What is an Asphalt Shingle?
Made from petroleum, asphalt contains oils that make asphalt shingles easy to work with and effective at protecting your roof and home. There are 3 components that made Asphalt Shingles, i.e.,

Reinforcement Asphalt Shingles start out with an asphalt-coated 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 shingles to provide protection, the reinforcement must resist tearing, warping and shrinkage when applied on stable, well-ventilated decks.
Asphalt During shingle manufacturing, the reinforcement is coated with asphalt to provide the water-resistant layer that protects your roof from the elements. The thickness of this layer of asphalt determines the weight of the shingle. Many believe that the heavier the shingle the greater the protection offered to your roof and home. This factor is only one of many that determines the life expectancy of your roof.
Granules A layer of granule is pressed into the surface of the asphalt. The granules protect the layer of asphalt from the ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Without this layer of protection, the asphalt layer would quickly deteriorate.

Selecting a Shingle Style
The different styles of shingles can be divided into two basic categories:
Cambridge (Architectural shingles) and Marathon (Traditional 3-Tab Design Shingles)

Cambridge AR
Architectural Shingles (also known as Double Layer Asphalt Shingles)

The first type is the architectural shingle. Their remarkable dimensional thickness and deep, blended shadow bands simulate the appearance of classic wood shakes, enhancing the beauty of any home.

The Cambridge shingle is the shingle of choice for homeowners who demand the best in terms of quality, durability and value. Combining an extraordinary shake-like design with superior protection makes it a time-tested favorite. Cambridge shingles are engineered to offer customers more protection and peace of mind with a larger, heavier and more durable shingle. Constructed with two layers of heavyweight fiberglass mat, more asphalt and less fillers, these shingles set the standard by offering a Limited Lifetime Warranty, superior tear strength and resistance to high winds.
