Asphalt shingles, unlike some other roof types, are inexpensive, easy to purchase, and offer a wide variety of colors and styles to choose from. Roofing shingles typically have a 40-50 year life expectancy, based on the performance of three components and their ability to resist weathering: layer, asphalt, and the granules.
The reinforcement layer typically starts out with either an asphalt-saturated organic felt or fiberglass mat. This reinforcement is the structural base of the shingle, to which the other raw materials (asphalt and granules) are applied. In order for asphalt roofing shingles to provide protection, the reinforcement must resist tearing, warping and shrinkage when applied on stable, well-ventilated roof decks.
