A good choice, if you have an extremely tight budget. The downside is that they provide theleast wind protection for your family's home.

Architectural asphalt shingles are heavier than the 3-tab shingles and will provide you with a much better wind rating than the much lighter 3-tab shingles.
Architectural shingles are sometimes referred to as laminated or dimensional shingles. During the production of the architectural shingle, the manufacturer laminates shingle parts together. This laminated part creates depth and provides dimension. Little fun fact, this shingle was designed to look like real wood shake shingles.
Architectural shingles are also the most popular of the asphalt shingles installed on homes in 2022.
In my opinion, the darker colors, especially the brown colors, typically look more natural, because they resemble a real wood shake shingle roof more so than the gray colors or lighter gray colors do.
