Though most roofing shingles here in Central Florida may look similar, nothing could be further from the truth. Manufacturers are constantly developing new technology and trends that set shingles apart. The roofing contractor you have replacing or repairing also plays a big role. 

What do you need to know about asphalt roofing shingles?

Shingles are made from crushed durable igneous rock, coated with a clay silicate mixture, in which pigment is added, fired at a high temperature, then cured the coating into a ceramic.

These granules add a unique depth and visual appeal, they are also the source of color and add to the longevity, durability, and UV protection.
