What Is an Asphalt Shingle?
You will see asphalt roofing shingles on most roofs when you drive down the street. The average person never wonders about the anatomy of a shingle. An asphalt shingle, of course, has an asphalt coating that protects your roof from rain, snow, sleet, and hail. There is more to it than that, though. Asphalt shingles have a base mat that usually consists of fiberglass. This acts as the shingle’s skeleton. Then, the manufacturer coats the mat with asphalt. Finally, mineral granules cover the top of the shingle. These minerals protect your roof from the sun’s UV rays and contain some fire-resistant properties.
Benefits of an Asphalt Shingle Roof
Asphalt roofing shingles are a very attractive option when choosing the materials for your next roof. There are several reasons people tend to go with asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles often give you the most bang for your buck. They are an affordable roofing option that offers many advantages over more pricy options like wood, clay, slate, and plastics. The main advantages of asphalt roof shingles are:
- Color and Style Options – Asphalt shingles come in various colors, and we can arrange them in many different patterns. This lets you create unique designs.
- Energy Efficient – If you pick the right color of shingles, they can effectively reduce your energy consumption by reflecting a significant amount of light away from your home.
- Impact Resistance – Many companies make asphalt shingles that are designed to resist the impact of severe weather and high winds.
- Fire Resistance – Some asphalt shingles have a Class A fire-resistance rating, meaning they can protect your home from potential fire hazards that may fall onto your roof.
- Easy to Repair – When there is damage to a section of shingles, it is easy to replace a single section at a time. Many other options require widescale repairs, even if a small section is compromised.
