Asphalt roofing shingles are made from a fiberglass roofing felt mat which is saturated in asphalt and impregnated with ceramic granules to give the asphalt felts UV protection from degradation from exposure to the sun and elements. Asphalt shingles come in both 3-tab and dimensional versions and in a variety of colors. Warranties on shingles can vary from a 25- to a 50-year shingle. The primary difference is the thickness of the mat and the amount of asphalt and modifiers added to the asphalt to give it more flexibility and longevity.
Choosing the right roofing contractor for your shingle project can mean the difference between getting 5-10 years out of your shingle roof, and getting the full life expectancy. An improperly installed shingle roof will fail well before the warranty period of the shingles.
