in Tulsa, you just don’t know what kind of damage that your home may be exposed to.
Asphalt shingles provide a great value for the cost of materials.
Now, this isn’t to say that they are a cheap material. They are sturdy and can hold up against wear and tear for years.
Asphalt shingles come in many many different styles and are provided from a variety of manufacturers.
We’ve had experience with just about every type of roofing shingle over the years, and we can help you choose the best option for your home and your budget.
Asphalt Shingles Are Light
Lightweight roofing materials put less stress on your home’s structure.
Heavier materials like tile, and slate roofing adds more weight on load bearing beams in your home and can affect the joints that support your roof.
With the weather that we regularly experience here in Tulsa, it works to your benefit to have a more light weight shingle on your roof to minimize damage and the cost of repair and replacement.
If a heavier shingle flies off of a roof, it can cause some serious damage depending on where it lands.
Less Installation Time Saves You Money
Asphalt shingles can be installed quickly and efficiently saving you time on the cost of labor when it comes to your roof.
Here at Prestige Roofing and Remodeling we’re certified by several major industry leaders, including GAF, OC, DaVinci, and Topps.

Asphalt Roofing Shingles Can Stand The Test Of Time And Tulsa Weather
We wouldn’t say it if it wasn’t true. We’ve seen it over and over again. Asphalt shingles continue to endure through massive amounts of weather, and the Oklahoma heat, and ice.
We are constantly amazed at what we see our shingles make it through. And when we see a shingle brand that isn’t cutting it, we stop installing it. We want to take care of our neighbors and we wouldn’t install a shingle on your roof that we wouldn’t use ourselves.

What are the different types of asphalt shingles?
If you’re looking at your options for a new roof, or trying to replace or repair any portion of your roof, you may be trying to learn more about the options for asphalt shingles all while trying to find the right roofing contractor.
While we’d love to be your roofing contractor, we also want to provide you with in-depth information on what you need to know about asphalt shingles.
Every roofing contractor in Tulsa that you talk to is going to have their own opinion on asphalt shingles and which type you should use, but we both know that you are the person who has to actually live with the roof that you choose for decades to come.
We want to make sure that you get the shingles that you really want, and at the same time, that will last you for years to come.
Types of Asphalt Shingles
How do I choose an asphalt shingle?
First, you need to know what the three main categories of roofing shingles are.
The basis of these shingles are very similar as far as materials go, but we’ll go over the differences for you below.
These are very affordable shingles that last between 20 to 30 years depending on how much weather they’ve experienced. Here in Tulsa, we see them last around 23 to 25 years. The Oklahoma wind does not go easy on them at all.
With the simplicity of a 3 tab shingle comes fewer options for designs and accenting your home. 3 tab shingles also typically have a shorter lifespan than the other options we’ll go over.
3 tab shingles are considered simple because they come in one piece, on a single layer, and they’re also the most basic and economical shingle on the roofing materials market today.
3 tab shingles are constructed out of fiberglass basemat that is coated with mineral granules. These granules provide a variation in color tones on the shingles.
As we noted above, 3 tab shingles are also very lightweight. When it comes to design, you can easily spot a 3 tab shingle because of their rectangular appearance with hard 90 degree angles on each corner.
One layer of the shingle is notched into 3 tabs (Providing it’s name) to often provide a more unique look.
While 3 tab shingles are great for getting the job done within the bounds of a budget, there are some qualities that are a slight downside to these types of shingles. As 3 tab shingles age they have a greater risk for blowing off of your roof. This can also happen if your asphalt shingles are not properly installed on your roof.
In spite of these downsides, 3 tab shingles can still do a great job protecting your roof, even here in Tulsa.
When anyone talks about a durable, dependable asphalt shingle, most times they’re going to be referring to a dimensional shingle.
The life-span of a dimensional shingle can last well beyond 30 years.
Why? Dimensional shingles have a multi-dimensional (Just like their name) texture, which in turn, provides a multi-dimensional appearance.
That extra life-span does come with an bigger price tag than the 3 tab shingles we went over above, but in our experience you do definitely get your money’s worth with this type of shingle.
Multiple sources, including The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) have listed dimensional shingles as the most popular roofing shingle in use today.
We can vouch for this trend here at Prestige Roofing and Remodeling. Dimensional shingles can stand up very well to the challenge of Tulsa’s sever weather.
How Dimensional Shingles Are Made
Dimensional shingles are constructed of two and sometimes even more than two layers of shingles – compared to the 3 tab shingle, this is a much more highly durable shingle. This extra durability provides an even better warranty for homeowners. Dimensional shingles are commonly warrantied for at least 30 years, and in some cases even life!
A Huge Selection Of Custom Options to Find The Perfect Accent For Your Home
This is the best advantage to dimensional shingles. They can make any home look amazing and significantly increase your curb appeal.
If you’ve ever driven in a neighborhood of houses that looked similar, but a few really stood out to you, it may have been because of dimensional shingles. The variety of options on these shingles allow our team to get creative with you and find a great shingle that makes your home pop from the outside in.
While the up front cost of dimensional shingles is greater than 3 tab shingles, you often times end up gaining that money back by being eligible for a better roofing warranty than you would be eligible for with a regular 3 tab shingle roof.
We generally define a shingle as a luxury shingle if it is first and foremost a dimensional shingle, having that great multi-dimensional appearance, and even more added durability. Even with these added features, often times a luxury asphalt shingle is still going to be less expensive than cedar shingles or even slate shingles.
The goal with a luxury asphalt shingle to really capture the look of a slate or a cedar shake roof but for much less.
With a slate roof, or even a shake roof, the materials are much more expensive, and the labor requires many more man hours for installation. When we’re saying “More expensive” here, we’re talking beyond triple and quadruple the price for slate and shake roofing.
If you’re considering a roof for a home with a classic look tied to a specific time period, or era, luxury shingles are a great alternative to a shake or slate roof for a fraction of the cost. Luxury shingles can provide a great look for any home.
Previously we had mentioned that dimensional shingles are heavier than 3 tab shingles, but when it comes to luxury shingles, the weight increases yet again. Weight is also something that you have to keep in mind depending on the structure and age of your home as well.
