The three tab shingle should have been the only type of asphalt shingle coming off the roof, really. I believe the winds reached a ceiling at about 83kph, last I heard. I could be completely off. I did not monitor the weather network, I just opened my front door and said, HOLY S***, IT'S WINDY!
If you've lost lifetime (50 year) shingles, it's because your roofing crew did not nail your shingles in the right spot (we've observed a relatively small occurrence of these). Chances are the shinglers were prioritizing speed over accuracy. It makes the other shinglers marvel in their super fast glory (not at all), and it allows the crew to quickly move on to the next roof.
I have heard and read comments about the quality of materials and the speculation that metal roofs may be better. I always mention the wind ratings of our shingle products when comparing lifetime to 25 year, especially when I believe the former is more suitable to a homeowner's needs. It's 130mph versus 60mph. Again, the lifetimes performed well. There is no need to spend 4 times as much getting a metal roof and sticking out like a sore thumb in your suburban neighborhood (unless you are into that sort of thing). I'm not against metal roofs. I just see them in neighborhoods where they look misplaced. I tell people all the time that lifetime means 50 years regardless of the product (metal or shingle). To be clear, metal lasts 50 years. Lifetime shingles last 50 years. Both seemed to have held up really well as per our findings in the last 4 days.
Now, I need to mention, again, that I do not get paid to plug CertainTeed. I just proudly install their shingles because we do not get callbacks for blow-offs (well.. we had one or two by homeowners that did not heed our warning to upgrade to a lifetime which would have prevented that). All shingles are nailed but not all of them seal the same. The seal is what will save you in a wind storm. It stops the shingle from flapping up violently during high winds, and ripping off. I know, someone has mentioned, that they buy Canadian products only but I'm gonna call them out on that one. Unless you wear Roots, drive a GM, shop at local farms instead of the supermarket, etc,,, I think you're lying. Just sayin. It's okay if you desire the best quality goods at a comparable or same price, even if it comes from somewhere else. It's going to happen at some point in your life. All of the Canadian furnishings under your roof should be well protected.
