Asphalt shingles are the most widely used roofing material in North America. They can protect your home from the elements for decades with minimal maintenance and come in hundreds of styles and colors.

It’s readily available and a great value

Asphalt shingles offer a wide range of styles and are widely available in the U.S. as well as being easy to install. This makes them a popular choice for roofing contractors who want to offer their customers a great option. Asphalt shingles are one of the most affordable roofing options. If an existing roof deck (the structure beneath the roofing system) has not been damaged, asphalt shingles can be used to replace it. This will reduce the cost and time required for tearing off the old roofing. This is an option that can save money on your roofing project.

There are many types of roof shingles

There are three main types of asphalt roofing products today: strip shingles and dimensional roof shingles. To choose the best roofing shingle for your home, it is important to know the differences between each type.

*A word about terminology: Asphalt shingles can also be called composition shingles or composite shingles. These terms refer to the same thing. Because the shingles are made of a combination of a fiberglass mat or cellulose mat, asphalt and mineral granules, the term “composition” has been used. This is different from clay tiles or wood shake shingles, which are made of a single material.

Strip Shingles  

Strip shingles, also known as 3-tab or strips shingles due to the way the shingle is cut, are the most basic type of asphalt shingles. They are made of one layer of asphalt. Their flat appearance gives them a slate-like look. They are lighter and more affordable than other asphalt roofing shingles because they only have one layer. Before the introduction of designer shingles in 1980s, strips shingles were the most popular roofing shingle on the market. Strip shingles are most commonly used by home builders who make inexpensive homes or homeowners who want to replace roofing shingles that have been installed with strip shingles.

The Landmark(r), shingles by CertainTeed are an example of a dimensional roofing product.
