There are 4 major types of Composition Roofing in Amarillo, 3 Tab Composition Roofing, Laminate Composition Roofing, Impact Resistant, or Class 4, Roofing, and Designer Shingle Roofing, in order from least to most expensive.
3 Tab Composition roofs are the least expensive type of Composition roof, and have “3-Tab” style shingles. This style of roofing has been refined a lot, and appears as a single layer product with a distinct tab pattern, which is created by a vertical slot which is notched into the visible shingle, splitting the lower part into three tabs.
Laminate, or Dimensional Roofing, is the most common type of composition roofing in Amarillo. Laminate is a more popular version of Composition Roofing that is better than a basic 3-Tab. They have a second tabbed layer, which is fused to a base shingle, doubling the materials thickness. Laminate Shingles are much more resistant to wind damage, have a strong resemblance to wood shake, and are available in a wide variety of colors.
Designer Shingles, also known as Grand Sequoia, Presidential, Glenwoods, or Grand Canyon Roofing. They use a heavier, 3 or 4 ply Laminate and represent the bleeding edge of Composition Roofing in Amarillo. These shingles are heavier, larger, and thicker than regular laminate shingles, and incorporate extra features, like moss retardants and modified asphalts. Modified Asphalts are considered Class 4 Impact resistant shingles, and are currently the most expensive, but most cost effective type of shingle on the market today.
