Asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing material in North America today. They have long been a go-to option for residential structures due to their superior waterproofing ability and versatile style. For certain commercial buildings which don't have a flat or low-sloped roofing system, asphalt shingles can also be a great choice.

Here are some advantages of installing asphalt shingles on commercial properties:

  1. Versatility. Asphalt shingles come in a variety of colors and profiles, providing endless options for commercial property owners. Be sure to find a GAF Master Elite® Certified roofer to install them to ensure you get the highest quality of asphalt shingle products available on the market.
  2. Reliability. Two of the main reasons why commercial roof replacement contractors prefer asphalt shingles are ease of installation and maintenance. For a property owner, this means having a durable roof that can withstand harsh weather conditions without the need for frequent repairs.
  3. Low cost. Asphalt shingles are typically more affordable than other types of roof coverings, but that is not all. If you choose to install asphalt shingles on your commercial building, you will also enjoy the benefit of having an asset with low lifecycle cost. This means that throughout their lifespan, asphalt shingles are inexpensive to install, repair and replace. With adequate maintenance, an asphalt shingle roof can protect your property for decades, proving to be a good investment.
