Asphalt shingles are one of the more popular choices for roofing materials among homeowners. As such, there is a good chance that you will find yourself needing to remove some creosote from asphalt shingles, at least if you happen to have a chimney and a fireplace. Creosote is a tough, sticky, tar like substance that builds up over time when you burn things, and is typically found around fireplaces and chimneys. If you do not periodically remove these stains, then you can potentially find yourself with an extreme fire hazard. Removing creosote from asphalt shingles is possible, though it may require a bit of time and money on your part.
