With roots tracing back to the early 1900s, asphalt shingles have been installed on an impressive 80% of residential roofs in North America. Even with high-tech modern options like standing seam metal roof panels or solar roofing, they persist as a leading roofing material.

At Xtreme Roofing, we proudly stand as North Carolina’s trusted residential roofing contractor, installing an extensive selection of premium-quality materials to meet local homeowners’ needs, including roof shingles in many colors.

Though they’re very popular, many property owners don’t know enough about asphalt shingles, so let’s dig in!

Asphalt Shingles: Classic Roof Protection with Modern Style

This traditional roofing material is composed of a durable fabric base layer coated with asphalt and topped with mineral or ceramic granules. The fabric base layer, made of fiberglass or organics, provides strength and stability, resisting bending and external forces. The asphalt coating, sealing the shingle, waterproofs it against leaks and boosts water resistance. It also adds flexibility, shielding from UV rays for durability. Granules in the coating protect against UV rays, enhance fire resistance, offer color variety, and guard against impacts, preserving the roof’s integrity. Once overlapped, this traditional roofing creates a robust and protective layer over the roof, ensuring durability, weather resistance, fire resistance, and a renewed appearance.

Types of Roofing Shingles

Each shingle comes at a different price point and presents unique characteristics and benefits.
