One of the most popular types of roofing materials in the US is asphalt shingles. It is a staple in the roofing industry; about 80 percent of Americans rely on it. Their popularity stems from the fact that they are economical as well as versatile. Moreover, they are available in a huge variety of colors to match virtually every home.
The longevity of asphalt shingles is said to be 20 years, although this still varies according to manufacturer, weather conditions, and a host of other factors. GAF, a leading manufacturer of roofing materials, produces asphalt shingles known throughout Florida and the rest of the US for their long-lasting durability and aesthetic value. In fact, their shingles recently earned recognition from the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association. Roofing Magazine covered the story:
“The asphalt roofing shingles were also chosen for their durability, impact resistance, and ability to hold up to roof traffic compared with the original barrel-shaped Spanish tile. Not only has this roof become the talk of the town of Wilkes-Barre, it also met the four key criteria specified by the County and the roof consultant: durability, aesthetics, reliability, and cost.
These three award-winning projects are great examples of how asphalt-based roofing can do it all—on low- and steep-slope roofs for a variety of clients,” says Lynn Picone, director of inside sales at GAF. “The roofing industry is indebted to ARMA and its leadership for following through on yet another successful QARC program. This case study program provides all industry professionals the opportunity to share good roofing practices and have their efforts recognized by ARMA’s panel of judges.”
