Asphalt shingles are a popular roofing material due to their affordability and durability. They are made of a base mat coated with asphalt and then covered with granules that give them their color and texture. Asphalt shingles come in a range of styles, including 3-tab, architectural, and designer shingles, making them versatile options for various architectural designs.
They are also available in a wide variety of colors and can mimic the look of other roofing materials, such as slate or wood, at a fraction of the cost. Additionally, asphalt shingles are easy to install and maintain, and they can last up to 30 years with proper care.
