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.
