Residential Roofing: Shingle

Asphalt Shingle Roofing Systems

Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used type of shingle across North America. Today’s asphalt shingles are reinforced with a fiberglass mat, and can range in life expectancy from 10 to 20 years for typical shingle.

Great improvements to the asphalt shingle have made, resulting in more durable product know as laminated shingles also known as "dimensional" or "architectural" shingles.
Those shingles are also made of asphalt but differ from the "three tab" shingle design. They were designed to add character, color and depth to the roof aesthetics. They are made of multiple staggered layers of material, with a range of durability, typically 15 to 50 years. Laminate shingles are thicker and heavier than ‘’three tab’’ shingles, but are more resistant to wind. From a distance, some of the high-grade laminate shingles have the look of an expansive slate or shake material, by incorporated angled or rounded tabs, shadow lines and variant color patterns. Asphalt shingles come in a variety of colors and styles. Individual shingles may be replaced if damaged.
