Austin’s Premier Asphalt Shingle Roofing Company
How much do you know about asphalt shingle roofing? Aside from asphalt shingle roofing ranking top among the most affordable and popular roofing options in the United States, there’s not much that property owners know about this roofing type.
As is the case with most roofing options, high-quality asphalt shingles help protect your home from external factors. With asphalt shingle roofing you get to enjoy enhanced protection and durability among numerous other benefits.
If you are considering installing this roofing type, here’s a detailed guide letting you in on all the secrets you need to know about the available asphalt shingle roofing styles for your Austin home.
Asphalt Shingle Roofing Style Options
Asphalt shingle roofing is generally categorized into two. On one hand, you have organic asphalt shingles and on the other hand, you have fiberglass shingles.
Organic Asphalt Shingle Roofing
As the name already hints, organic asphalt shingles are originally manufactured from organic materials such as wood. Organic shingle tiles can also be made out of recycled cardboard, waste paper, or even rags.
Here, the organic material of choice, say, waste paper, is mixed with asphalt to make it waterproof, molded into tiles, and coated with another top coat asphalt adhesive mixed with solid granules for a distinct aesthetic effect.
This roofing style is favored mainly owing to its distinct qualities which include:
- It is waterproof
- Have a minimum guaranteed service of up to 20 years
- Heavier in weight hence more sturdy/stable
- Affordable hence a good option for someone working on a tight budget
Owing to their compromised resistance to moisture and saturation, organic shingles have limited durability compared to fiberglass shingles. They can therefore only do well in areas where the weather is drier and less humid for most parts of the year. Prolonged exposure to humid conditions can cause organic shingles to either break or degrade over time.
Fiberglass Asphalt Shingle Roofing
Derived from a fiberglass base and a waterproof coating, fiberglass shingles also have a distinct set of qualities that steer most property owners to choose it over other roofing options. Fiberglass roofing is ideal for all weather conditions and remains resilient upon impact. It doesn’t change in shape nor does it dry out over time.
Some additional qualities of fiberglass asphalt shingle roofing include:
- It is light in weight
- Offers more years of service
- Resistant to fire
- Impervious to UV rays
3-Tab Shingles Vs Architectural Shingles
Many homeowners often want to know what the difference between 3-tab and architectural shingles are. The most obvious difference is in the design and aesthetics of the shingle. Architectural shingles, as well as designer shingles, are known as a ‘higher’ end shingle because of their unique look, and higher wind and hail resistance. Architectural shingles cost more than 3-tab (flat) shingles, however, architectural is becoming the main shingle style of choice by most homeowners!
Why Choose Asphalt Shingles?
There’s no doubt that each one of the above options listed above has a lot to bring to the table. Despite the differences between organic asphalt and fiberglass shingles, there are numerous other you can still enjoy, irrespective of which one you choose.
Easy to Install
Owing to how lightweight asphalt shingles are, it takes a fraction of the time to install shingles on an entire roof. This compared to the time you would need to install slate roofing tiles, for example. In most cases, we can have an asphalt shingle roof installed in as little as one day!
Value for Money
It is one thing to be able to spend less on roofing materials, but another whole different thing to get value out of the same. In most cases, you are forced to trade quality for a low price. When it comes to asphalt roofing tiles, however, you can enjoy both quality and affordability simultaneously.
Easy to Maintain
Don’t want to spend much time or resources on maintenance? If yes, then asphalt shingles make the best choice for you. They only need minimal maintenance needing professional maintenance only once a year.

We provide 100% free estimates and storm damage roofing inspections. We can provide a no-obligation inspection and give you an honest assessment on the health of your roof.

Absolutely! One of the most frequently asked questions that we receive from homeowners is “do you offer financing?”. We work with several different financing companies allowing us to offer affordable, low-cost payment plans to our customers. In some cases, you may have the opportunity to defer payments for several months, as well as no money down!
The answer to this question is it truly “depends”. The lifespan that a roofing system will last depends on the roofing material that you have installed on your roof. While an asphalt shingle roof can last 15-20 years, a metal roof can last 40-50 years, while a tile or slate roof can last 50+ years! More than just the roofing material, there are also variables like the grade/quality of material that you used, the craftsmanship of the contractor, as well as any storm activity your roof has been exposed to.
“Should I repair or replace my roof” is one of the most common questions that we get. This answer also depends on each situation, with age being one of the largest factors. A leaking 7-year old metal or shingle roof may have flashing or a section that needs to be repaired. This may be a minor repair. However, a 17-year old leaking shingle roof may require a full replacement if a repair can not made to extend the useful life of your roof.
This depends on the size of your roof, and the roofing material that you decide to go with. In many instances, an asphalt shingle roof can be installed in as little as one day!
