Asphalt/Fiberglass shingles are a composite shingle made from a mat (fiberglass or cellulose), and asphalt and minerals as opposed to just being made of a single material like wood or clay.
Modern asphalt roofing shingles have a mat of fiberglass which is covered in asphalt and then coated with granules that will face the weather. The layers of the composite tile work together to form a flexible, but durable and waterproof shingle.
Asphalt tiles are now available in a wide variety of colors and styles and can even mimic the look of slate or tile. They also have a lifespan of 15 to 30 years, making them a cost effective roofing solution for your Texas home.
