Asphalt Shingles
By Marcus Peterson

Asphalt shingles are the most commonly sold
shingles in the
industry, and statistics show that they can
be easily termed the
most dominant variety on the roofing market.

Relatively cheaper than most other types of
shingles, (roughly
at around $0.80 per square foot) they are
vastly used all across
the USA and Canada. But, as far as costs of
asphalt shingles are
concerned, they would generally vary
according to geographical
location, altitude of a building, and slant
of the roof.

Asphalt shingles come in a wide range of
colors and designs and
most are quite durable. Records say that
these shingles can me
easily maintained and repaired as well.

Broadly available in two basic types like
organic and
fiberglass, they can be further classified
into a number of
other types like the basic three-tab shingle,
the no cutout
shingle, the dimensional shingle, the
angle-lap shingle, the
interlocking shingle, and others that look
like cedar or slate.

Organic shingles are mostly used in colder
temperatures like in
North America and Canada. Fiberglass
shingles, on the other hand
are popular in warmer temperatures like in
the southern and
western American states.

Before making one’s choice of asphalt
shingles, it is extremely
important to know and decide what one will be
buying. Proper
budgeting, the climates of the place, slope
of one’s roof, and
other issues have to be carefully considered.
The warranty of a
particular product should also be reviewed
and judged properly.
It is always best to buy shingles that meet
manufacturing
standards perfectly. This may sometimes be
heavier on one’s
pocketbook, but one should rather be safe
than sorry.

Installation of asphalt shingles is fairly
hassle-free. Although
professional roofing experts should always be
consulted, asphalt
shingles maybe installed by the house owner
himself, even if he
isn’t an expert. The shingles can be easily
installed on any
existing roof.

Asphalt shingles with their easy
availability, durability, and
fairly simple installation process, are quite
naturally the most
widely used and economically feasible roofing
option for
millions.
