American Shingles offers a varied range of asphalt shingles for use here in Australia backed by a Limited International Warranty from the manufacturers, CertainTeed Corporation.
Depending on your aesthetic and performance criteria, the CertainTeed range of shingles covers all bases and complement both domestic and commercial applications.
In general, shingles are made of the same based materials, a fibreglass reinforcement mat, an engineered asphalt coating with a ceramic coated mineral granule surface. The granules produce the colouring of the shingle profile as well as StreakFighter algae resistance coatings.
The shingle materials of various weights and laminations are then profiled in particular shapes to produce either the symmetry of slate or dimensional characteristics of timber shingles.
American Shingles offers a roofing shingle that is inert and ideal for harsh and coastal applications. We employ stainless steel coil roofing nails to fix every shingle and capping to a plywood roof deck and this of course, requires a commensurate flashing material for the environment that the Shingle Roofing System is installed.
Feel free to contact us at anytime to assist you with your requirements regarding the use of an American Shingles roof to your domestic or commercial application.
