When talking about a potential roof replacement, various options are usually brought up by local roofers which include wooden shakes, slate shingles, clay shingles, metal sheeting, a living roof, or asphalt shingles. The most common choice, either of the three-tab variety or architectural/laminate, is asphalt shingles. This is done in large part because they are less costly and come with an enviable guaranteed lifetime. But even after having selected asphalt shingles, there are still choices to be made. Depending on the circumstances, different materials can be used to produce different effects, all depending on the intentions of the homeowner.
Roofing Shingles comes in Many Varieties
Asphalt shingles are available in two different varieties, namely organic and fiberglass. Shingles of fiberglass are composed of a woven mat base, covered by a coating of waterproof asphalt, and finished with a topping of granules of ceramic which act as a shield for the shingle against harmful ultraviolet rays. Due to the incorporation of fiberglass in its construction, not as much asphalt is required to maintain the same level of strength and durability while, simultaneously, achieving a lighter and thinner roofing material. These were originally created in the 1980’s and have become the most commonly chosen roofing material by both homeowners and contractors.
Alternatively, organic shingles are constructed from a layer of recycled felt paper which has been saturated in asphalt for waterproofing purposes. It is then covered with adhesive asphalt where ceramic granules are then embedded. Organic shingles are typically thicker, heavier, and more expensive than fiberglass. They are also extra rugged and flexible, but may warp over a period of time due to their absorbency. Despite their name, the additional 40 percent asphalt content makes them not as environmentally friendly. Both fiberglass and organic types of asphalt shingles usually measure 12″ x 36″ and can be acquired for either three-tab shingles or architectural shingles.
