Asphalt shingles has been the most widely used residential roofing material for years, but did you know they can work for commercial roofs as well? Listed below are the major advantages of investing in asphalt shingles for your commercial roof.

Impact Resistance – An impact resistance rating of 1-4 makes them ideal for inclement weather conditions, such as hail storms.

They have also been shown to increase road and pavement resistance to fungal growth and fatigue cracking.
