Asphalt shingles are tried and true, making them the preferred product line for most homeowners. AmeriPro Roofing can provide the asphalt shingle repairs or replacements you need to keep your home safe and beautiful.
Types of Asphalt Roof Shingles
Asphalt shingles are comprised of a base mat coated with asphalt and topped with ceramic granules that protect the shingle from UV rays. Asphalt shingles come in two forms: organic and fiberglass.
Asphalt Fiberglass Shingles
Also known as glass fiber, fiberglass asphalt shingles contain a mat made of fiberglass with a layer of asphalt added on top. Fiberglass is a popular choice for homeowners because it offers strength and fire resistance. It’s lightweight and cost-effective while still providing protection and durability.
Organic Asphalt Shingles
Organic asphalt shingles have a paper or wood backing. They are thick and flexible, making them an extremely durable roofing option. They tend to be a little more expensive and less environmentally friendly since they contain significant amounts of asphalt.
Five Important Attributes of Asphalt Shingles
Whether fiberglass or organic, asphalt shingles offer several qualities to protect your home.
1. Wind Resistance
Asphalt shingles can resist high winds, though different kinds offer various wind-resistance ratings. The experienced team at AmeriPro Roofing can help you find the best option for your area.
Instead of absorbing heat and UV rays, quality asphalt shingles reflect them. Your home will be much cooler during sunny months, and you’ll save on your energy bill throughout the year.
Asphalt shingles with an impact resistance rating of 1-4 can withstand severe weather conditions such as hail storms. AmeriPro Roofing uses high-quality Owens Corning shingles that are designed to defend and protect your home against damage.
4. Algae Repellance
Algae can cause various issues for homeowners, from discoloration to time-consuming and expensive cleaning. Asphalt shingles are resistant to algae growth and discoloration, saving you time, effort and money.
5. Fire Resistance
Fiberglass asphalt shingles have a Class A fire rating, helping to protect your home and roof from an external fire. The shingle will hold its shape, preventing bits and pieces from falling off and generating smaller burning embers.

What Our Customers
“First of all, I couldn’t be happier with all the professionals at AmeriPro Roofing. For example, from the time they gave me my roofing estimate, to the way they explained every single thing they were going to do. As a result, their service was outstanding. And, the repairs went exactly as they promised, plus they stayed on schedule and answered every question I had. And I had a lot of them. Finally, they treated me like a human being, instead of a person who filled their quota.”
“We wanted to improve the look of our home with new siding. But, we had no clue what colors to use, or what materials would work best. Our contact at AmeriPro Roofing was so patient. And above all, treated us with respect and kindness. We had a lot of questions. And we got the right answers every time. I was nervous about this project, but the vinyl siding is beautiful, and the color we chose just pops like you wouldn’t believe. In conclusion, the service was worth every penny.”
“Our roof needed replacing, and I had called a bunch of other roofers near me. In the first place, some were really pushy. And others treated me like I was stupid. In contrast, the guy at AmeriPro Roofing was a total pro. In fact, he was a straight shooter, listened before he talked, and told me he couldn’t give me any kind of estimate until he did an inspection. After the free inspection, I was sold, and I figure to get another 30 years out of this brand-new roof. In any event, I couldn’t be happier with AmeriPro Roofing.”
