Asphalt shingles would make a great choice. These are versatile, cost effective, and offer strong and durable protection for your home. Roofing by Curry explains the benefits of asphalt shingles in this Residential Roofing Series entry.


Asphalt shingles are popular thanks to their wide array of styles, textures, and colors. Shingles can mimic the look of slate, clay tiles, or wood shake, and can enhance the appeal of any architectural style. In addition, we also offer shingles with specialized features such as increased energy efficiency and impact resistance. As a GAF Master Elite® contractor, we can install GAF’s full range of asphalt shingle products. Sarasota roof repair and maintenance also won’t be a problem.

Cost Efficiency

Research by the Asphalt Roofing Manufacturers Association indicates that asphalt shingles have the best life cycle cost when compared with other roofing materials. These cost the least to repair, renovate, repair, install, and dispose, compared with cedar shake, slate, clay and concrete tile, and metal.

Asphalt shingles are also easy to install and repair, especially when you hire qualified Sarasota roofing contractors like us. Its low weight makes transportation easy, and means that they can be used on nearly any home without the need for costly structural support. Installation is also quick and efficient so you can enjoy the benefits of your new roof in a snap.
