Asphalt Shingles

  • The most widely used roofing material is the composition shingle. These shingles come in a variety of colors, designs and sizes. Depending on the product, the warranty can be anywhere from 15 to 50 years
  • Composite roof options are three-tab and architectural
  • Architectural shingles start with a heavier mat base than a standard 3-tab shingle typically fiberglass that has been coated with asphalt. Multiple layers are then overlapped and laminated together to create the distinctive texture. The finished product weighs about 100-lbs. more per “square” (a roofer’s term for 100 square feet of roof area) than regular shingles.
  • If you currently have a regular shingle roof, most professionals we know recommend upgrading to architectural shingles when it’s time for a roof replacement
