The Superior Asphalt Roofing Contractor in Central Florida
Asphalt shingles are one of the most commonly used roofing materials in residential roof replacement and new construction. They are made from a combination of fiberglass, asphalt, and ceramic. The fiberglass gives shingles their durability, while the asphalt (which is combined with various minerals) provides the shingles with their resistance against water. Finally, the ceramic component helps provide the shingles with their color and UV light deflection. Although they’re called “shingles” and they certainly look like shingles, they tend to be installed in sheets that are layered onto the roof.
The Benefits of Asphalt Shingles
Asphalt shingles continue to be one of the most popular roofing choices amongst homeowners throughout the country for the following reasons:
- Affordable – Asphalt shingles tend to be one of the most affordable roofing materials available.
- Durable – Asphalt shingles are resistant to fire as well as wind as a result of its fiberglass component. They are also water-resistant. Even if they tear or crack, it’s not difficult or expensive to replace damaged asphalt shingles.
- Easy to install – Because they come in sheets, asphalt shingles are easy to install. They are also very lightweight, which means they remain easy to install even if the slope of your roof is steep.
