What Are Asphalt Shingles?

These shingles make up one of the most versatile and durable roofing systems that exist. They are a combination of asphalt with fiberglass or natural materials, such as cellulose or wood. There are three types of shingles to choose from: tab, luxury, and dimensional. Three-tab asphalt shingles are the most affordable option. They are widely available and cost about $160 per square, approximately 100 square feet of roofing material. They lay flat and have three tabs on every single strip. Luxury shingles are larger and are made to look like slate. Dimensional shingles are the most popular and durable type. They offer you a random pattern and this roof type looks like a wood shake roof. These shingles are thicker, have several layers, and last twice as long as cheaper asphalt shingles.

Why Should You Invest in Asphalt Shingles?

Asphalt shingles are popular for several reasons. They are fireproof, waterproof, and can withstand snow and hail storms up to a certain magnitude. If a homeowner wants additional protection, they can get class 4 impact rating shingles that can endure severe weather conditions, but these are usually the priciest solution. Additionally, buying Energy Star-eligible asphalt shingles may be enough to qualify for tax credits.

This type of roofing comes in numerous styles and colors. In many cases, asphalt shingles replicate the appearance of other, more expensive styles at a fraction of the cost. They are also comparatively easy to install—East Texas Roof Works can even install them over existing shingles if the roof deck can hold it and there’s only one layer down.

Shingles Are Always In

There are a variety of materials that shingles can be made out of. Some of your options are slate, wood, metal, solar, and architectural shingles. However, asphalt shingles remain at the top of homeowners’ and business owners’ lists. They are one of the most cost-effective roofing solutions in the market. No matter which shingles you choose, East Texas Roof Works has you covered.
