Updated: Nov 18, 2022

Is it time to replace your roof, or are you starting a new home build? Either way, you may be wondering what is the most popular style of roof?

At A&M Roofing we have been repairing and replacing roofs in the Northern Virginia area for years. Our team of experts has seen it all and is educated on the top roofing materials for our clients.

What is the Most Popular Style of Roof?

When it comes to the average residential home there is no doubt that asphalt shingles are the most commonly requested materials for our clients.

Not only is this option generally the most cost-effective in nature, but they are effective in protecting your home against the elements.

Types of Asphalt Shingles

There are 3 types of asphalt shingles that you can choose from.

3-Tab asphalt shingles are generally the most frequently applied. They lay flat on the roof and are very inexpensive.

Dimensional shingles are very popular as they give a nice patterned look and are very popular among our clientele.

Luxury shingles are generally larger than other asphalt shingles and are created to mimic the appearance of slate.

How Long Do Asphalt Shingles Last?

Depending on the materials used, you can expect your new roof to last anywhere from 25-30 years. However, you will likely need to check in with your local roofer for maintenance and checkups over the years in order to maintain your roof’s integrity.
