The terms “asphalt” shingle and “composition” shingle are general terms for the same thing. The term “composition” is used because the shingles are a composite product made from either a fiberglass or a cellulose mat, and asphalt and minerals, as opposed to a single material, such as wood shingles or clay tiles.
All modern shingles manufactured in North America have mats made of interwoven fiberglass strands, so you may also hear them called “fiberglass” shingles. A modern shingle consists of a fiberglass mat embedded in asphalt, and covered with granules on the surface that faces the weather. The mat, asphalt and granules act together to form a durable, flexible and waterproof assembly.
Asphalt shingles cover more homes in America than any other roofing material. This roofing material is easy to install, provides excellent protection and it is often the least expensive roofing choice. My House Renovation offers a wide variety of asphalt shingle styles and colors that are an affordable option for your Sacramento roofing system.
An asphalt shingle consists of a fiberglass or organic mat coated with asphalt, then covered with colored mineral granules for protection against the elements. Asphalt shingles are available in a range of grades. The better the grade, the longer the life expectancy, which can range from 15 to 50 years. Here’s more about the advantages of this roofing material.
