Not the same as the old roof:
The new roof is made of dimensional shingles, which my wife tells me are better and more durable than regular shingles (these came with a 30-year warranty in any event). Krissy also got them in green to match the house trim. It looks very nice, I think. Hopefully this will be the end of all roof problems forever, or for at least 30 years, which is also fine.
