When it comes to residential roofing, Asphalt shingles is the most common product used today in the United States. Asphalt shingles is the least expensive materials available for steep slope applications. They are very durable and are available in a wide variety of colors and textures.
Asphalt shingles consist of either an organic (wood fiber or cellulose) or fiberglass mat which has been saturated with asphalt and covered with colored mineral granules. In climates where fungus growth is a potential problem, granules treated with algaecide are available. "Self-sealing" shingles have an additional strip of adhesive on the underside. The adhesive is activated by the sun's heat after installation and "seals" each shingle to the one below it, providing extra wind uplift resistance for the roof system.
Shingles were once available in only one thickness, but today many manufacturers offer shingles where several layers have been laminated together to produce three-dimensional profiles and appealing shadow lines. These are known as "dimensional" or "architectural" shingles.
There are a number of things to consider when selecting a new roof for your home. Of course, cost and durability are at the top of the list, but aesthetics and architectural style are important too. The right roof can enhance the beauty of your home and increase its value. With our experience and variety of choices, Spray-Tech is the right choice for you.
