Understanding Asphalt Shingles 

The nation’s most popular and commonly used roofing material is asphalt shingles. 

According to WebFX, it accounts for 64% of the roofing market material usage.

Asphalt shingles are widely used for several reasons. 

Easy to install, cost-effective, durable and contains reasonable longevity. 

There are two main types of asphalt shingles: fiberglass and organic. 

Fiberglass shingles are lightweight and fire-resistant. 

Organic shingles are made of recycled materials. And, offer better resistance to wind and impact.

Also, various styles of asphalt are available, such as 3-tab, architectural, and luxury. 

Depending on the type you choose, the performance and aesthetic of the material will vary. 

In general, it offers decent protection against the local weather that Dallas battles.

Unlike 3-tab, architectural and luxury design shingles are impact resistant. 

Also, it is easier to maintain an asphalt roofing system in comparison to other materials.

Benefits of Asphalt Shingles in Dallas

Energy Efficiency

With the sweltering summers in Dallas, energy efficiency is crucial for homeowners. 

Asphalt shingles with reflective coatings help to mitigate heat absorption.

It reduces the strain on your air conditioning system and lowers energy bills. 

Stated by the U.S. Department of Energy, the new asphalt shingles could save up to 50% more energy per unit roof area.


Cost-effectiveness is a crucial consideration for homeowners in Dallas.

And, no doubt asphalt shingles deliver exceptional value. 

It has an average cost of $3.50 to $5.50 per square foot installed.

Asphalt shingles offer an affordable roofing solution without sacrificing quality or performance.

This affordability makes them accessible to many homeowners across the nation.

Also, ensuring everyone can enjoy a proper roof installation.


Durability is essential for roofing materials.

Especially in a city prone to temperature fluctuations and occasional severe weather events. 

If you didn’t know, Texas ranks number 1 as the most hail-affected state in America according to RMIIA.

For this, having a protective roofing system is crucial. 

On average, asphalt shingles boast a lifespan of 10 to 30 years, depending on the type of asphalt.

If you choose the impact resistant asphalts, you can expect it to last longer. 

It displays sturdy construction and resistance to cracking, splitting, and warping. 

And, ensuring they maintain their integrity even in Dallas’s challenging climate.

Variety of Styles and Colors

Beyond their practical benefits, asphalt shingles also offer aesthetic versatility. 

Homeowners can choose from diverse styles, textures, and colors. 

Any kind of option to complement their home’s architectural style and personal preferences. 

Whether you prefer the classic look of three-tab shingles or the dimensional appeal of architectural shingles, there’s an option to suit every taste.

At the same, you also have a premium option to choose from, it is luxury shingles. 

Types of Asphalt 


3-tab is the most basic and lowest-cost asphalt shingle available on the market. 

It is difficult to find because it is currently being phased out in favor of better alternatives.

Due to their rectangular shape and offset layout, 3-tabs are easy to recognize. 

But, they still offer minimal aesthetics and performance. 

It does a decent job of protecting your home from hail, strong winds, rain and UV rays. 

But, unlike other options, it is not impact-resistant. 

Over time, it will incur more heavy damage and reduce its expected lifespan. 

The rate of degradation is higher than you might expect.

It also has wind and hail ratings up to 50 to 90 mph. 

But in Dallas, strong winds can sometimes exceed 100 mph at times. If not resistant enough, it can tear off shingles. 

But, 3-tab asphalt shingles can generally last 10-15 years in Dallas if installed. 

In case of warranties, it will depend on the manufacturer. It is difficult to get in today’s time.

Tho, it offers limited styles and colors but still does a decent job.


It is the most commonly used asphalt shingle for residential properties. 

Manufacturers rolled architectural shingles out in the 1970s. It was an upgrade to the 3-tab shingles. 

As expected, it is more durable and performs much better than 3-tab. 

It is available in various styles, shapes and colors to suit your preference and taste. 

Many homeowners use architectural shingles to mimic the looks of other premium materials.

Such as tiles, slates and wood shakes. And, it is done on a budget. 

At the same time, it is an impact-resistant shingle. 

It provides better protection against hail, strong winds, and UV rays. 

It has claimed a hail and wind rating of 110 to 130 mph. 

Unlike the 3-tabs, shingles will not tear off harsh weather conditions. 

Depending on the manufacturer, general 30-year prorated warranty is available. 

A 50-year non-prorated warranty is available if a manufacturer’s roofing system is purchased. 

Non-prorated means the material won’t lose value. 

Also, in some cases, it offers a 2 to 10 years worth of labor warranty. 

In general, architectural shingles can be expected to last 20 to 30 years in Dallas. 

Unlike 3-tab, it has much more to offer in styles and colors. 


If you want more premium asphalt shingles, you can opt for luxury design shingles. 

It is thicker than the other two options.

Like architectural shingles, they are also impact-resistant shingles. 

Luxury performs much better against the harsh weather that Dallas faces. It includes hailstorms, strong wind, hurricanes and intense sun.

The Cool Roof Rating Council states luxury shingles have the ability to reflect solar heat. 

It contains a higher SRI (Solar Reflective Index) score than 3-tab and architectural.

As a result, you can reduce heat absorption of your property and reduce energy expenses. 

One of the significant reasons why luxury shingles are well-known is visual appeal. 

It offers a wide range of colors, styles, and textures. Allowing Dallas homeowners to achieve the perfect look for their residences. 

You might prefer the classic elegance of slate or the rustic charm of wood shakes. Regardless, shingles can elevate the curb appeal of your home. Also, complementing its architectural style.

The point is it is customizable.

It can last as long as 30 to 40 years with proper installation and maintenance. 

Like architecture, it also offers a general 30-year prorated warranty. 

Also, a 50-year non-prorated warranty is available if a manufacturer roofing system is purchased. 

As you can see, you can mimic the look of wood, shakes and tiles with luxury asphalt.

Our Professional Recommendation

Before making any investment for your roofing system. Ask yourself this.

How long do I intend to stay?

Temporary Stay 

Some people live in their houses for a few years before moving to a new property or state. 

In such cases, we recommend architectural shingles to most homeowners. 

But if you happen to be on a tight budget, you can choose 3-tab shingles. 

With proper installation you are set for the next 10 years. It means you won’t have to worry about your roofing system. 

But, a quality roofing system would be crucial if you intend to sell your house in the future.

Having luxury can make the property more visually appealing. At the same time, adding decent financial value to the property. 

But if you don’t want to invest that much, we recommend architecture over 3-tab. 

Permanent House

On the opposite spectrum, some people choose to live in their house once and for all. 

In this case, if you have the budget, we recommend opting for luxury shingles. 

Once installed well, you won’t have to worry about your roofing system for decades. 

It adds curb appeal, durability and longevity. 

Also, solid projection from harsh weathers of Dallas.

But, if you don’t want to invest in luxury asphalt, we recommend you opt for architectural shingles. 

There is no right or wrong answer. In the end, it will depend from person to person and on each circumstance.
