Asphalt Roof Shingles Add Curb Appeal
Enhance the appearance and resale value of your property with a high-quality asphalt shingle roof. Asphalt shingles can mimic the look of slate, wood shakes, or even tile when they’re properly installed. Asphalt roof shingles come in a variety of colors as well, including varying degrees of red, brown, beige, gray, blue, and green.
Asphalt maintains the permanence of granules in shingles while enhancing the overall strength of the roofing itself. High-quality asphalt does not dry out, turn brittle, or harden, thereby preserving the durability of asphalt shingles through extended periods of heat, cold, snow, ice, and wind.
Choosing Between Organic- and Fiberglass-Based Shingles
Asphalt shingles are made from either fiberglass or organic roofing materials. When you’re deciding on which material is right for you, it generally boils down to weighing value against long-term performance.
Fiberglass shingles are favored by many homeowners and contractors because they’re thin, light, more fire-resistant, and usually come with a longer warranty. The base mat of this shingle is woven fiberglass coated with waterproof asphalt and embedded with ceramic tile granules.
Traditional organic shingles have a base layer of recycled felt saturated with asphalt for waterproofing, then covered with a layer of adhesive asphalt embedded with ceramic granules. With about 40 percent more asphalt, organic shingles are more flexible and rugged than their fiberglass counterparts. They’re also thicker, heavier, and more expensive.
Going Green With An Asphalt Shingle Roof
From an energy-efficiency standpoint, contemporary shingle manufacturers are using new cooling technologies to reduce heat that can be absorbed by the roof. This helps homeowners save money while going green, reducing monthly air conditioning and refrigeration costs. Based on the local climate, environmental factors, and the potential of severe heat and cold, warranties for asphalt shingles tend to vary from 15 to 30 years.
