By far, the number one covering over commercial and residential steep-sloped roofs of the United States is asphalt shingles.

Developed over a century ago, the more common paper based asphalt shingle has come far; giving way to a more durable and affordable fiberglass reinforced and recycled rubber shingles. When it is time to replace your roof, you’ll have to decide if you are going to strip the existing roof or go over it with another layer of shingles. We highly recommend stripping the roof, as it allows for full inspection of the deck surface (plywood or planks), transition points, skylights, chimneys or any other areas that may be prone to leaking.

The most basic shingle is the 25 year 3-Tab shingle. For years this was the only shingle available on the market, however, today there are over 20 types of shingles to choose from. The most popular and most cost effective is the architectural shingle, which comes with a 30, 40 and 50 year warranty. Typically, the weight of the shingle determines the number of years of warranty associated with it.
