Asphalt Shingles Are A Popular Choice

Tried and true, many homeowners still opt for traditional Asphalt

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.

5 Important Attributes of Asphalt Shingles

1. Wind Resistance 

Asphalt shingles can resist high winds, but all have different wind-resistance ratings. An experienced roofing contractor can help you decide which one 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 will save on heating and cooling costs throughout the year. 

3. Impact Resistant

Asphalt shingles with an impact resistance rating of 1-4 makes them 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 its discoloration.

5. Fire Resistant

Asphalt shingles have a Class A fire rating which helps protect your home and roof in the event of a fire.
