If you have ever traveled around the world, you probably saw roofs made from a wide variety of materials. Composition shingles are still widely used on homes around the country. Commonly known as asphalt shingles, they come in two types, differentiated by the base material. They consist of either an organic fiber mat or fiberglass core. Each type is impregnated with asphalt and coated with mineral granules to add color and texture. An adhesive back combined with nails, tacks or staples is the fastening method used. You will most likely find a “good/better/best” selection. Compare warranties (number of years the roof should last) when shopping. Shingles are available in the common 3-tab style or newer architectural design that replicates other roofing materials such as wood or slate. We are happy to install a composition roof on your home with the wide variety of shingles to choose from.
