The various types of asphalt shingles all have similar compositions but are differentiated by the materials used within those compositions. In the case of organic mat-based shingles, they include a base layer of cellulose made up of wood chips, and recycled cardboard, rags and paper. This cellulose mat, or felt, is thicker than fiberglass, making it more durable.

Types of Organic Mat-Based Shingle Roofs

Any type of asphalt shingle variety commonly comes in two types, which differ greatly in cost, durability and the overall finish.

 

Three-Tab Organic Mat-Based Shingles

Three-tab shingles are the more affordable option, though it does not offer much variety in terms of its look. They only come in one size and shape, which delivers a generally flat-looking roof surface. One of the big advantages of three-tab shingles is its lightweight, which is sometimes an important consideration given what the home’s structure can bear.

 

Architectural Organic Mat-Based Shingles

These are also known as 3D or laminate shingles. One of the major drawcards of architectural shingles is its variety of shapes and sizes, as opposed to the uniform look of three-tab shingles. It is such that homeowners will be able to mimic the look of more premium roofing alternatives, like slate and cedar. Individual architectural shingles are also thicker, making them more durable and longer-lasting.

 

Advantages of Organic Mat-Based Shingles

 

Durability

Organic mat-based shingles’ base layer of cellulose together with the double layer of asphalt means it offers superior strength and durability.

 

Versatility

Though only offered by architectural organic shingles, homeowners love the fact that they can determine exactly what their organic shingle roof can look like. There are no restrictions on uniformity, enabling every homeowner to achieve a unique look.

 

Easy Installation

Installing organic shingles is a simple process that could even be DIY’d by homeowners that are adventurous enough. This ease of installation also impacts overall costs as labor requirements are less than it would be for a typical residential roofing alternative.

    Ross and Philip provided exceptional service. We had been having roof leaks for more than 2-3 yrs in certain spots in the house.We had this inspected by multiple roofers and no one was able to figure out where the water was coming from … More in the house as there were no obvious signs of roof damage. Ross and Philip were onsite multiple times and helped figure out the issue and fix it. They were always very professional, always came on time and above all figured out the problem.
    They definitely went above and beyond.
    Regarding the work, they went over all the steps in detail. The work was clean and neat. We will definitely call them for any roofing issues.
