Denver Residential Roof Shingles

9-wood-shingle-roofRoof shingles are a type of roof covering composed of individual overlapping elements. These elements are flat and rectangular in shape, laid on the roof in rows starting from the bottom edge of the roof upwards. Each of the successive higher rows overlaps the joints in the row right below it.

For residential properties, Asphalt shingles are widely used and are also the popular choice among customers for their home construction and renovation needs. This is owing to the fact that asphalt shingles are economical, trendy and provide a greater durability compared to other roofing material options available in the market.

One should take into account that the cost of any roof covering project is usually determined by the geographical location of the property, the slope of the roof, height of the building, as well as ease of access to the premises.

The other factors include complexity of the project and the most importantly the choice between the two types of roofing asphalt shingles; Organic and Fiberglass or Glass Fiber.

Organic shingles are a combination of paper (waste paper) saturated with asphalt to make it waterproof. This is then coated with a layer of adhesive asphalt followed by embedding with ceramic granules for durability and strength.
