A Popular Choice:
Asphalt shingles are tried and true, making them the preferred product line for the majority of homeowners.
Asphalt shingles have been a popular roofing choice for several years due to their affordability and relatively straightforward installation. They are comprised of a paper or fiberglass mat coated with asphalt. Asphalt shingles come in two forms: organic and fiberglass (also known as glass fiber). Organic asphalt shingles have a paper mat or backing with a layer of asphalt added on top. Fiberglass asphalt shingles contain a mat made of fiberglass with a layer of asphalt added on top.
Five Important Attributes of Asphalt Shingles
1. Wind Resistance
Asphalt shingles can resist high winds, but they all have different wind-resistance ratings. An experienced roofing contractor can help you decide which option is the best for your area.
2. Solar Reflectance
Instead of absorbing the solar heat down into your home, quality asphalt shingles reflect it. As a result, your home will be much cooler, and you’ll save on heating and cooling costs throughout the year.
3. Impact Resistant
Asphalt shingles with an impact resistance rating of 1-4 are ideal for inclement weather conditions such as hail storms.
4. Algae Resistant
While algae doesn’t pose any particular danger to your roofing or siding, it isn’t very pretty to look at. Asphalt shingles have a high resistance to algae growth and the discoloration it can cause.
5. Fire Resistant
Asphalt shingles have a Class A fire rating, helping to protect your home and roof in the event of a fire.
