Asphalt Roof Shingles – Still the Most Popular Roofing Material

Asphalt roof shingles are by far the most popular roofing material on the market today. Paradigm Roofing installs countless asphalt roof shingles on both residential and commercial properties all across the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. You may be asking yourself about why asphalt roof shingles are the most commonly used roofing material. Asphalt serves many purposes and provides many benefits. Here are just a few reasons why asphalt still tops the list for roofing materials in the United States.


Asphalt roofing is one of the most affordable roofing materials when compared to other options like tile or slate. For most families, asphalt shingles are well within their budget and offers exceptional protection for the money.

Easy Maintenance

Maintenance for asphalt shingles is quite easy. You have a roofing contractor come and inspect your roof on a regular basis to check for leaks or damage. With asphalt shingles, repair is easy, and some homeowners even take it upon themselves to learn how to repair their asphalt roof.


For the price, asphalt roofing is incredibly durable. There are several different coatings and grades of asphalt roofing that can improve the lifespan and durability of your roof. For those who live in areas prone to severe weather, asphalt roofing can hold up very well; you just may need an inspection after a particularly bad storm.


Unlike tile or slate, you can place asphalt on virtually any roof, no matter the slope or support strength of the underlying roof. Asphalt shingles come in a wide variety of colors to match any home’s design aesthetic as well, making asphalt an excellent choice for those remodeling their home.
