While most shingle roofs use asphalt as their main material, there are some alternatives if you are worried about possible downsides like difficulty in recycling used shingles. These other types of shingles use different components as a base in addition to asphalt.
Organic mat-based shingles include a base of recycled felt paper. That makes them more expensive than other types of shingles but thicker and heavier. They are also subject to warping and don’t offer the same fire resistance. However, these asphalt shingles are more flexible and rugged than other varieties.
Fiberglass shingles are a popular combination of a woven fiberglass base with an asphalt coating. This decreased concentration of asphalt makes fiberglass shingles lighter and thinner than traditional asphalt shingles. They also still have UV-protection and waterproofing to protect your roof from natural elements.
