Composition Roofing

An American invention first used in 1901, asphalt shingles are the most widely used, easily recognizable product in North America. Technology has improved since the advent of the asphalt shingle, and organic material (originally cotton rags) has been replaced by more durable fiberglass. Asphalt shingles are produced in widely varying qualities and can be applied to any sloped roof with no additional attic or substrate bracing.

Some manufacturers offer impact resistant shingles by using SBS (styrene based rubber) during production. These products carry Class A fire ratings and Class 4 impact resistance ratings. These ratings usually qualify for discounted insurance premiums with underwriters. Contact your insurance provider to find out how much you could save.

Designer Shingles

Laminate Shingles

Laminate shingles are an enhanced stronger version of their 3 tab counterparts. Both are composed of a fiberglass mat with a layer of asphalt granules. Laminate shingles utilize double-layers of shingles and are dimensionally cut to achieve an architectural look.
