Composition Shingles For Residential Homes
Composite shingles are what you see on most U.S. homes across the U.S. In fact, up to 80% of all houses in the nation have this type of roof. As a Dallas roofing company, Go Go Green Roofing and Restoration are very experienced with installing this type of roof.
These types of shingles are known as 3 tab shingles. That’s because they are made as a single strip with three sections so they look like three individual shingles. The types of roof repair Dallas sees are often for this type of roofing.
Composite shingles are also called asphalt shingles. That’s because of the asphalt coating used in making them. First the manufacturer starts with a base material like felt or a fibrous glass mat. Next, the surface is coated with asphalt. This helps to further make the shingle water resistance and provides a surface for the mineral granules to adhere to. These granules are the side of the shingle exposed to the elements. They provide much of the roofs protection. Often a Dallas roof repair company is called in when these shingles become worn out and lose much of their granular coating.
Premium Composite Shingles are known as “architectural” or “dimensional” shingles. They are thicker and can create lines on the roof because of their shadows, making them appear more like a wood shake. These shingles are frequently laminated shingles. Laminated shingles have more than one layer of tabs giving them extra thickness. These types of shingles may also be known as three dimensional shingles. They give a roof added texture and dimension. If you need roof repair in Dallas, we can help you whether you have standard, or premium composite shingles.
Whether premium or standard, all composite shingles have the granular coating. This is a layer of minerals which protect the roof from sun and weather. Some roofing materials are even designed to repel fungus growth, algae and other plant life. This can be done, in part, by adding zinc to the mineral mix. These granules can also add varying degrees of color and texture to the look of your roof. As your Dallas roof repair company, we can offer you a variety of different colors and styles to coordinate with your roof.
