Asphalt Shingles: The Best Way To
Protect Your Home From The Elements

Texans have many options when it comes to roofing materials. However, with the benefits and drawbacks of each option, it can be difficult to choose the right material. While other roofing options exist, we highly recommend asphalt shingles for their durability and aesthetic appeal.


In North America, asphalt shingles are the most commonly used roofing material and continue to be homeowners’ top pick. Asphalt shingles are made from either fiberglass or cellulose mat, which is reinforced with asphalt and mineral granules. They have been used for over 100 years and are quite durable. With many colors and styles to pick from, you can find the perfect fit for your home’s style and look.


Asphalt shingles are a type of roofing material that is easy to install and maintain. They can last for decades if you take care of them, but if any damage appears, they can be replaced without needing to repair other sections of your roof.

Types Of Asphalt Shingles For Texas Residents

Many people prefer asphalt shingles because they are inexpensive and easy to install, as well as being durable. There are several types of roofing shingles to choose from, depending on your location and what kind of look and durability you want.

Three-Tab Asphalt Shingles

The three-tab shingle is the most basic form of asphalt shingle, and it was the original type used when this roofing material was first invented. Its flat surface and appearance give it a look that is similar to slate.

Architectural Asphalt Shingles

Laminate or dimensional shingles, more commonly known as architectural shingles, are the most sought-after asphalt shingles. This type of asphalt shingle is two or more layers fused to create a thicker appearance.

Three-Tab Asphalt Shingles

Luxury shingles are the highest quality laminated shingles you can buy. They offer an upgraded look, feel, or coloring that is superior to dimensional shingles. Not only are luxury shingles beautiful to look at, but they also provide superior protection against the elements.

Keep Your Asphalt Shingle Roof
Looking It's Best All Year Long

  • Asphalt shingles are a great option for many homeowners because they are affordable, lightweight, easy to install, and  can be used on almost any type of home.
  • Shingles come with a wide range of warranties, some lasting only 20 years while lifetime warranties are also available. It is important to ask your roofing contractor about manufacturers’ warranties before making a purchase.
  • The harsh Texas weather conditions can be especially brutal on your roof. In contrast, asphalt is a much more sturdy material that can better tolerate these tough conditions.
  • Asphalt shingles are simple to keep up and clean. However, hiring a professional to clean the roof is best since water damage can occur to the material.
  • If your roof is covered in moss, algae, or black algae, you can remove it by applying a bleach solution.
  • Asphalt shingles are among the easiest type of roofing to repair. If you ever need to have your asphalt shingles repaired, our contractor will be more than happy to help you.

  • We had Hail damage. Speak with John Vogt. He’ll explain everything, how it all works to get your complete roof repaired quickly. They work with the insurance companies to explain everything. I recommend them. Give them a call because they perform a FIVE STAR job from communication in the beginning, hard quality work on our roof until communication at the end and after project completion. Because they have a large team, they complete the job quickly, from start to cleanup. Our roof took less than a day. Call John Voght for your roofing and restoration needs.

  • I called David @ Hometown Roofing for a 2nd opinion on my roof after the 5.3.21 severe hail storm. David was very attentive, patient and informative with all my questions. When my insurance company denied the claim David intervened with the insurance company and my roof was replaced. The roofing crew was courteous, respectful, hard working and careful with my landscaping and left no debris behind. And the roof looks great. I would highly recommend Hometown Roofing to anyone - they went above and beyond from start to finish.
