In this post, [company_name] discusses all you need to know about asphalt shingles, from its benefits to installation tips.

Fiberglass Shingles

This is a new development in the technology of asphalt shingles. They boast a fiberglass core that’s surrounded by the asphalt. The fiberglass gives the shingle stability while the asphalt itself waterproofs the entire shingle.

As a GAF Master Elite® roofing contractor, we are proud to offer these high-quality asphalt shingles. All of GAF’s shingle systems, such as their Timberline® and Lifetime Roofing systems, boast this shingle technology. On top of longer durability, these shingles also boast an extended life span.

More Colors to Choose From

Asphalt still takes the lead in terms of sheer versatility when it comes to aesthetics. Its large color palette means you can choose shingle colors that are a great fit for more modern homes. Still, the most popular color and texture choices are wood and slate.

Asphalt Shingles and Ventilation

Here’s an installation tip to keep in mind: when installing an asphalt shingle roofing system, consider ventilation. In addition to it being required by every building code, proper ventilation is what will keep your asphalt shingles from getting moisture damage during summer and going brittle during winter.
