Asphalt Shingles

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
  • Lower cost

Architectural shingles

  • Various sizes and shapes create 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 ARAC Roof It Forward can help you decide what type of asphalt shingles are the best fit for your home depending on your needs and budget.

    By Lee
    Gainesville, GA

    We had another company come by and inspect our roof. They were unable to work with our insurance company and were very high pressure. Todd Baraff from Roof it Forward came by, and I was skeptical at first because of my experience with the other company. We allowed them to take a look at our roof, and they were able to work with our insurance company and get it done quickly, and it looks amazing. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Great experience from beginning to end!

    The fact that your mission statement indicates that your company is "God Centered" and give back to the community was big factor. Additionally your recommendation from Trust Dale and the fact that you are a Platinum rated supplier with Owens Corning also had a significant impact on our choice.

    It's rare that the entire process in any business transaction comes off exactly as planned, but that is exactly what happened with ARAC. In addition, Mel went beyond what other contractors recommended as they reviewed the property. Again Mel's advise was 100% on target. One of my best experiences contracting a service.

    Wow! What a great experience it was working with the team at ARAC! Jeff Lapham was very professional and knowledgeable about his company and the entire process. He made me feel completely at ease. This was because he took ownership of the job and took control while keeping me in the loop. He was very thorough throughout the entire project explaining everything from the insurance process, the timing, expectations and results. The entire process took less than a month from the moment we met until the completion of the roof. We went out of town the day the project started. When we came home there was no mess and the roof looked amazing. It turned out even more beautiful than I thought. I will recommend ARAC and Jeff to my neighbors and friends. Awesome job!!

    It was a new experience having a roof replaced due to storm damage. It was also a new experience dealing with the insurance since we had Atlas Chalet shingles. However, Encompass Insurance did the right thing and replaced the shingles at a cost of 20k. The entire process was managed with professionalism, efficiency, quality and customer satisfaction. Mel is just a great young man. His management skills are excellent and are the contributing factor to our positive experience throughout this entire process. The world needs more people like this young man. And, he never missed a beat even though he and his wife had a beautiful baby girl while working with us. What a precious family. Mel...THANK YOU for treating us like family.

    Customer Review

    By Juliann C.
    Suwanee, GA

    I worked with Casey Beaver to get my roof replaced after a hail storm. My insurance company was initially only willing to pay for half the roof. But Casey took the time to come out three or four times to get all the information to the insurance company. Thanks to him they paid for the entire roof as well as a few other things. He was very courteous and was great about communicating with both myself and the insurance company. The roofers also did a great job. I have a dog and was very concerned that there would be nails on the ground afterwards. After a week (and checking that night) I never found one on the ground. Overall, I would highly recommend the company.

Wood Shingles

wood shingle roofing

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.

Slate Roofing

slate roofing

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 ARAC Roof It Forward can help you find the best solution and give you a high quality installation.
