Asphalt Shingle Roofing | Mesa | Arizona
Asphalt roofing shingles are most commonly used on residential properties. The asphalt is primarily used to serve as a waterproofing agent. There are granules in the asphalt shingle which adds to the strength of the roofing shingle. The best asphalt will not dry out or become brittle and stay flexible for the expected life of the roofing shingle.
Dimensional Asphalt Roofing Shingles
Dimensional asphalt roofing shingles are manufactured as multi-layered products and provide a thicker and richer multi-dimensional appearance on the roof. Dimensional roofing shingles typically are heavier weight than strip roofing shingles and usually have improved warranty protections, which can range from 30-years to Lifetime.
CertainTeed’s Landmark roofing shingles are a design for Dimensional roofing shingles.
Premium Asphalt Roofing Shingles
Premium asphalt roofing shingles are usually described as laminated shingles that have a different appearance and function from typical dimensional asphalt roofing shingles. These products may have designs that mimic “old-world” roofing shingles, like natural slate or natural shake roofing shingles. CertainTeed’s Grand Manor™, Presidential Shake™ and Centennial Slate™ shingles are prime examples of premium roofing shingles that provide an enhanced aesthetic appeal. Premium asphalt roofing shingles might also have important functional improvements such as Impact Resistance or Solar Reflectivity that can possibly extend the life of the roofing system or provide lower energy costs.
