Asphalt roofing shingles are not only a cost effective solution to your roofing needs, but will complement the beauty and charm of your home. Asphalt roofing shingles are available in a variety of options with many colors, textures and styles to choose from.
Today, asphalt composition shingles are composed of a reinforced base mat, a modified asphalt binder and ceramic granules. They are manufactured with self-sealing adhesive strips and a wide nailing zone to effectively speed up the time of installation. These modern day shingles provide a high level of durability in a wide array of colors to compliment any home.
Asphalt shingles are produced by many manufacturers; two of the leading manufacturers in the industry are GAF and CertainTeed. GAF Materials Corporation was founded in 1886 and has become one of the largest roofing manufacturers in the country. In 2012 GAF Materials Corporation was the first company to offer a lifetime limited warranty on an entire roofing system. Its vast selection of shingles means that you’re certain to find the right combination of style, color, and price to suit your taste.
