Asphalt roofing shingles are the most commonly used roofing system in the US. The primary purpose of an asphalt shingle roof is to serve as a waterproofing agent. Asphalt shingles are made of fiberglass sandwiched between asphalt and ceramic granules. The asphalt holds the granules in place and adds to the overall strength of the roofing shingle. The best asphalt will stay flexible and will not dry out or become hard or brittle for the expected life of the roofing shingle. Asphalt shingles are a good choice if you're looking for style at a budget. Asphalt shingles comes in two different types. The first type is strip “3-Tab” asphalt roofing shingles, which are single-layered asphalt roofing shingles typically designed to look like slate. Strip roofing shingles are usually the lightest weight asphalt roofing shingles available on the market. They are built on a tough fiber glass base with each shingle providing resistance to being blown-off and tearing. Second there are laminated shingles, also known as "architectural" or "dimensional" shingles, they are layered with a thickness and depth to make them look more like wood shakes. They are built on a double layer of tough fiber glass with each shingle providing the most resistance to being blown or torn off.
