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.
Shingle Options and Styles
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 a 25 year manufactures’ warranty.
