ASPHALT SHINGLES IN NASHVILLE AND KNOXVILLE AREAS
Asphalt shingles are just one of a variety of roof shingles you can get in the Nashville area. They are popular because they are inexpensive, economical, light and easy to install when compared to tiles. In terms of aesthetics, they give the house a textured, classic, and elegant look.
Asphalt became widely used as a roofing material in the 1890’s when a chemist developed paper infused with asphalt for roofing purposes. Felt is soaked in asphalt, and pellet-like minerals are then embedded into the asphalt’s surface while still hot and soft. Shingles are used and attached to a roof’s deck, which may be plywood, fiber cement board, hardiflex, or a galvanized iron sheet.
There are two types of asphalt shingles – organic and glass fiber. Organic shingles are generally made of waste paper soaked in asphalt, coated with adhesive asphalt, and embedded with ceramic grains. Fiberglass shingles, on the other hand, have a base composed of glass fiber mat made from fiberglass mixed with resin. They are made waterproof by a layer of asphalt. A variety of fiberglass asphalt shingle has been introduced and is now known as the laminated shingle, which, as the name suggests, uses two layers laminated with sealant. It is much more costly yet also more durable.
