Asphalt Shingles Roofing

What are asphalt roofing shingles and what is asphalt’s role in roofing shingles?

Asphalt roofing shingles are the most commonly used covering on residential properties in the market.

Asphalt’s primary purpose in roofing shingles is to serve as a waterproofing agent.  Asphalt also holds the granules in place and adds to the overall strength of the roofing shingle.  The best asphalt will stay flexible and will not dry out or become hard or brittle for the expected life of the roofing shingle.

There are three major categories of Asphalt Roofing Shingles available in the market:

Strip Asphalt Roofing Shingles

Strip asphalt roofing shingles are single-layered asphalt roofing shingles typically designed to look like slate.  Strip roofing shingles are usually the lightest weight asphalt roofing shingles available in the market.  Built on a tough fiber glass base, each shingle provides resistance to blow-off and tearing.  Strip roofing shingles are used primarily by home builders manufacturing economy priced homes or purchased by homeowners as replacement roofing shingles for homes that already have strip shingles on the roof.

Dimensional Asphalt Roofing Shingles

Dimensional asphalt roofing shingles are manufactured as multi-layered products and provide a thicker and richer appearance on the roof (a multi-dimensional look).  Dimensional roofing shingles typically are heavier weight than strip roofing shingles and usually have improved warranty protections, which can range from 30-years to Lifetime.

Premium Asphalt Roofing Shingles

Premium asphalt roofing shingles are usually described as laminated shingles that have a differentiated appearance or functionality from traditional dimensional asphalt roofing shingles.  These products may have designs that mimic “old-world” roofing shingles, like natural slate or natural shake roofing shingles

Metal Roofing

The benefits offered by today’s metal roofs allow homeowners to upgrade their homes with products of lasting value. Metal roofs provide the following lasting benefits:

  • Proven performance expectation of 50 years or more.
  • Beautiful styles to match any home or neighborhood
  • Interlocking panels for maximum wind resistance
  • Fire resistance
  • Energy efficiency by keeping homes cooler
  • Low weight to help preserve structural integrity and life

History of metal roofing stretches back to 970 B.C., when the temple in Jerusalem was equipped with a copper roof. This particular style of roof developed an island identity much later when it became popular in the Virgin Islands. There are two generic types of metal roofing systems for residential use: concealed fastener systems and exposed fastener systems. Generally, exposed fastener systems cost less than concealed fastener systems. Depending on the aesthetic look you are trying to achieve, NEW SUNRISE ROOFING has trained professional contractors and we can help you choose the system right for you and your roof design.
