What are strip shingles?
At one point, asphalt strip shingles were the most widely used shingle on the market. They are the original asphalt shingle. Eventually, advances in manufacturing technology and a more informed consumer led to strip shingles losing their dominance in the industry.
Style of Strip Shingles
Strip shingles are meant to mimic slate roofing, and along the roofline, they will appear to lay flat. This flat look is created in part by their single layer design. Strip shingles are also less bulky than dimensional or premium materials, making them the lightest weight shingle on the market.
Pro Home Improvement offers two grades of strip shingles XT25 & XT30, both of these shingle grades come in a wide range of beautiful colors, so you’re sure to find the shade you need to complement the rest of your home.
XT25 Strip Shingles
The XT25 is exceptionally strong, with a tough fiberglass base to provide long-lasting protection whatever the weather.
XT30 Strip Shingles
The XT30 is a step up from the XT25: this is the heaviest fiberglass three tab shingle in its class, providing even greater durability and unrivaled protection against tearing.
