Hard-wearing and visually pleasing asphalt roof shingles will enhance the look of your home

Capping it all off


Of all the exterior surfaces on our homes, our roofs are exposed to the most abuse from climatic extremes. Yet, they often receive minimal, if any, maintenance, and are expected to go on protecting our homes for many years.

It's important, therefore, to choose a roofing product that will not only complement your home visually, but also offers long-lasting durability.

The Asphalt Shingle Company imports, distributes and applies both Pabco and Emco fibreglass asphalt roofing shingles.

Company director Michael McNie says asphalt shingles are one-third the weight of average concrete roofing tiles, and are extremely strong and durable. Laid over a 15mm-thick plywood base, the Harmony Z's advanced technology sets it aside from other shingles on the market, he says.

"These shingles are suitable for any climate, including harsh coastal locations. In addition to their practical benefits, asphalt shingles have a flat, sleek look that is very popular for new homes," says McNie. "Both brands of shingle are available in a choice of profiles and 15 colours."


The Asphalt Shingle Company offers a minimum 30-year warranty on all of its shingles.
