Shingle Roofing

Chicagoland Residential Shingle Roofing


Architectural shingles are one of the most common shingle roofing products used throughout the Chicagoland area because of their durability and affordability. Architectural shingles are manufactured with multiple layers of asphalt fused on top of each other. The result is a richer, multidimensional quality that looks a bit like wood or slate roofing. Architectural shingles come in a wide variety of colors to match the exterior decor of any home.

Replacing a roof is inevitable – changing the color or style of your shingles is a great way to put a personal touch on your home and add real value. Matrix Exteriors only uses quality products from GAF and CertainTeed. When installing these products we use the corresponding components that work together to give you the best roofing system available. Contact Us today for a free, no-obligation estimate.

    Architectural vs. 3-Tab Shingles: Is Cheaper Better?

    Asphalt shingles are a roofing staple all over North America by dint of their low upfront cost and easy installation. They are currently the most significant player in the roofing market, outpacing all other roofing materials by a considerable margin. Asphalt shingles are manufactured in two different types: three-tab and architectural.

    Three-tab shingles are distinguished by cutouts—tabs—made along their long lower edge. The result, says Joan Crowe, a technical services director for the National Roofing Contractor’s Association (NRCA), is that “each shingle looks like three separate pieces when installed, but it’s only one.” Three-tab shingles have been around a long time and are still the most economical and most popular shingle today.

    Architectural asphalt shingles contain no cutouts, but their lower portions are laminated with an additional asphalt layer. This creates the contoured, dimensional look that gives them their name. Asphalt sealant bonds the layers, reinforcing the shingles’ waterproof capability. Though durable, architectural shingles are not recommended for low-sloping roofs, which are more vulnerable to wind-driven rain.

    Although the difference between three-tab and architectural shingles seems superficial, roofers consider the latter a more high-end roofing product. The price difference reflects this, with architectural shingles costing 20% to 40% percent more than three-tab shingles—a difference that can mean up to $1500 more for larger roofs.

    But are architectural shingles worth the extra cost? The Answer Is Yes, Unequivocally Yes. Here’s why:

    • Architectural shingles can be made to resemble premium roofing materials like cedar and slate and are better able to hide imperfections on the roof surface.
    • Architectural shingles are nearly twice as thick as three-tab shingles and are therefore more durable and less vulnerable to curling.
    • Weight and wind resistance. Three-tab shingles usually weigh 240 lbs per square and are rated for wind speeds up to 60 mph; architectural shingles weigh 340-440 lbs per square and are rated for wind speeds up to 80-120 mph.
    • Manufacturer’s warranties. Twenty-five years for three-tab, 40 to 50 years for architectural.

    So is it cheaper better? The answer will depend on how you look at things. Three-tab shingles are more affordable upfront, but throughout your roof’s lifetime, architectural shingles can cost less.

    Initially, I was skeptical when speaking with David Ortiz, the production coordinator from Matrix. He assured me that they could complete a new roof, new gutters, new soffit and fascia, new siding, and a new window on my garage in just two days. However, he delivered on his promises and met his contractual obligations. This company is the real deal—they truly know how to handle business. They have earned and deserve an AAA rating.

    David and his team are phenomenal. We hired Matrix for a full roof replacement, all siding, removal of brick, adding stone work, gutter replacement, and skylights (4) replacements. I cannot recommend his company enough.Throughout the entire process David himself was involved and saw to it that any concerns we had were addressed and he even dealt with our insurance company!Charles, our Project Manager, was knowledgeable, kind, and attentive to any questions we had. He handled a number of items himself including remounting our Security cameras and ensuring our pickets worked! Beyond all of the great work, Charles was always respectful of our home and kind with our children following him around.Erik, our Adjuster, was really put to task with this one and fought valiantly against giant State Farm & WON!Matrix really turned around our mindset when it comes to working with contractors. We were nervous because of previous bad experiences and David gave us so many reassurances throughout the process all of which he lived up to.We wish they did more so we could hire them time and time again. For sure, they will get all of our friends and family's business.
    What an outstanding company to work with! David and his team, especially Chris Banks, went WAY above and beyond our expectations to replace our 40-year old roof! As we went through State Farm (SF), Matrix's public adjusters made sure SF paid their fair share on our claim. Once SF was sorted after a battle of attrition, Matrix went to work on the house and in ONE DAY, they stripped the old shingles, padded old rafters, re-sheeted, added moisture guard, vents, downspouts, gutters with leaf guards, fixed damage, and re-shingled our roof! During this entire process, drone imagery was provided, giving us an hour by hour progress update! Within eight hours, our house value increased 7% and we now have a 50-year warranty! I highly recommend Matrix, without reservation, especially if you have to deal with a low-balling insurance company. Thanks Chris, Dave, and your outstanding Matrix crew!!

    I enlisted Matrix's assistance in navigating an insurance claim following a severe storm in my town. From start to finish, my experience with this company was incredibly smooth. Matrix swiftly secured approval from my insurance carrier for $51,500.00. Following the approval, I met with David, the quality control manager from the construction team, who oversaw all the repairs on my house. The construction team was exceptional, just like the adjusters. They installed a new roof, new gutters and downspouts, new soffit and fascia, re-capped all my windows and doors, and conducted exterior painting—all completed within three days by hardworking individuals who left no trace behind. My house now looks stunning. I chose this company based on their positive reviews, and I have no regrets about my decision.

    Matrix installed a roof of my house approximately a year ago. Recently, I reached out to them for an estimate for siding, soffit, and fascia on my home. A Matrix representative by the name of David arrived at my home, and during our discussion he referenced the movie "The Godfather" and its iconic line by Marlon Brando which was I will give you a deal that you can't refuse & David assured me that he would present an offer I couldn't refuse, and indeed he did. We quickly reached an agreement, and in just 48 hours, a skilled crew from Matrix completed the installation of new siding, soffit, and fascia on my entire house in just one day. I am incredibly pleased with the excellent job they did. Thank you very much to David & Matrix artisans who modernized my home.

    My encounter with Matrix, which handled an Allstate claim on my behalf, was an incredibly seamless process. They oversaw the entire process for me, and upon receiving full approval from my insurance carrier, the construction company Matrix, which was responsible for installing my new GAF roofing system, was equally efficient. Their level of organization and professionalism was exceptional throughout the experience. AAA service.

    I contacted Matrix for a quote on new gutters and roof repairs, and a representative named David Ortiz from Matrix arrived to discuss my options. He was highly knowledgeable, articulate, and provided valuable information so I entered into a contract with him. The next day, the workers arrived and completed the job as promised. David's genuine concern for customers was evident in his demeanor and expert negotiation skills, reflecting his extensive experience in sales. Matrix is the go-to company for home renovations done efficiently and without any hassle. I am grateful to the Matrix team and David for their excellent work.

    On February 26, 2024 Dupage county experienced severe storms that left many properties damaged in the area. We were met with multiple roofing and exterior company’s for possible inspection on the hail damage left behind. Matrix Exteriors impressed us the most. March 11, 2024 we were met with Eric who did the initial inspection, and it was like seeing a long time friend. He used a drone for the inspection and took photos. They were the only company that offered this. There was no pressure was so ever. He showed us the damage and concerns. March 15, 2024 the claims adjuster met with Eric and Ryan from Matrix Exteriors. They showed the adjuster the property. 20 minutes later, Matrix Exteriors came back with approval on moving forward with replacing the dwelling, garage and shed roof. On March 19, 2024 David, Senior Production Manager showed us our options and went over the material used and warranties offered. March 21, 2024 Matrix Exteriors construction crew of 15 plus were here and to work. They started at 8am and were done by 2pm! The work done was outstanding. We are beyond impressed with the high quality product and work they have done. On the same day of install, our next door neighbors were getting their roof done as well. It took that other company two days just to do the dwelling vs the 3 roofs Matrix Exteriors did in 6 hours. Matrix Exteriors is now our official go to for exterior work. I highly recommend this company. Whether you are doing an insurance claim or looking to simply update your home, give them a call. My family thanks you for your teams hard work in providing such amazing product. Let’s not forget the clean up as well, not a single nail or debris left behind. The entires experience was seamless!

    The service from Matrix was phenomenal. First of all, the service is top notch, they look out for your interests, negotiate with the insurance adjuster and provide full service. It was painless and seamless. David was awesome, the way he explained, the way he got the team to execute in short order, provided the best solution and advised where things were not necessary instead of trying to upsell. The crew/workmen who replaced the roof were super quick delivering a high quality roof replacement, extremely professional and very clean. Not the smallest of debris was left lying around. Never seen such a diligent crew. Last but not the least, Ryan was great as well as he was my first point of contact and took extra care liaising with the insurance adjuster. Overall, if you want exterior renovation, remodel, repair etc. they should be on your speed dial. You couldn't get better service and that too without having to prompt or chase. They wont upcharge you and provide you the best/upgraded solution. Entire experience was one to remember. I would highly recommend Matrix.
