What Are Dimensional Shingles?

Dimensional shingles are made of two shingle strips laminated together, and it gives an otherwise flat shingle a more dimensional base. This multi-layered base creates a thick, durable material, giving architectural shingles a great reputation for enduring high winds and other extreme weather circumstances as we experience in Brevard County, Florida. Dimensional shingles are great at handling the extreme nature that Florida dishes out.

Not to mention, the depth and coloring options of these shingles make them comparable to the look of high-end, premium roofing—at a much more affordable price.
