Asphalt shingles (continued)
Generally, thicker shingles are more durable and have longer warranties. A variant called architectural or laminated shingles features overlapping tabs that mimic the shadow patterns of thicker materials such as slate and wood. All varieties of asphalt shingle come in many colors.
Expect to pay $200-$400 per square, installed. Do-it-yourselfers with less-steep roofs can expect to pay $1 to $2 per square foot for tear-off, and $65 to $100 per square for shingles.
