Review Summary:

Entry level three tab for super budget situations

Pros

-Inexpensive-Easy to find, available at home improvement warehouses-Ease of Install, Universal accessories-Long Time proven budget performer

Cons

-Saving money means sacrificing shingle weight and total longevity-Low wind uplift rating of only 60mph - not suitable for high wind locations.-Soon to be obsolete except for matching existing roofs as dimensionals continue to gain market share.

Entry Level 3 Tab Shingle Choice: 

The entry level shingle from Owens Corning come sin the form of a very traditional looking 3-Tab shingle the Supreme AR 25. Available in 13 colors to blend to nearly any homes color scheme will help those homeowners on a budget but still needing to match a particular design.  These shingles are one of the most widely stocked shingles at home improvement warehouses such as Menards.  They come 4 bundles to a square providing a true 100 sq. ft. of coverage.  If a budget conscience yet proven reliable shingle is what you are looking for this may be the way to go.  Please keep in mind for only around 10% material cost more you could upgrade to a more widely popular and modern dimensional shingle.  The next step up in the line would be Oakridge shingles which is Owens Corning entry level dimensional shingle.  With the cost difference being so minimal now we HIGHLY recommended staying away from this first generation style shingles.
