Types of Asphalt Shingles
Asphalt shingles typically come with a base mat that is made of either fiberglass or organic cellulose fibers. Organic shingles can be made from recycled paper or wood fibers, while fiberglass shingles are composed entirely of glass fibers at different lengths. Both mats are coated with a layer of asphalt, and a layer of weather-resistant granules are embedded into the top of the shingle. These granules help to protect the asphalt from damage caused by UV rays and weather, and also provide the shingle with color and texture.
Whether organic-based or fiberglass-based, asphalt shingles come in a variety of styles.
3-Tab Shingles are an economical, easy to install style of shingle that is generally three times as long as it is wide. These shingles are named for the cutouts that appear on the visible edge, providing additional depth and dimension to the roof.
Architectural Shingles are manufactured with an additional layer of asphalt and have a thicker base material. They are also referred to as laminated or three-dimensional shingles because they create additional depth and can provide a custom effect.
