Where Should I use Asphalt Shingle?

Asphalt shingles are one of the least expensive Roofing Materials and they are available in a wide variety of colors. Asphalt shingles are commonly used on sloped roofs, single homes, and smaller residential projects just to name a few. This provides flexibility during its installation process. Nowadays, shingles are also available with different textures and thickness, and they can be treated against mold and mildew.

Types of Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are divided into two categories: organic and fiberglass. Organic shingles are made up of paper with an asphalt coating that converts them into a waterproof product. Fiberglass shingles provide better fire protection than organic shingles. Like organic shingles, fiberglass shingles are treated with a protective resin coating that converts them into waterproof material. New developments and technology have led to the creation of architectural shingles, using two layers bonded with a special sealant that adds an appealing visual effect to the roof.

For asphalt shingles, Our Recommendation as a member of NRCA: “a single layer of No. 15 asphalt-saturated underlayment be used with roofs having slopes of 4:12 (18 degrees) or greater.

For roof slopes between 3:12 (14 degrees) to 4:12 (18 degrees), NRCA recommends a minimum of two layers of No. 15 underlayment. If you are installing a heavier-weight shingle with projected long service life, using No. 30 underlayment instead of No. 15 would be appropriate.”
