Asphalt Shingles / Roofing Shingle/ Roof Shingle / Fiberglass Asphalt Shingle Roof

Asphalt roofing shingles are made from fiberglass, recycled materials and asphalt. Their unique construction gives them the durability to last for over decades. Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing materials for steep roofs used today. They are made into many layers. The top layer consists of granules imbedded in asphalt and a seal-down strip. In the core of a shingle there is a fiberglass mat. The longevity of a shingle depends on the quality of the asphalt, the amount of asphalt used, and the quality of the fiberglass mat.

There are many different colors, textures, and patterns. The two styles of shingles are single-layer shingles and laminated shingles. There are many shapes of single-layer shingle, such as 3-tab shingles, square shingles (Mosaic pattern), rhombic shingles (Gothic pattern), scale-shaped shingles etc.

Asphalt shingles will fit any style because they are available in a variety of colors and patterns as well. Many homeowners like the variety that the roofing shingles offer because they are able to match the color of the shingles with the color of their home. This gives their home a uniformed appearance that is particularly attractive to many homeowners. When choosing roofing shingles for a home it is important to take the color of the shingle into account. The lighter and neutral colors have tiny granules imbedded in them which helps the shingles reflect sunlight and can thus keep a home cooler during the hot summer months. Keeping the home cooler is ideal because it will help to drive down the monthly energy bills that need to be paid. With proper ventilation and composition shingles, a homeowner could see their energy bill drop within the first year of the shingling.

With extensive product warranties of up to 50 years, KRS appraised the Asphalt Shingles form the perfect lightweight roofing system. Whether it be building a new home or reroofing an existing one, KRS asphalt shingles provide the idea solution for both residential and commercial applications. Roofing Shingle is also an ideal roofing solution for new home or building, or if you are reroofing an existing property.

When choosing the right roofing shingle for a home the homeowner has the option of plain shingles or fancier shingles that are called shadow shingles. The shadow shingles give the shingle the appearance of being three dimensional and similar to wooden shakes. Some homeowners choose the shadow shingles because they feel that they give their home a classier and more refined look. The shadow shingles are available in a variety of colors and are a bit more expensive than the plain asphalt shingles.

Roofing shingles should not be installed during the cold, harsh winter months. It is ideal to have the shingles installed during warmer months so that they are fit properly to the home and do not become damaged.
