Types of Asphalt Shingles

Designer Asphalt Shingles

At Barrington Roof Doctors we come across a lot of roofs that have reached their end of days. A large part of these roofs are cedar. With the cost of cedar climbing every year people are looking for options. When coming from a cedar roof it may be difficult, aesthetically, to settle for a regular asphalt roof. Fortunately, there are some great alternatives.

The top roofing companies in America now offer full selections of Designer Asphalt Shingles with dozens of choices to choose from. These provide distinctive styles and textures that can tailor fit your home’s color and style. Some of these shingles come with 50 year warranties, are impervious to hail and are completely maintenance free. Some of these shingles can give you a discount on your home insurance due to their hail rating. Below are pictures of two of the most popular choices.
