Asphalt Shingle Roofing Repair and Installation in Paragould Arkansas
Asphalt shingles are the most commonly used shingles in asphalt roof repair and installation. It comes in two types, fiberglass or composite. The shingles composition is referred to as matting. Fiberglass shingles have tough embedded fiberglass matting, as opposed to composite which has organic matting. Since the invention of the fiberglass mat, the use of organic shingles has been diminishing.
Types of Asphalt Shingles
There are four different types of asphalt shingles that can be found
– large individual shingles
– interlocking shingles
– strip shingles
– laminated shingles.
Based on the type of look and style you like, you can choose type of shingle you desire. Shingles can also be selected by durability to various weather and exposure ranges from basic to intense weather conditions the roof potentially will be under. Interlocking shingles, for example, are an excellent choice in areas that experience high-wind conditions. All of these shingle types also are available in many different colors and textures to fit with a homes style.
Fiberglass shingles are the most commonly chosen material. Manufacturing techniques and variations from company to company can be significant. So we recommend that you understand the basic fundamentals of what makes a good quality shingle, and know what to look for. Once you know what to look for in a shingle, the quality of the mat, the asphalt and the granules are just a few of the features that will separate a good quality shingle from a lesser quality shingle. Fiberglass shingles have a higher fire rating than most organic shingles, an they also come in a variety of shapes and colors. Most fiberglass shingles come with a 30-year warranty or longer and is less expensive than the composite shingle.

Metal vs. Asphalt Roofing
Whether you’re replacing your current roof or undergoing new construction, you know the importance of quality roofing material. The type of material you select must keep your home secure; otherwise, it’s pointless. Many of today’s homeowners are torn between metal roofing and asphalt shingles.
You should know that metal roofing can be installed over an existing roof, which cuts down on total costs. Metal is also lighter, is more energy efficient, and requires less maintenance than most roofing materials. Asphalt roofing, on the other hand, comes in a variety of colors, is more cheaply priced, and performs quite well during the winter. It’s vital that you perform adequate research beforehand. We may offer our professional advice, but, in the end, the choice is yours to make.
