Choosing the right Asphalt Composition Shingle for your home
The asphalt composition shingle is the most popular type of residential roofing material in America. About 80% of the homes in America are covered in shingles. They are economical and can be purchased in a wide range of designs, textures, colors and sizes. Because they are easily cut and fastened, asphalt roof shingles are compatible with all kinds of roofing accessories. They are suitable for all kinds of roofing slopes. Asphalt roof shingles are also widely available, making them easily repaired.
They come in two types, fiberglass and organic. The fiberglass variety incorporate a base layer of glass fiber. Characteristics of fiberglass make them more resistant to heat and as a result are common in the South. The organic variety incorporate a base layer of paper material. Less resistant to the effects of heat, organic shingles are popular in the North. Attic ventilation can increase the life span of both types of shingle. Most shingle roofs survive 20-45 years.
