Strip Shingles (also known as 3-tab shingles, due to the number of cuts in the shingle) are the original and most basic asphalt shingles. They are made from a single layer of asphalt and have a flat appearance that offers the look of slate. They are made from a single layer of asphalt, which generally weigh and cost less than other shingles. Designer shingles were introduced in the 1980s, but before then, strip shingles were the predominant roofing shingle on the market. Now, strip shingles are used most often by home builders that manufacture inexpensive homes, or by homeowners who are replacing roofing shingles on homes that already feature 3 tab shingles on their roof.
