When it comes to selecting a residential roofing system for your home, asphalt roofing shingles provide beautiful, affordable, and reliable roofing solution for any residential roof. Asphalt shingles are able to be fully customized and come in a wide variety of shapes and colors. In addition to having a variety of styles, textures and colors to choose from, asphalt shingles are cost-effective, durable and easy to maintain. Asphalt shingles are composed of: a base material, either organic felt or glass-fiber mat; asphalt and fillers; and surfacing material, generally in the form of mineral granules, which all combine to help provide protection from impact and UV degradation and improve the fire resistance of the shingles.
