A Popular Choice:

Asphalt Shingles

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.

2. Reflectance

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.

3. Durability

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.
