Shingle Roofing

Types of Roof Shingles

for Midland, Odessa & Big Spring, TX

Asphalt shingles are the dominant roofing option for homes, largely because they are inexpensive, provide superior durability and come in a variety of styles. Regardless of color or style, asphalt shingles are all manufactured in a similar way using a short list of key materials including fiberglass, asphalt, and granules.

Fiberglass: Shingles are reinforced with a thin fiberglass mat, made from glass fibers that are bound together with the help of stable resins and binders.

Asphalt: Asphalt is the main water-resistant factor in shingles. The asphalt is mixed with a fine mineral powder to increase weather resistance and enable the shingle layer to meet the highest standards for fire hazard resistance.

Granules: The most visible aspect of asphalt roofing shingles is the stone granule surfacing. Granules are processed into a variety of colors to give them the long-lasting colors used on the exposed part of the roof.
