Asphalt Shingle Roofs in Arizona

As far as roofing types go in America, there’s one in particular that outpaces every other—and that’s asphalt shingling.

Asphalt shingle roofs are by far the leading roof type. More than 70% of all rooftops currently having asphalt shingle roofs. Even here in Arizona, where tile is quite popular, asphalt shingles still hold the leading edge over their competitors.

Alright, sure, an impressive stat… but is there any good reason for their popularity? Is this type of roof the right for your home? We go over everything you need to know below.

Shingle Roofs — They’re Better than You Remember

There are a number of reasons why so many people go with asphalt shingling when deciding how to roof their home. And two of the big ones are affordability and attractiveness.

Compared to virtually every other roofing type, shingle roofs are a more cost-efficient and visually-pleasing way to give your house a fresh look. So it’s easy to see why so many people choose shingles in Arizona.

But that’s not all. Not by a long shot.

Common Customer Roofing Concerns

When you think of a shingle roof in Arizona, you might picture a roof with a relatively conventional and repetitive look to it.


It’s true – for a long time, this repetitive look was commonly the biggest issue homeowners had with regular asphalt shingle roofs. Nowadays, however, you have far more variability in the available looks to choose from.

With the emergence of dimensional shingles (also known as architectural or laminated shingles), asphalt shingles can now be installed with an appealing three-dimensional look.

This means you aren’t restricted anymore to the uniformly flat appearance that used to be the norm for shingles. Dimensional shingles are highly customizable and exist in virtually every imaginable color, material, and style. So no matter what you are looking for you’ll easily find what you need.

Quality Dimensional Shingles Change the Game

In addition to being prettier, the quality of dimensional shingles is also just generally better all around. These shingles differ from their traditional counterparts by bonding two of the layers of material together, which results in increased durability and protection from the elements.

Some of the heaviest-duty dimensional shingle roofs can withstand up to 120 mph winds (helpful during our Arizona monsoon season!) and also have a longer lifespan – 40 years versus the typical 20 for traditional asphalt shingles.

A few people are a bit wary and skeptical when it comes to shingle roofs. They might have an idea in their heads about shingles and how they used to be. But the reality is shingle technology has come a long way.

When you boil it all down, having this added lifespan and durability can definitely help in the long run when you’re trying to cut down on costs. And it saves you some of the hassle of having to replace your roof more often, years down the road.

If you’re thinking about starting a roofing project in Arizona, we at Landmark Roofing think that asphalt shingles are a great option to consider. Feel free to contact us if you’re interested in learning more about this kind of roof and how we can help you achieve your goal.

Four Benefits of Shingle Roofs In Arizona

As pointed out above: certainly the good looks, added durability, and longer lifespan of dimensional asphalt shingles are major benefits – especially long-term.

But what about the more practical side of things?

Truth is, there are still quite a few more advantages you can look forward to with a shingle roof in Arizona, such as the following:

Asphalt Roofs are Easy to Maintain

As with any kind of roof, maintenance is one of the keys to getting the most out of it. Asphalt shingles are appealing because they require little to no maintenance. While the toughest kind of roof, in general, is tile shingles; an asphalt shingle roof is remarkably resilient in our Arizona desert climate. Should a section of the roof become damaged, a reputable roofing company should be able to repair it easily and affordably.

Asphalt Roofs are Simple to Install

Shingle roofs in Arizona are fairly simple to install. They’re flexible and sturdy, and work with a wide variety of roof designs. Many people choose asphalt shingles because the easy installation makes them more affordable. And they can fit with almost any roof due to their lightweight nature; regardless of weight restrictions.

Asphalt Roofs are Diverse in Style

One of the biggest benefits to choosing asphalt shingles for your roof is the sheer variety of colors and textures to choose from. The newer dimensional asphalt shingles are one of the most popular options today. These shingles also can be made to look like other more expensive materials like slate, tile, or wood – giving you ultimate flexibility and freedom.

Asphalt Roofs are Surprisingly Affordable

Asphalt shingles take the top spot as far as affordable roofing goes. If cost is important to you, then asphalt shingles are your best bet. This is a huge benefit since roofs aren’t typically something people want to spend a lot of money on. Part of why these roofs are so reasonably priced is because they’re easy to manufacture and install; which helps bring down the overall expense. They’re one of the most inexpensive roofing materials you can choose from today.

Overall, these four benefits make asphalt shingles one of the best choices for roofs in Arizona.
