Here Are Some Interesting Facts About America’s Favorite Roof:

You get two different types of asphalt shingles, organic shingles and fiberglass roofing. The organic asphalt shingles are made from recycled felt paper that has been saturated in asphalt. The fiberglass shingle roofing are made from woven fiberglass and are coated in a waterproof asphalt layer. The fiberglass shingles are a favorite among customers as they are more durable and environmentally friendly.

Asphalt is made from petroleum. More commonly known as bitumen, asphalt can be found in natural deposits in a liquid or semi-liquid form. Because of its waterproof qualities and durability, asphalt rapidly became a popular material in the roofing industry.

Asphalt can be recycled. Pavements and sidewalks are often made from recycled asphalt. This is great as it reduces our carbon footprint and creates jobs and businesses in the recycling industry.

As mentioned before, asphalt shingle roofing is the most popular roofing material in the United States. This is due to it being easy to install, repair and replace. The material is also one of the cheapest in comparison to other roofing materials.

When regularly maintained and cared for your asphalt shingle roof can last you up to 25-30 years. The shingles can also be individually replaced if need be.

Rob, who sold us our roof, was educated on the product and process. He answered all my detailed questions with patience. A special comment must be left for our Project Manager, Mike, who went above and beyond in every way. He was always available, answers all our questions, thoroughly reviewed the work was done, and even let us know that he is available after the project with any questions. You can tell he truly takes pride in his work. I have worked with others, and so has my family, and I’ll tell you right now we’re sticking with Home Genius Exteriors for all future projects due to Mike’s customer service. Highly recommended company to work with! Our roof is gorgeous.”
