When it comes to roofing shingle, asphalt shingles are the most popular. This is due to the fact that they are inexpensive compared to other roofing materials. The cost is usually determined by geographical location, the slope of the roof, height of the building, as well as access to the premises. There are other factors involved like, complexity of the project, and type of shingle used. Asphalt shingles are found in many colors and styles.
Shingles have been made of various materials such as wood, slate, asbestos-cement, bitumen-soaked paper covered with aggregate (asphalt shingle), composite or ceramic. Due to increased fire hazard, wood shingles and paper-based asphalt shingles have become less common than fiberglass-based asphalt shingles. Historically, at the roof ridge there was a cap consisting of copper or lead sheeting which in modern times has been replaced by shingles with a plastic underlay.
