Introduction to Asphalt Single

Summary description:


An asphalt shingle is a type of wall or roof shingle that uses asphalt for waterproofing. It is one of the most widely used roofing covers in North America because it has a relatively inexpensive up-front cost and is fairly simple to install.

There are two main categories of asphalt shingles: organic and fiberglass.

Organic Shingles:

These are the oldest type of asphalt roofing tiles. They consist of a cellular fiber substrate (recycled paper) impregnated with asphalt and compressed under high pressure.
More flexible than fiberglass shingles, they are easier to install in cold weather, more tear-resistant, and able to better hide imperfections on the roof's deck. Heavier and therefore more resistant to strong winds, they also withstand changes in temperature.

Fiberglass Shingles:

Nowadays, most asphalt shingles have a layer of glass fibers instead of paper. They are referred to as composition shingles. Fiberglass shingles are lighter than their organic counterparts because less asphalt is used during manufacturing. They are less expensive, more heat-resistant, and the ''feet'', or notched ends, are less likely to lift, a problem often encountered on older roofs.
