Asphalt Roofing Springfield
One of the most widely used roofing materials in America, asphalt shingles are known for their affordability, variety and ease of installation. They have been used on roofs for over 100 years and come in a wide variety of styles and colors. Asphalt shingles are typically made of a base of fiberglass or organic material such as cellulose, which is then saturated with asphalt to make it waterproof.
With asphalt roofing Springfield contractors typically recommend fiberglass over organic shingles because of their superior fire protection. Typically with asphalt roofing Springfield homeowners will use 3-tab or architectural shingles. 3-tab shingles are thinner, lighter and less expensive than architectural shingles. Architectural shingles are two layers of shingle bonded together, making them thicker and tougher as well as producing a more dimensional appearance on your roof. Though they are costly, architectural shingles can last 20 to 30 years, and sometimes as long as 50 years.
For Springfield asphalt roofing, we recommend architectural shingles. Not only are they more durable, they’re more suited to Springfield’s variable weather conditions. Architectural asphalt shingles can withstand winds up to 120 mph and can endure snow and rain better than 3-tab asphalt shingles.
