Asphalt Shingle Roofing Systems

Asphalt Roofing Systems, when installed correctly can last 50 years! People run into issues when their roofer does not properly install Ice & Water leak barrier, Step or Counter Flashing, Starter-Strip Shingles, Ridge Ventilation, or any other essential roofing component!

We at Summit are certified through Owens Corning, and GAF to install Lifetime Asphalt Roofing Systems! Asphalt Roofs are much more economical than Metal Roofing Systems. We Choose to use premium 50YR Architectural Shingles. There are many different asphalt shingles and brands, but after years of using every product under the sun we've found that GAF, and Owens Corning are by far the highest quality!

As one of Rochester's Highest Rated Asphalt Roofing Companies, you can rest assured that any roof installed by us will only have the best products and always be guaranteed for life! 

Architectural Shingles are what we choose to trust, they are much more durable and wind resistant when compared to 3-Tab shingles. An Architectural Shingle is made from fiberglass matting, tar, and asphalt granules. 


An Asphalt Roofing System is not only comprised of the shingles, the more important products are underneath the shingles! Ice & Water Leak Barrier is one of your roofs key components! Many unreliable roofers will either buy cheap Ice & Water, or not even install any at all. Believe it or not this is the only waterproof material used on a roof so you need to make sure you're receiving high quality!


Ventilation is another key area that will determine the longevity of your roofing system! Having proper intake, and exhaust ventilation keeps the plywood decking cool and dry. When you don't have proper intake or exhaust, heat sits directly under your roof, and this causes icicles and ice damming in the winter time!
