Most homeowners in America rely on the security of classic asphalt shingles to keep their home safe and dry. This versatile roofing option is easy to install and even easier to maintain. Contact us to learn more about the different asphalt shingles available for your roof.

America’s Favorite Roofing Option

Asphalt shingles were invented at the turn of the 20th century. The first asphalt roofs were made from felt soaked in coal tar and coated with sand. Initially, entire sheets of felt were used for roofing. It was only in 1903 that Henry M. Reynolds, an entrepreneur from Michigan, started cutting the individual shingles that we use today.

The asphalt shingle was one of the most successful American inventions of the 1900s; within 30 years of the product’s creation, more than 11 million shingles were being produced every year. Today,that number has increased to over 130 million. Mr. Reynold’s original design has been improved over the years, but we still use the same basic model to create strong and durable roofs for homeowners across the world.

Waterproof and Airtight

Asphalt shingles are affordable and effective; they’re also easy to install and replace. These are just a few of the features that make asphalt shingles one of the most popular roofing options:

  • Water resistance: Asphalt shingles are designed to keep leaks out of your home. Each shingle is soaked in a layer of waterproof asphalt; shingles are then laid tightly against each other to create a seal against rain and moisture.
  • Fire resistance: When asphalt shingles were first invented, they were quickly adopted as a fire-resistant alternative to the wooden shingles that were standard at the time. Modern asphalt shingles are infused with fiberglass and other heat-resistant materials for additional safety.
  • Wind resistance: Decades of careful design have resulted in the combination of materials and construction methods used for the modern asphalt shingle. When installed correctly, an asphalt shingle roof should stay together in even the most hectic wind conditions.
  • Light resistance: A constant barrage of sunlight doesn’t just heat up your home in the summer; it also warps shingles and increases the chance of damage to your roof’s internal layers. Asphalt shingles are coated in a layer of reflective granules that diffuse sunlight and reduce its impact on your home.
  • Damage resistance: An individual asphalt shingle is surprisingly durable, but the true beauty of asphalt shingles is how easy they are to replace. From falling tree branches to hail damage, there are few roof catastrophes that can’t be solved with a fresh shingle installation.
