Asphalt shingles are the most common and popular residential roofing material, as they offer excellent versatility, durability, and affordability. Modern asphalt shingles are a composite material that includes a fiberglass reinforcement to prevent tearing. Asphalt shingles are offered in three tab and architectural styles, each of which has some advantages:
Three tab shingles
Consistent shingle size
Less weight than architectural shingles
Various sizes and shapes create a dimensional appearance
Thicker shingles are more durable
Generally help improve property value
As an added benefit, roof repair can be handled relatively easily with asphalt shingles. The roofing pros at NMC Exteriors & Remodeling can help you decide what type of asphalt shingles are the best fit for your home depending on your needs and budget.

NMC Exteriors received this lovely letter from a happy customer:
July 13, 2018Our house was affected by the hailstorm of June 2017. Shortly after the storm, many companiesknocked on doors with the promise of working with insurance companies and replacing roofsand siding. NMC Exteriors was no different, however, we would soon find out they were, in fact,different—for the better. Jon Laroque first knocked on our neighbor’s door. From their shortconversation, our neighbors could tell Jon had great professionalism and honesty. They were soimpressed with the way he handled himself that they passed his name to us. I am so glad theydid. After meeting and talking with Jon myself, I couldn’t agree more. Jon was in factwonderful. From start to finish, he handled everything. He was at my house when the insuranceinspector came and worked as our advocate to ensure we received total damage money. Sincewe needed to wait until the winter passed to actually replace the roof, Jon kept me up to date so Iwould know when they would begin the project. Once spring came, the NMC team wasamazing. They arrived early and had our roof completely replaced by 2 p.m. that day. It was awell-oiled machine for them to complete such a large project in such a short amount of time.The only way something like this could happen is with efficiency and they are efficient. Oncethe roof was completed, the team did a very thorough job of cleaning up our entire yard,including the nails. I was warned by friends that I would find nails for months and I shouldn’t besurprised if I got a flat tire at some point. That couldn’t have been farther from the truth.Once the job was complete, Jon again followed up with me to make sure I was 100% satisfied.In addition to Jon, the office staff was very easy to work with as well. They helped answer allmy questions with regards to working with the insurance to process the payment. Sometimesworking with insurance companies can be overwhelming, but with their help, they made it quiteeasy. Everyone at NMC Exteriors knows what they are doing. Each person does their specifiedjob seamlessly which in turn made the whole process painless for me as the customer. I wouldwhole-heartedly recommend them to anyone in need of exterior work.
Everyone who came out, Jeb was exceptional to work with, he was more than I could have expected. He took care of everything and made sure that I did not have to deal with the insurance company. If I had any questions they addressed them right away.
Worked with Luke for replacing my roof and gutters. All went great, work was done the days it was scheduled and they cleaned up behind themselves. Thank you.
Unmatched beauty. Although there are some maintenance challenges, it's hard to beat the appearance of wood shingles.
Wood is another common material for residential shingled roofs. Wood shingles have a beautiful finished appearance and generally provide very good durability. Wood shingles are cut with a saw and have a consistent thickness and shape, while wood shakes are split and are usually thicker and rougher. Either option can be used depending on the look you want to achieve and the style of your home.
While wood shingles and shakes are a great roofing material, there are a couple drawbacks. These roofs can be expensive to install, and they will require more maintenance than an asphalt shingle roof. However, the benefits of wood shingles still make them a popular choice -- especially for historic homes.
The gold standard. Slate roofing is the best roofing material available, but installation is pricey.
When it comes to roofing materials, nothing beats slate. Slate shingles are slivers of rock that are cut in the shape of shingles and installed as the roofing material. Slate is a versatile material that has unmatched appearance and durability, making it a fantastic choice for any home.
However, slate roofs are very expensive and very heavy, sometimes requiring additional work to the structure before installation. Slate can be difficult to work with as well, meaning an experienced and skilled contractor is a necessity. If you're interested in slate roofing, the experts at NMC Exteriors & Remodeling can help you find the best solution and give you a high-quality installation.
