Organic Shingles

1 min read

Organic shingles are a type of roofing material made from an asphalt-saturated base mat. They were commonly used in the past but have some drawbacks for homeowners. One significant concern is their tendency to absorb moisture, which can lead to warping, damage, and the growth of algae and mold. Additionally, finding replacement shingles for repairs can be challenging since they are no longer widely produced. It's important for homeowners with organic shingle roofs to monitor for signs of moisture damage and consider alternative roofing options for better durability and availability.
