Asphalt roofing shingles have been used for over 100 years now in America and are the most popular roofing materials around. Today shingles are more durable than the traditional organic shingle because now they are made of a fiberglass mat. The mat is bonded with resin and then coated with asphalt mineral fillers and this makes the fiberglass shingle waterproof. This also makes the shingle more durable and most shingles have a limited lifetime warranty or more commonly known as a 50-year limited lifetime warranty. IKO performs rigorous testing on their shingles and some can withstand a 2″ steel ball dropped from a height of 20 feet on shingles. This makes IKO one of the most popular shingles put on todays roofing systems.
