T-lock roofs are roofs that are made from a type of shingle that hasn’t been in production for more than a decade. These shingles are shaped like the letter T. They also interlock, hence the naming. When t-lock shingles first came out, they were believed to be markedly more wind-resistant than their seal-down counterparts. T-lock shingles were common throughout some states, notably Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico. They were often seen in states that experienced intense winds.
Although t-lock shingles used to be common sights on residential roofs, that simply no longer is the case. Cost is one reason why these shingles are no longer being produced. As architectural shingles emerged, people began using t-lock shingles less and less. Because of this, it ceased being cost-effective to make the shingles. Installation is another big factor. Installing these shingles onto roofs is a cumbersome and time-consuming process.
Like t-lock shingles, 3-tab shingles are also falling out of favor. If you have damage on a 3-tab shingle roof, your roof will no longer be able to properly defend your home. If this is the case for you, prompt professional roofing assistance is necessary.
