What Are Roof Shingles?
Roof shingles, roofing shingles, or sometimes simply shingles, are felt shingles or shingles for roofing which are made from bitumen (asphalt) and are similar in nature and use to shed felt but are highly superior. Bituminous roofing like these felt roof shingles have nothing to do with the nasty illness nor are they like cedar shingles or slate roof tiles which are popular as roofing material in the UK.
How To Make Shingles
An asphalt shingle or felt shingle is usually 1m long by about 30cm high. Roof shingles are made by coating a fibreglass mat with high quality bitumen which is then covered with coloured stone on the side that will face upwards. Some have a bitumen layer put onto the back which helps when you lay roof shingles. Felt shingle tiles are usually shaped at the bottom into rectangular tabs or hexagonal shapes and sometimes even more unusual shapes such as the beaver tail or diamant felt roofing shingles.
How To Install Shingles
Roofing felt shingles need to be fixed onto an apex timber roof. The next row of roof shingles is applied above that but slightly offset so the correct pattern is formed. You can install shingles with shed felt roof tacks/nails.
A whole shingle roof can be finished quickly and easily and there are cheap roof shingles so you don't need to break the budget.
