Why are asphalt shingles an excellent choice for your new roof?

Asphalt shingles are the most popular new roofing material. They come is a wide range of styles and sizes, are affordable, easy to install and provide decades of weather protection with minimal maintenance.

Types of Asphalt Roofing Shingles

Asphalt shingles come in three major categories – strip shingles, dimensional shingles, and luxury shingles. Understanding the difference between the three types of shingles can help our roofing replacement team select the perfect shingle for your new roof.

Strip Shingles. These are the original and basic roofing shingles. Made from a single layer of asphalt, they have an attractive, flat look. They weigh and cost less than other shingle types and until designer shingles were introduced in the 1980s, were the shingle of choice for most roof replacements.

Dimensional Shingles. These are the most popular shingles. Often called architectural shingles, they are comprised of multiple layers fused together for a thicker, more attractive, multi-dimensional appearance. Due to the extra thickness, they last longer and have a better warranty then strip shingles.

Luxury Shingles. These are the top of the line multilayered, laminate shingles, featuring a stunning, differentiated look that adds texture and richness to your new roof. They offer premium weather protection as well as an old-world wood shake look.
