Asphalt shingles remain the go-to roofing material for many homes, but their popularity is not unearned. This roofing option offers great weather resistance, good looks and a long service life – all at a reasonable price.

1. They are exceedingly durable. Asphalt shingles can withstand extreme weather conditions. However, this will depend on the quality of the material. Rapid Roofing, for instance, offers exceptional shingle roofing systems from top brand, Owens Corning®. They are engineered for supreme durability and have undergone strict testing and requirements so they can provide the reliable weather performance you expect.

2. Asphalt shingles have a long service life. When installed and maintained properly by premier roofers, your asphalt shingle roofing can last over 20 years. We are, in fact, an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor, so you’ll have greater peace of mind knowing your asphalt shingles will be installed in a timely and efficient manner that adheres to stringent quality specifications.

3. They are versatile. Customization is never a problem when you pick asphalt shingles. They are available in a wide range of colors, profiles and thicknesses. Some even emulate the natural look and feel of traditional roofing materials, making them easier to match with your home’s vintage style and exterior color scheme.

4. Asphalt shingles are energy-efficient. Some asphalt shingles come with advanced technology that effectively reflects the sun’s energy and absorbs less heat. This allows for a cooler, more comfortable indoor environment – minus the high energy bills.

5. They are cost-effective. Asphalt shingles are generally lightweight, making them easier and faster to install. They also won’t require an additional support structure to hold them up, helping bring down labor costs.
