All About Shingle Roofing

Shingles are flat type asphalt used to cover a roof, sometimes made of composite or other materials. They are applied rfom the base of the roof all the way to the top overlapping on the way up the roof. There is a lot more to shingle roofing than just the definition.

In the early 1900s using shingles was started. Only available in green or black back then, but today you can see them in a wide variety of colors from dark to light tones even blues and greens. There are also shingles that look like wood.

There are two popular types, 3-tab and architectural. Three-tab shingles are designed to look like they are 3 peices, but they are only one peice of shingle. Architectural shinges are thick and have more shape to them, ussually costing more, but out perform 3-tab roofing.
