Asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing material, due to their durability and affordability. There are two types of asphalt shingles- fiberglass and organic. Organic shingles usually are more durable than fiberglass and contain more asphalt than fiberglass shingles. Although they’re not as heavy, fiberglass shingles tend to be more popular than organic shingles. This is largely because the price of fiberglass shingles is lower than that of organic shingles.
