Question shingle type

Hi. I'm curious as to what the difference "really" is between the 25-30-50 year shingles. And is it worth the upgrade.

The quality of the shingles is different, and it's primarily about the warranty if they should ever fail early.
It depends on how long you plan to own the home, and your budget. Your call.
Good luck!

Shingle differences

The main difference in the 25-30-40-50 year shingles is the amount of asphalt in the shingle.
Asphalt is the waterproofing in the shingle.
Your best bet is to go with a 30 year laminated shingle. Unless you have a really nice home that you plan on retiring in, 40-50 year shingles are usually overkill.
