Asphalt shingles roofs are by far the most common roof used in the Eastern mid-Atlantic region due to the flexibility of shingles and the cost-effectiveness and wide range of styles.
They come in three primary grades: 3-tab, dimensional and luxury. The best asphalt shingles come with some combination of a 50-year warranty, class “A” fire rating, a high wind rating and a high impact rating.
Examples of color and style options include: Weathered wood, Barkwood, Slate, Charcoal. Asphalt shingles cost $300 to $600 per square foot.
