Homeowners can count on us to install high-quality composition shingles.
You may be familiar with asphalt shingles, as they’re among the most commonly used roofing materials in the industry. Asphalt is a highly viscous semi-solid or liquid form of petroleum that’s used to form individual shingles. The composition of this material makes it highly effective against moisture penetration and wind damage, so it’s a durable option for protecting a residential structure. But if you hear roofing professionals talking about composition shingles or a composition roof, it’s helpful to know that these terms are typically synonymous with asphalt shingles.
Composition shingles come in a range of colors, styles, and designs. They’re a versatile addition to the roof on any home, and countless property owners choose them when undergoing roofing installation and replacement. Here in the greater Tyler, Texas area and surrounding cities, homeowners can count on our team at Aspire Roofing and Gutters to install high-quality composition shingles.
The three main types of composition shingles include three-tab, architectural, and luxury. Each has its own pros and cons, as well as its own unique appearance to complement a home. Three-tab shingles are the most commonly used, and the name refers to the three tabs on each shingle. They’re cost-effective and visually appealing, while providing the durability needed against the elements.
Architectural shingles feature multiple layers, bonded together for enhanced durability. They also have a unique appearance that enhances the dimension of the roof. Luxury shingles are made from asphalt but look more like slate or other high-end materials.
