The primary differences between the two shingle types are the construction processes and the materials used. Organic shingles are produced using an organic felt mat with a layer of tar. The asphalt granules which, act as a UV barrier are then mixed into the tar. However, over time the bond between the tar and granules is weakened. At this point, the granules can start to break off, allowing the sun to penetrate the mat causing the shingles to break down faster. Fiberglass shingles are produced by dipping a fiberglass mat in tar, completely encasing the mat. Because fiberglass is porous, it is able to soak up the tar, creating an extremely strong bond. The mat is then dipped in asphalt granules, resulting in a shingle that integrates all layers into one seamless product.

Long Lasting Appearance
Shingles deflect harsh sunlight and algae to avoid fading, warping or breaking. Asphalt shingles may maintain a newer appearance years after installation.
Architectural vs. 3 Tab
Architectural shingles are aesthetically pleasing. Since they are heavier, they are less likely to undergo warping and provide great resistance to the wind.
Standard 3-tab shingles are usually rated for normal wind speeds, while most architectural shingles can withstand winds of up to 120 mph. Cost between the two kinds of shingles are almost identical.
