Asphalt roofs with shingles are the most common type of roof. Perhaps the most frequently cited benefit is the low up-front cost, with shingles costing less than other roofing material types. This fact alone accounts for the vast majority of shingle installs.
Shingles come prepackaged and ready to be immediately nailed to the deck, requiring less time and labor for both installation and replacement. Most shingles can be removed one at a time near the source of an issue, making them much easier and cheaper to fix in the event of damage or a leak.
