Asphalt roof shingles are the absolute most popular residential roof shingles in the United States. More home builders and homeowners choose asphalt shingles because they are cost-effective and easily installed. Most residential roof pitches can use various styles of asphalt shingles, and they come in many attractive colors to match a home’s décor. Mid-Atlantic Roofing Supply is your multi-state network of residential roofing centers with top brand products and accessories. We carry a wide variety of asphalt shingles for all your residential roofing needs.
Asphalt shingles are extremely durable and water resistant, making them a popular choice for many homes. They are made from organic or fiberglass matting that is coated with asphalt for superior bonding and waterproofing, then coated with a layer of ceramic granules. These granules protect the asphalt layer against damaging UV rays, help make them fire-resistant and give shingles their color. The completed mats are baked and cut into desired sizes for installation.
There are three basic types of asphalt shingles:
- Strip (3-tab) shingles
- Dimensional (architectural or laminate) shingles
- Luxury shingles
Within these types are hundreds of styles and colors to match virtually any home. Speak with a team member at your local Mid-Atlantic Roofing Supply for help with product selection and more information.
Wholesale Architectural Asphalt Shingles
Among all the types of asphalt shingles, dimensional or architectural shingles are the most prevalent. They are made with multiple layers of asphalt that are fused together in a multi-dimensional form, replicating wood shake or natural slate type coverings. They are thicker and more durable shingles and have a better warranty than most other types of asphalt shingles.
