What is Asphalt Shingle Roofing?


What Makes Asphalt Shingle Roofing a Popular Choice for Greater Massachusetts Homeowners?

Asphalt shingle roofing is one of the most popular types of roofing for homes in Greater MA. Asphalt shingles are made of a fiberglass mat that is coated with asphalt and then covered with a layer of ceramic or stone granules.

Why are asphalt shingles so popular?


Asphalt shingles are available in a variety of colors and styles, and they can be matched to any home’s exterior.


Asphalt shingle roofs are durable and can last for 20-30 years with proper maintenance. They are also easy to install, which makes them a popular choice for do-it-yourselfers.

Cost Effectiveness

Asphalt shingles are also relatively inexpensive, which makes them a good choice for budget-minded homeowners.

Things to Keep in Mind:

There are a few things to keep in mind if you are considering asphalt shingle roofing for your home. Asphalt shingles are not fireproof, so if you live in an area that is prone to wildfires, you may want to stay away from asphalt shingles.

Asphalt shingles also do not do well in high winds, so if you live in an area that is prone to hurricanes or tornadoes, you may want to consider another type of roofing.
