Asphalt Shingles  

Asphalt composition shingles are by far the most popular choice for all home types. They are affordable and are available in a wide range of colors, designs, sizes, and textures allowing most people to always find a shingle that suits their taste. Today’s asphalt shingles are made using a fiberglass reinforced mat that is bonded with a resin and then coated with asphalt. On top of the asphalt, there are exposed ceramic granules that block harmful ultra-violet light, which would otherwise deteriorate the shingle. Architectural shingles are what most people are wanting for their home. Sometimes called ‘dimensional’ shingles, they are thicker, stronger, and have varying shapes and sizes to make it more aesthetically pleasing. They were designed to mimic the appearance of traditional wood shake shingles and use random shadow lines to help achieve that. Since they are thicker and more durable, the manufacturer warranties are longer than those of a 3-tab shingle.

Your roof needs to breathe. Hot air trapped in your attic can drastically shorten the lifespan of a shingle roof. Without a way to escape, the hot air will essentially cook the shingles causing blistering. Blisters pop causing the protective granules to dislodge, leaving the asphalt unprotected from harmful UV rays. This, combined with natural weathering, will cause leaks and damage to your home. Proper ventilation will also reduce your home’s cooling load and relieve strain on your air conditioning system, saving money. RGS will be able to figure out the best solution for your ventilation issues.
