Asphalt Shingles

HGTV says that, “Asphalt Shingles are the most common residential roofing material used in the United States. Asphalt shingles are popular because they are economical and easy to install. These shingles can be reinforced with fiberglass or organic materials (cellulose) without changing the appearance of the shingle”.

The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) reports that, “dimensional asphalt shingles are the most popular asphalt shingle used today.  Fine Home Building Magazine Issue 214 reports that dimensional asphalt shingles (also known as architectural laminate shingles) accounted for nearly three-quarters of all asphalt roofing sales in 2010.
