A shingle roof can provide your family with overhead protection for 20 years or longer with no issues. If you find yourself on a tight budget, a shingle roof may be your best choice. It will usually last many years before it requires any maintenance, and even then, the maintenance is minimal, and the bill for it won’t be too pricey.


Asphalt shingle roofs have lasted through some of the strongest storms with little to no damage. Even though shingle roofs are one of the least expensive roof options, their quality is not compromised. Whether it be hail, wind, or a large tree branch falling onto your roof, shingle roofs hold up extremely well. Replacing a few shingles here and there won’t break the bank, and you can easily stay on top of your roof maintenance with this durable and long lasting roofing option.

Whether you are trying to increase your home’s curb appeal with a new roof, trying to blend in with the neighborhood look, or plan on just sticking with what you’re used to, a shingle roof will be perfect. With a plethora of colors, textures and styles to choose from, any type of shingle roof will not disappoint.
