Asphalt Roofing Company
Your home’s roof is not only one of the most important structural elements of your home, but is also a huge component aesthetically. One of the most popular roofing types on the market today is asphalt roofing systems. They come in a wide variety of styles and colors adding to their universal appeal. But, selecting a roof type is only part of the process. Choosing the right asphalt roofing company to do the installation is a critical decision and should not be taken lightly. Freeman Roofing has over 40 years of experience in installing asphalt roofs. Our expertise and attention to detail are standard for every job we complete and keeping your home beautiful and protected are our top priorities.
Most Popular Choice for a Reason
Drive through any upscale subdivision and you are likely to see a multitude of asphalt roofs. The large variety of different options offered in the asphalt category make them a great choice for homeowners. They are both durable and affordable which adds to their wide-ranging appeal.
Diverse Style Options
In terms of colors, there is something for everyone, as asphalt shingles come in no shortage of styles and colors. The most widely used types are 3-tab shingles, dimensional (sometimes called architectural shingles) and premium or luxury shingles. 3-tab shingles are a common choice for those on a tighter budget. These types of roofs provide good protection and last about 20 years. Dimensional shingles are the most popular choice. They present a raised 3-dimensional look that has great curb appeal and is more resistant to the elements resulting in a 30-year life span. Premium or luxury shingles are the most expensive option. They are often used when trying to replicate a look like shaker or slate roofs for a specific home style. These upscale roofs are heavy and resistant to high winds.
Regardless of which type of roof you choose, selecting the best company for the job is key. Not all asphalt roofing companies are created equal. When installed properly by an experienced contractor, asphalt roofs are attractive and come with a great life expectancy.
