Choosing a roofing material with the right look and level of durability is an important decision, because most homeowners replace their roof only once.
Asphalt shingles, due to the wide variety of colors, styles and shapes available, provide a number of options to help a home blend in or stand out in a neighborhood. Developments in durability and performance have improved the ability of asphalt shingles to stand up to the toughest wear and tear, contributing to their longevity.
