An asphalt shingle is a wall/roof shingle, which utilises asphalt for waterproofing.

Asphalt shingles basically come in two types viz. fiberglass and organic.

Cost-effectiveness & Easy Replacement Characteristics Sustaining Adoption of Asphalt Shingles

A broad range of roofing materials are available in the market on the basis of economic, aesthetic, performance, and structural needs. Over the past few years, roof designs have been transforming into an architectural trademark. These transformations offered reasonably priced, structurally sound, and aesthetically attractive designs, along with being environment friendly. In this highly competitive roofing market, asphalt shingles have been of the most favourite choices of consumers. Although asphalt shingles are not as long lasting and durable as the more premium roofing materials including clay tiles, slate, metal and cedar shake, asphalt shingles enable sufficient aesthetic appeal and adequate protection at mere fraction of price of other roofing systems. This has led several house owners to adopt asphalt shingles for roofing. With expected rise in the residential building construction spending, demand for asphalt shingles is likely to gain an uptick in the near future.

Global warming has now rechristened climate change, allowing snow and extremely cold weather to be experienced in countries, wherein winters are subtropical. This extreme weather, encompassing various regions, is one of the major reasons fuelling adoption of asphalt shingles among roofing systems, as they are cost-effective and can be easily replaced when damaged. However various factors are likely to affect the cost of asphalt shingles’ supply and demand. For example – cost of petroleum-based products, which are used for manufacturing asphalt shingles, based on foreign or domestic provenance.
