Asphalt Shingle Roofs in WI

Asphalt shingles are the most widely used roofing cover in Wisconsin because they’re affordable and fairly easy to install.

Asphalt shingles are flat rectangular pieces of composite material consisting of:

  • An organic or fiberglass base mat
  • A coating of adhesive asphalt
  • A granular layer of sand, mica, vitrified brick or similar

The mineral granules on the shingle protect it from sunlight, add color and can even resist airborne algae and fungal growth when copper or zinc are added to the mixture.

Types of Asphalt Shingles

Fiberglass resists fire better than organic mats but is not as pliable. Organic-based composition shingles made from wood fiber or waste paper are more durable, but they are soaked in asphalt to waterproof them, which makes them burn more easily.

Nationwide, fiberglass-based asphalt shingles are becoming more popular than organic shingles. But organic shingles perform better in cold and windy climates like Wisconsin.

Asphalt shingles come in two standard design options:

3-Tab shingles are simple, cost-effective and all the same size and shape. They’re a popular option for lower-value homes such as rental properties.

Architectural or Dimensional shingles are stronger, thicker and come in varied sizes and shapes for a more appealing look including shadow lines.

Architectural shingles cost more to install, but they also last longer and come with better manufacturer warranties.

Not only are asphalt shingles not recyclable, they take a lot of energy to produce and are considered a petroleum based product. Metal and stone coated steel roofing systems are more sustainable options.
