After 2 other companies could not fix our leak from the roof, Roofer911 did! Very professional, personable, and they got the job done when others could not.

3-Tab Roofing Shingles

3 tab roof shingles

A shingle that shows 3 tabs, or measures 3 feet, is fittingly known as 3-tab roofing shingles.  They are normally guaranteed for 20 years and help the roof to have a smooth, defined look.  Depending on the manufacturer, 3-tab shingles are often available in 20, 25 or even 30 year limited warranties.  They are generally available in a variety of colors and it’s also important to note that 3-tab roofing shingles are some of the most cost efficient shingles to use on your home.

 

Are 3-Tab Roofing Shingles For You?

Before deciding on 3-tab roofing shingles for your home, check with your local homeowner’s association.  In addition to certain restrictions that each association may have, some do not allow the use of 3-tab shingles.  This may be true in areas that are prone to high wind or other inclement weather, but check with your local building requirements to be sure.

Replacing 3-Tab Roofing Shingles

If you need to replace 3-tab roofing shingles, you can either do the job yourself or hire a professional roofing contractor, such as Roofer911.com.  If you decide to take the job on yourself, choose a warm, dry day.  Do not work on the roof if it is wet or slippery.  Once you’re on the roof, carefully pry the tabs of the shingles upward, which overlap the damaged one.  Loosen the tabs and the adhesive on the back of the shingle.  Work carefully to avoid damage to the neighboring shingles.  If you lift too many tabs on good shingles, they may crack.  For the shingle that you are removing, look for the nails holding it into place and remove them as well.  Once the shingle is out, remove any debris from that area before placing the new shingle.  With your new shingle in hand, search for the adhesive strips near the bottom of each of the 3 tabs.  Slide the new shingle into place and secure it with nails.  You may use roofing cement to secure the overlaying tabs.
