Asphalt | Fiberglass Composition Shingles

If you are looking for a classic, rugged, or timeless look, composition shingles may be the choice for you. Composition shingles have a fiberglass reinforcing mat at the center. Asphalt Composition shingles offer multi-level protection and are durable, reliable and easy to maintain throughout the life of the roof. They all come with a Class “A” fire rating and have warranties available in 25 year and lifetime. They can be separated into three categories: 3-Tab, Laminates/Dimensional and Designer shingles.

They can be purchased in a wide variety colors and thicknesses.

Shingles may be produced in a single layer or two or more layers. The latter generally are known as laminated strip shingles, or architectural shingles, and they have a three dimensional appearance.

All shingle roof systems are installed over an underlayment.  The underlayment (or “felt paper” as it is frequently called) is installed over the roof deck before the application of asphalt shingles. An underlayment performs two primary functions: it provides temporary weather protection until the asphalt shingles are installed, and it provides a secondary weatherproofing barrier if moisture infiltrates the asphalt shingles. Felt paper is typically installed in 15lb or 30lb sheets and are installed using roofing nails.  An alternative underlayment is a peal n stick sheet such as Ice and Water Shield and it is fully adhered to the roofing substructure.

The warranty period available for composition shingles ranges from 20 years to a lifetime.

Asphalt – 3-Tab Shingles

20, 25 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty

The least expensive option is known as “3-Tab” shingles. This type of roofing has been refined over the years. It appears as a one layer product with a distinct pattern of tabs. This pattern is caused by vertical slots notched into the visible part of each shingle, splitting the lower half of the shingle into three tabs.

Asphalt – Laminates / Dimensional Shingles

Lifetime Limited Manufacturer’s Warranty

Laminates/Dimensional shingles also known as architectural shingles, are created by bonding or laminating two asphalt shingles together (doubling the material thickness), giving them a distinct three-dimensional appearance similar to that of wood shakes. They are a more recent variant and superior to the basic 3-Tab. Laminates have become the common choice in composition roofing, are considered more attractive, are heavier in weight, and have longer life spans.

Most shingle manufacturers produce a line of designer shingles that offer the homeowner a variety of more sophisticated and unique design options. Typically, designer shingles are heavy weight, multi-layer laminates that provide deeper shadow lines, richer texture, and are physically larger than standard Laminates. Some are also made to simulate more expensive roofing materials like slate.
