Types of Shingle Roofing for Houses
Shingle Roofing is made through different roofing materials; each offer advantages and circumstances.
- Composition Shingles: a composition shingle is a popular choice for homeowners, making up 85 percent of all residential roofing across the nation. The most common design choice for composition shingles is the three tab design which is affordable, easy to maintain, and can last decades when properly maintained. The following is a listing of the materials used in the process of shingle roofing:
- Fiberglass Shingles: A fiberglass asphalt shingle makes use of glass sheet as a base. That base is sealed and coated with asphalt from top to bottom. This creates a waterproof finished shingle. Ceramic granules are also added to the shingle.
- Organic Asphalt Shingles: Organic shingles are made of waste paper. These shingles are coated with asphalt. Finally, they finish with an adhesive asphalt coating. These types of shingles, like fiberglass shingles, may also have ceramic granules added, are waterproof and very durable.
How Do They Compare?
In general both are excellent roofing choices for shingle roofing. Fiberglass shingles are stronger than organic ones but not as durable as their counterpart. They also tend to react poorly to colder climates (not a worry in the Valley of the Sun). By comparison, organic shingles are heavier. They also lack the fire resistance that fiberglass tiles possess due to the materials used in their creation.
