Weather-tight Performance

Asphalt shingles are recommended for most types of weather. They also react well to extreme temperatures, and even in areas that are prone to strong winds, rain, and ice.


When installed correctly, asphalt shingles create a water-tight and weather-proof seal in your home.

Cost-effective and Affordable

Asphalt shingles are produced in high volumes by many roofing manufacturers leading to reduced material costs. The shingles are also easily installed and applied, resulting in low application costs.


Coupled with its durability, an asphalt roof can easily match more expensive materials, even in terms of comparable usable life.

Wind and Fire Resistance

Most asphalt shingles are manufactured to comply with external fire and flammability resistance standards. Most are even rated with A, B, and C fire ratings, with A being the most resistant.


Asphalt shingles are also resistant to strong winds.

Most are even rated as hurricane-resistant and FEMA-class material (Federal Emergency Management Agency).

Quick Installation

Asphalt shingles are easily installed by professional roofing contractors. Asphalt shingles also suit most roof designs so you won't have to worry.


Easy installation means shorter project durations. This translates to less disruptions and lower labor costs.

Easy Upkeep and Cheap Maintenance Costs

When properly installed by professional Kansas City roofing companies, Missouri's asphalt shingle roofs require minimal maintenance. They are also easily repaired when damaged and at a low cost.
