Fiberglass composition is the most common roofing choice in the Springfield, Missouri area for residential homes and comes in a variety of colors and styles. Composition shingles have a fiberglass reinforcing mat at the center. This mat is coated with asphalt and mineral fillers. The fillers adhere to the fiberglass and the asphalt surrounds the structure, making it waterproof. Its top surface is embedded with a layer of ceramic granules.
Composition roofs falls into three major categories:
The least expensive option is known as “3-Tab” shingles. This type of roofing has been refined over the years. It appears as a one layer product with a distinct pattern of tabs. This pattern is caused by vertical slots notched into the visible part of each shingle, splitting the lower half of the shingle into three tabs. These shingles come with manufacturers’ warranties of 20, 25, and 30 years .
Laminates (also known as dimensionals or architectural shingles) have become the most common choice for composition roofs. They are a more recent variant and are superior to the basic 3-Tab. Laminates have a second tabbed layer fused to a base shingle, effectively doubling the materials thickness. They have a strong resemblance to wood shake and are available in a wide range of colors and come with 30, 50, and limited lifetime manufacturers’ warranties.
Premium Composition Shingles
The top premium shingles series are a heavier laminate and represent the absolute top of the line in composition roofs. They are thicker, heavier and often physically larger than standard laminates. They are available in a wide range of styles and can look like slate, tile and wood roofing and come with 50 years and limited lifetime warranties.
