Asphalt shingles are the most widely used roofing materials in the U.S. They’re an American original, invented and first used in 1901. By 1939, the U.S. was producing 11 million squares of shingles. Today, they are still the first choice for most residential roofing needs.
Asphalt shingles are popular not because they are the most durable, but because they are some of the most cost-effective types of residential roofing in Oklahoma City, OK, and most parts of the U.S. Most home builders agree that they are also easy to install.
