ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) LLC has developed guidelines for evaluating alternative asphalt shingles. These criteria provide an alternative to using ASTM D3462, “Standard Specification for Asphalt Shingles Made from Glass Felt and Surfaced with Mineral Granules,” which is a requirement for fiberglassreinforced asphalt shingles in the International Building Code® (IBC) and International Residential Code® (IRC). If you are involved with the installation or design of asphalt shingle roof systems, I encourage you to be aware of these alternative provisions.
