The Honest Abe Roofing Polymer Modified Shingle will give folks that want a traditional asphalt roof the look they desire while performing more like a metal roof. How? By being crafted extremely differently than traditional asphalt shingles.
As you know, asphalt substance that hardens as it cools. Which is why it is used to construct the roads that we drive on. Although it is hard, it’s also brittle; just look at the potholes you see! Our shingles are created with the same asphalt used in traditional shingles but they are modified with a polymer called S.B.S. (Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene). S.B.S. is the same compound that is used in Styrofoam. The rubberizing aspect of S.B.S. allows greater flexibility so the shingles resist cracking even in extreme cold weather, allowing year-round application. The S.B.S. in the Honest Abe Roofing Polymer Modified Shingle also allows the granules to more completely adhere to the shingle which is one of the key components to protecting the shingle.
