What Makes Asphalt Shingles Your Go-to Roofing Option

Asphalt shingles are the most common residential roofing material throughout the entire United States and far and above throughout in New England.  In many residential neighborhoods, you’ll most likely see the asphalt and then on far fewer occasions, you’ll see slate, rubber, copper and other metal solutions. But, why has asphalt been homeowners go-to choice time and time again? What makes this material so popular for homeowners? Let us explain!

Benefits of Protecting Your Home with Asphalt Shingles: 

When a homeowner is enduring any home remodeling project, they have to analyze each of these buckets; beauty, affordability, performance, and ease of installation. How does asphalt fit under each of these categories you ask?


Asphalt shingles are available in a wide selection of colors and styles. With Capital Construction we offer each and every customer a huge array of options so their new roof matches the entire look and feel of their house.


Out of all the most popular roofing options, asphalt shingles is right there at the top of the list. Putting money into your home can be intimidating but choosing asphalt can ease your mind a bit because you don’t have to completely break the bank.


At the end of the day, you need a roof that is going to be able to handle all that mother nature has to throw at it. Asphalt has stood the test of time and generally doesn’t have to be replaced for over 20-25 years.


Asphalt shingles have an incredible ease of installation and repair meaning, with a very low maintenance required.

On top of these very important issues, shingle can be recycled at the end of their life cycle. In a day of age where recycling is extremely important, asphalt makes it easy.
