Asphalt Roof Services for Sloped Roofs
what is asphalt roofing?
Asphalt shingles are composed of a blend of asphalt and minerals. For that reason, asphalt shingles are also called composite shingles. The asphalt blend sits on top of a mat. Then, the shingle is sealed with protective coatings. Asphalt shingle coatings add water proof, fire proof and UV light resistant qualities.

Composite shingles are the most popular choice for residential roofs in the Westchester County, NY. These shingles offer versatile design options for your home. Asphalt shingles also come in at the perfect price point for most home owners. However, you cannot use shingles on a flat roof.

3 types of asphalt shingles
Three Tab Shingle
The more affordable 3 tab shingle (also known as three tab shingle) style for sloped roofs will last you about 10 to 20 years, and rated to withstand winds up to 70 mph. While we don’t usually see winds higher than that in New York, there are other factors to take into consideration like your proximity to the Hudson River, or Long Island Sound.
The safer option is the Dimensional, or Architectural Shingle which lasts about 15 to 25 years on average, but often 30 years or more if you keep up with your roof and gutter maintenance. Dimensional shingles can also withstand winds up to 110 mph, and offer a variety of enhanced design options.
The third type of asphalt roof shingle is the luxury shingle. These offer premium durability, and endless customization options. If you go with the luxury roof shingle in Westchester, you’re doing it for the design.
The Best Asphalt SHINGLES
The quality of an asphalt shingle is just as important as the quality of the installation. There is a reason why asphalt shingles are so popular in Westchester. Affordability, durability, versatility and variety of types are what make composite shingles a great option for your roof. However, if composite shingles aren’t made well, your roof won’t last. When reviewing an estimate for a composite roof replacement or installation, ask about the shingle manufacturer.
