The most common type of roofing material is asphalt shingles on account of availability and price. Asphalt shingles are affordable and part of a classic style. When you choose asphalt shingles, you choose materials that will prevent water from entering your home. Many homeowners are content with this choice because of its simplicity.

Not every model home follows the traditional roof shingle standards. Newer homes can be designed to utilize polymer-modified asphalt shingles to keep water out and keep homeowners’ content safe. Polymer-modified asphalt roofing is much stronger than asphalt and less likely to crack in severe storms and weather.

Why Does The Type of Roofing Shingle Matter?

Beyond comparing the aesthetics of different colors and styles, there are other factors to consider when selecting shingles to install. When you model your roofing shingles after a specific style, you also have to consider what threats your roof faces from the elements.
