Asphalt shingles, contrary to their name, are not composed of asphalt all the way through the shingle. They actually consist of either a fiberglass or felt paper base that is coated with a waterproof layer of asphalt and then topped with ceramic granule. Since it was developed back in the 1980s, this fiberglass base has been consistently more popular than felt paper shingles. Asphalt shingles with a fiberglass base are lighter and less expensive, but the base still lends considerable strength to the roof, as well as additional fire protection.
There are two main types of asphalt shingles that you can choose from. Shingles are typically manufactured as either three-tab shingles or architectural shingles. The three-tab variety is designed to look like three shingles, even though it is actually all one piece. It is easy to install, economical, and very popular. Architectural shingles are manufactured with an additional layer of asphalt in order to provide them with more dimension and enable them to mimic the look of bulkier roofing products similar to wood or slate. Both of these types of shingles come in a large variety of colors so that they are able to suit pretty much any type of home design.
The newer asphalt shingles are more eco-friendly. This is due to the fact that even though the old-fashioned felt paper backed shingles do contain recycled paper, their higher asphalt content makes them less eco-friendly. However, many companies like SYL Roofing Supply are now offering fiberglass shingles that are able to incorporate features such as solar reflective asphalt in order to assist in preventing the sun’s rays from heating up the building. This provides an eco-friendly benefit as it helps to save energy that would otherwise have gone towards cooling the building since it makes the building more heat efficient.
There is a wide array of factors that can impact the life of asphalt shingle, such as weather, roof pitch, quality of installation, and of course the quality of the shingle itself. Shop around and you will be able to spot warranties that range from 15 to 30 years here at SYL Roofing Supply! Here in Central Florida, especially Orlando, we do not have the issues with ice dams, algae, and spiking temperatures that other regions do. This means that you should be able to expect your shingles to reach the upper end of the lifespan that the manufacturer promises for them. If you notice any of the following issues, however, it’s essential that you immediately contact an experienced roofer to discuss the next step and to possibly replace your asphalt shingles:

Need Drip Edge?
Drip edges are metal sheets, usually in an “L” shape, that are installed at the edge of your roof. Also commonly called drip edge flashing or D-metal, drip edges serve a vital function by directing water away from the fascia and into the gutter. Without a drip edge, water may end up beneath the shingles and may cause serious damage to different parts of your home. Even though your home may not have originally had a drip edge installed, drip edges are now required by the majority of building codes across North America in order to protect homes from damage. There are two main purposes that drip edges serve:
- To direct water away from fascia- Due to cohesion, surface tension, and other forces. Water droplets tend to stick to one another and also to the surfaces that they cling on, even though it’s just a slight force.
A drip edge is specifically engineered to take advantage of those forces and, along with gravity, direct water into the gutter. If the home does not have a gutter, then the drip edge is able to help prevent the water from running down the fascia and onto or into the soffit cavity. However, when there isn’t a drip edge, the water sticks to shingles, potentially working its way under the shingles to cause a leak. For example, water may cling to the fascia, which may end up resulting in rot, or, in extreme cases, a leak into the home, which can cause severe damage in your house.
2. To protect the roof from wind-driven rain- When conditions are serious, the wind pushes water around on a roof. Shingles, along with underlayments, ice, and water protectors, keep wind-driven rain from damaging the roof’s deck. However, on the edges, the drip edge has to compete with the wind. This means that wind can push the water upwards with ease before gravity has time to pull the water down. The drip edge has to hang significantly off the edge of the roof and has two to four inches of lower flange in order to combat this. And, of course, without any drip edge at all, wind-driven rain could end up compromising your roof completely and cause serious damage.
Types of Drip Edge Material
Drip edges are composed of various plastics and metals, which are both acceptable under the majority of building codes so long as the metals are corrosion-resistant or galvanized. Here are some common materials that drip edges consist of:
- Aluminum- A common material for drip edges, aluminum isn’t as strong as steel, but it doesn’t corrode and is usually sold in colors that match the rest of the home exactly.
- Galvanized steel- Drip edges are designed to be in contact with water, which means that if they are made out of steel, they will have to be galvanized in order to prevent the onset of rust. Minimum 24-gauge steel is preferable so that the drip edge is able to withstand strong winds.
- Copper- Copper is a sturdy metal that gives a roof a unique look. When it is utilized as a drip edge, it has to be a minimum of 0.69 mm or 20 ounces.
While plastic, vinyl, and fiberglass drip edges may also be available in your area, these materials are best suited for use in non-roofing applications, such as above doors and windows.
Drip Edge Profile Types
There are three basic profiles of drip edge flashing. However, each type of flashing goes by more than one name, which can be very confusing.
- Type C: This is the classic L-shaped drip edge, and is sometimes also called “L style.” This drip edge is bent to a 90-degree angle and has a lower flange at the bottom.
- Type D: This profile of drip edge is shaped like a “T,” with a lower flange at the bottom. Sometimes it is called drip metal, “D-metal,” or “T-style.” The Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association (ARMA) prefers this drip edge profile to Type C due to the fact that it keeps the water further away from the fascia. However, Type C should still be acceptable when it comes to the majority of building codes.
- Type F: This is an extended drip edge that has a longer leading edge, which is useful when you are installing new drip edges over existing shingles on rake edges. This type of profile is generally referred to as “F-style” or “gutter apron.”
Roofing underlayment is a water-resistant or waterproof barrier material that is installed directly onto the deck of your roof. The underlayment of your roof is applied underneath all of the other roofing materials in order to provide an added layer of protection from severe weather. There are three main types of roofing underlayment:
- Asphalt saturated felt
- Non-bitumen synthetic underlayment, which is also known as “synthetic underlayment”
- Rubberized asphalt underlayment
Asphalt-saturated felt and synthetic underlayment are water-resistant, while rubberized asphalt underlayment is waterproof. Here at SYL Roofing Supply, we provide wholesale synthetic underlayment, also known as non-bitumen synthetic underlayment. This synthetic underlayment is the preferred underlayment of the majority of roofing professionals working today. Here are some key characteristics of synthetic underlayment:
- Synthetic underlayment base-mat is saturated in asphalt. Synthetic products have superior tear resistance and stability due to the addition of fiberglass.
- High-quality synthetic underlayment like what we at SYL Roofing Supply provide has the added benefit of scrim reinforcement for added slip resistance, even when it is wet.
- Synthetic underlayment is designed for application across the entire roof deck. It is also occasionally used with waterproof products.
