By far, the most widely used residential roofing system in the United States is asphalt shingles. Home builders and roofing contractors choose this system due to their ease of installation and cost-efficiency. Almost any residential roof, regardless of pitch and style, can accommodate asphalt shingles. Carolina Atlantic, a leading two-step distributor of residential roofing products and accessories across the South, can source asphalt roof shingles in a wide variety of colors and styles, from the top industry brands, and at wholesale prices.
A two-step distributor serves as the link between product manufacturers and local area building supply retail stores. We source the finest residential roofing products, accessories and materials to our partner retail outlets to keep their clients amply supplied with high-quality products, including asphalt shingles and other related components.
Asphalt shingles are known for durability and superior water resistance, making them a popular choice for many home builders and roofing contractors. They are made from organic or fiberglass matting coated with asphalt for superior waterproofing. The final step is applying a fine layer of ceramic granules that protect the asphalt layer against damage from UV rays, make them more fire-resistant and add color. The large asphalt shingle mats are baked and cut into desired sizes for installation.
Carolina Atlantic sources all three basic types of asphalt shingles from leading brands:
- 3-tab (Strip) shingles
- Architectural or laminate (dimensional) shingles
- Luxury shingles
Each type comes in hundreds of styles and colors to match virtually any home. A Carolina Atlantic team member at a nearby distribution center can help with product selection and more information.
Wholesale Architectural Asphalt Shingles
Architectural, or dimensional, asphalt shingles are the most commonly used. They consist of multiple layers of asphalt fused into a multi-dimensional form, mimicking the appearance of wood shake or natural slate roof coverings. Dimensional shingles are thicker and more durable, and have a better warranty than other residential asphalt shingles.
Carolina Atlantic sources top brand asphalt shingles from IKO, Owens Corning, ATLAS, CertainTeed and GAF. Each brand offers literally dozens of options in shape, color and style. As a partner area retail construction or roofing supply store, you can rely on us to source any quantity of asphalt shingles and related supplies quickly and efficiently from our vast multi-state network of modern distribution centers.
