High quality composition shingles made from asphalt or fiberglass are an attractive, affordable and durable choice for Kansas City, Overland Park and Olathe roofs.

Composition shingles are available in a wide variety of styles and colors to complement the design and enhance the beauty of your home.

For Overland Park roof replacements, composition shingles are a good choice because they are low maintenance. Most brands offer Class A fire protection, which is an excellent choice to make your roof more fire resistant.

Composition shingles for Kansas City roofs come in two types – organic (asphalt) and non-organic (fiberglass).

Asphalt shingles are made by saturating paper with asphalt to make it waterproof. A layer of adhesive asphalt is applied and ceramic granules are embedded in the shingle. Asphalt shingles are generally heavy and sturdy, making your Kansas City roof more durable and less vulnerable to wind damage.

Fiberglass shingles have a base layer of glass fiber reinforcing mat that is then coated with asphalt to make it waterproof. A newer design of fiberglass asphalt shingle, called laminated or architectural, uses two distinct layers which are bonded together. Laminate shingles are heavier and more durable, but also more expensive. Laminated shingles offer excellent fire resistance for your Olathe roof, and also give an attractive, contoured visual effect to a roof surface.

Advantages of composition shingles include:

  • Wide variety of styles and colors to match any home/architectural style
  • Good value for the money
  • Easier to repair
  • Fire resistant
  • Suitable for more residential applications
