Asphalt shingles are the less expensive than the other options like wood, slate or metal materials. Shingle roofing need very little maintenance and therefore a low maintenance cost. They are easy and inexpensive to repair. Asphalt shingles are durable and long-lasting with many warrantied for 30-50 years.
Shingle roofs are easy to install. A professional roofing contractor can install a new roof in just a couple of days.
Shingles come in a variety of colors, textures and designs. The most common is the 3-tab design. New architectural designer styles have a two-layer dimensional appeal and can mimic the look of other roofing materials. There is a shingle look to match any home.
