The most popular roofing material in America is asphalt shingles, covering more roofs than any other roofing style. Asphalt roofing is easy to install, provides a high level of protection for your home for many years and it is usually the least expensive roofing choice. At RM Frolich Roof Systems & Renovations, Inc. we offer a wide variety of asphalt shingle styles and colors that are an affordable option for your Sault Ste Marie roofing system.

An asphalt shingle is actually a composite made up of either a fiberglass or rag mat with asphalt, which is covered with colored mineral granules to provide protection and aesthetic value. Asphalt shingles are available in a range of grades - the better the grade the longer the life expectancy, which can range from 15 to more than 30 years. Some of the advantages of an asphalt roof include ease of installation, low maintenance, attractive look, light weight, and affordable cost.

Easy Installation
Asphalt shingles are among the easiest roofing materials to install, and most Sault Ste Marie roofing projects can be completed in one day. The size and flexibility of shingles make it easy to adapt them for any roof size and shape.

Low Maintenance
Many roofing materials require regular maintenance in order to retain their appearance and performance. But asphalt shingles are easy to keep clean, and can quickly be repaired or replaced if they are damaged.
