Residential roofing products include all of those products that are necessary to make your roofing system protect your assets better, whether this is about your home, garage or any other residential application.
This type of products is usually designed for applications related to steep slope roofs and may include, besides roofing shingles, underlayment and accessories.
High-quality roofing shingles come in a large variety of styles and colors and are especially designed for residential applications. Among them, asphalt roofing shingles are the most frequently used.
Roofing shingles may be divided into three major categories:
· Strip shingles;
· Dimensional shingles;
· Premium shingles;
Strip roofing shingles are the basic type used in residential roofing applications. They are single layered, and their design usually looks like slate.
Dimensional roofing shingles are usually heavier than the previous type and are manufactured as multi-layered products, having at least two layers.
Premium roofing shingles, typically laminated, provide improved aesthetics and have a richer design.
Underlayments are meant to be used as water-resistant layers beneath the shingles. They are waterproof and prevent leaks caused by ice dams or wind-driven rain.
