Chances are that when you think of a roof, you picture a typical asphalt shingle roof. This type of roofing has been used for years for many business and homes. The shingles are called asphalt shingles or composition shingles because the layers of material that make them up are bonded together with asphalt and ceramic. They may also include fiberglass, cellulose or mineral granules. This process makes them very strong and cost effective. The shingles contain particles that reflect ultraviolet light, allowing them to retain their coloring and integrity for many years. In fact, under normal weather conditions, asphalt shingles can last up to 20 years. In some cases, a properly installed and maintained roof can last almost 30 years. Asphalt shingles are easy to install, come in a variety of natural colors and can mimic the appearance of slate or wood shakes. An asphalt shingle roof can compliment the appearance of any home or office. Generally, because asphalt shingles can retain water they are recommended for roofs with steep pitches, where moisture easily runs off.
