Why Asphalt Shingles
An asphalt shingle begins as a fiberglass mat that’s covered in asphalt and then surface-coated with special ceramic granules. These granules protect the inner mat from sun and weather damage. Shingles are commonly manufactured in two types: three-tab and dimensional. The classic three-tab shingle is distinguished by cut-outs along its lower edge that make one shingle look like three separate pieces when installed. Dimensional shingles offer an additional layer of shingle that’s laminated on to add durability and great depth to the finished surface of a roof. Here are some advantages of using asphalt shingles for Alexandria roofing.
- Affordability. Because asphalt shingles can be produced in high volume and quickly installed, thus lowering the cost of labor, they offer value that can’t be beat by any other material. While they may not last quite as long, their affordability makes up the difference.
- Performance. Asphalt shingles stand up well to extreme temperatures, high winds, water, ice and fire. This is why manufacturers can offer lifetime warranties on premium products.
- Minimal maintenance. When properly installed, asphalt shingles require little to no maintenance, and are easily repaired if damaged.
- Versatility. The strength and flexibility of asphalt shingles allows them to be installed on a wide range of roof structures. They also come in many color variations that mimic the look of wood, slate and other high-end materials.
