The Best Shingles for Your Roof and Budget

How much does a new roof cost? Well, it depends. From the slope, pitch and size of your roof to the cost of the material, you could spend upwards of $65,000 for a high-end tile, wood or slate roof or downwards of $4,500 for a basic 3-tab asphalt shingle roof.

Sure, there is always a place for the more expensive roofing shingles. Tile shingles are visually appealing and enduring. Slate shingles can last up to 100 years. And wood shingles are environmentally friendly. But the most popular and affordable roofing shingle—delivering the most bang for your buck—is the asphalt shingle.

Asphalt roofing shingles are durable, attractive, middle-of-the-road shingles perfect for homeowners with a budget between $4,500 and $9,500. With customization features, 15 to 30-year warranties, and strong resistance to harsh weather, asphalt roofing shingles give homeowners a smart, sensible solution to protect their roof and home without breaking the bank.

Architectural roofing shingles

Price:  $4.95 per square foot

Budget to install: $5,900 – $10,900

Architectural shingles add a touch of class to your roof and home for an amazing value.

Thick, beautiful, long-lasting, and rich with dramatic texture, architectural roofing shingles promise a level of quality unmatched by standard 3-tab shingles. This versatile type of shingle fits beautifully with a wide range of styles from the contemporary home to the small cottage to the classic Victorian.

High durability ratings and beautiful aesthetics separate the high-end architectural shingle from the standard shingle. More advantages include strong wind resistance (up to 120 miles per hour), longer warranties (30 years compared to 10 to 20 years for the average shingle), and slightly higher energy efficiency.

The extra benefits tack on a higher price tag—about a dollar more per square foot than the standard asphalt shingle. Your total budget for architectural roofing shingles also depends on the product type (basic or premium) and your location.

A strong foundation helps resist cracking and splitting while powerful adhesive seals the shingles tightly to reduce the risk of blow-off. Fine-quality materials help improve weathering in harsh conditions while UV blockers protect against damaging sunlight. All the performance factors unite to promote roof durability and longevity.
