Asphalt Shingles: The Smart Choice for a New Roof
How are shingles made?
How shingles are constructed contributes to how they work. Shingles are built on top of a fireproof fabric mat that, in the case of asphalt shingles, is soaked in liquid asphalt products to make them waterproof and insulating. This fabric is layered with other membranes and then topped with fine aggregates called granules. These granules provide color, style, weight, UV ray protection, and impact resistance.
