If you own a home in Northern VA, then you most likely have composition shingles installed on your home. Composition or Asphalt shingles are the most popular roof coverings. They are called “composition” because they are a composite of a fiberglass reinforcement mat that is coated with asphalt and mineral fillers, which adhere to the fiberglass. The asphalt forms a waterproof barrier. Ceramic granules, or “gravel” are embedded in the surface of the asphalt top to provide additional durability.
The most common shingle installed by Home Builders in this area are 3-tab asphalt shingles because they are the most common shingle type available and they are also the least expensive. The appearance of 3-tab shingles are a smooth, flat surface with evenly spaced dividers notched out of each sheet, creating a uniform tab effect. The life expectancy of these composite shingles are usually 20-25 years and come with a very limited manufacturer’s warranty.
The next step up in composition shingles are the Architectural shingles. These are the most popular and also the most common shingles that the roofing contractors at M & M Exteriors install. Also known as laminated or dimensional shingles, architectural roofing shingles are among the highest quality roofing products made. Architectural asphalt shingles contain no cutouts, but their lower portions are laminated with an additional asphalt layer making them thicker, heavier and more durable.
Architectural asphalt composition shingles come in a variety of styles and colors from classic to luxury. These high-performance shingles stand up well against hail, high winds, and UV damage. The other benefits include:
- Stain Resistance
- Durable, long-lasting beauty
- Attractive & Versatile
- LayerLock™ Technology that adds strength via superior nail placement and wind resistance
- Climate Resistant
- Low Maintenance
