25-Year 3-Tab Cut Up Shingles

3 Tab Shingles

We commonly see other contractors taking an inferior, non-code approved 3-tab shingle and cutting it up into pieces to be used as cap shingles. From the ground homeowners can't tell the difference. The lowest guaranteed shingles we install are Lifetime shingles. If the cap shingles are only guaranteed 25-years, the entire roof system is compromised and the homeowner didn't get what they paid for. Shingle manufactures such as Tamko, IKO, Marlkey, Atlas & others do not make a special cap shingle designed to match the roof's guarantee. Very few roofers pay the extra money for the correct cap shingle to match the roof system they are installing. The hip and ridge area of the roof receives the most abuse and is most susceptible to blow off during a high wind event, such as a hurricane. Additionally, 3-tab shingles are often interchanged between manufacturers attempt color matching, which rarely happens accurately. Kelly Roofing does not recommend this practice.

The Kelly Difference

We commonly see other contractors taking an inferior, non-code approved 3-tab shingle and cutting it up into pieces to be used as cap shingles. From the ground homeowners can't tell the difference. The lowest guaranteed shingles we install is 30-year going all the way up to Lifetime. If the cap shingles are only guaranteed 25-years, the entire roof system is compromised and the homeowner didn't get what they paid for. Shingle manufactures such as Tamko, IKO, Marlkey, Atlas & others do not make a special cap shingle designed to match the roof's guarantee. Very few roofers pay the extra money for the correct cap shingle to match the roof system they are installing. The hip and ridge area of the roof receives the most abuse and is most susceptible to blow off during a high wind event, such as a hurricane.
