When it comes to choosing a residential roofing material, asphalt shingles are a popular choice for Texas homeowners. At Meis Roofing, our asphalt shingle roofing services are in demand throughout the year for new installations, shingle replacement and repairs. But have you ever considered why this roofing material is so frequently used?

Asphalt Shingles – A Popular Residential Roofing Material

You probably see asphalt shingles on roofs all over your neighborhood. You probably also admire how those homes stand out from the rest. Asphalt shingles are the perfect roofing choice. Why? They come in a variety of colors and styles to match your home’s exterior décor. They’re affordable and they can help you achieve any look you desire. The list of advantages goes on, and we’re here to tell you the rest.

Why Asphalt Shingles Are Right for Your Home

Easy to install

This particular type of roofing material is easy to install, costing the roofer less in labor and crew members, which ultimately costs you less, too. If you are considering whether to repair to replace a roof, the complexity of installation is certainly a factor to consider.


Asphalt shingles can create a unique, custom look by adapting to all different kinds of angles, shapes, sizes, and forms.


They can simulate architectural styles such as cedar, slate, synthetic slate, and heavy cedar.

Variety of Colors

From browns and blues to greens and reds and so many other colors, your options are nearly endless!


With a Class 4 impact resistance rating, asphalt shingles have the highest impact rating, making them strong enough to withstand high winds.

Sound Protection

You can significantly reduce external noises with asphalt shingle roofing.


The best types of asphalt shingles, in combination with quality underlayment, provide an energy-efficient roofing system for your home.

Easy to Repair

Replacing a damaged or missing shingle is far less complicated than the repair work needed for many other roofing materials.

Long-Lasting Roofing Material

With high-quality materials and expert installation, asphalt shingles typically last 25–30 years – and with regular maintenance checks, potentially even longer.

Asphalt shingles are undoubtedly an excellent choice for a residential roof replacement. The cost, durability and versatility keep homeowners coming back to this popular material. However, alternative materials like slate, solar, metal, clay tiles and wood shake shingles also have benefits and are worth considering.
