Asphalt Shingles

At Shake Guys, we pride ourselves on being masters of all home restoration services.



 Taking on asphalt roofing is simply a return to our original area of expertise. We were plainly a cedar shake expert for 5 years before adding asphalt to the lineup by public demand. It goes without saying in the roofing industry, “if you can install cedar you can install anything to perfection”.



While Shake Guys is ready to accommodate its clients' wishes, we still highly recommend GAF roofing products. Why? GAF has the best products with the best track record.



There really are plenty of reasons why one should start with North America’s #1 shingle manufacturer:

The Timberline series is the bestselling shingle ever

There are more colors and series than any other manufacturer

The 50-year lifetime warranty on their high definition shingles is perhaps the most legitimate available

Most of GAF’s designer series offer added insulation value, strength, and beauty

GAF has earned more awards for excellence than any other asphalt shingle manufacturer

GAF makes all other needed parts for a complete roofing system which adds to the long-lasting lifespan one should expect from their roof

No other manufacturer spends as much on R&D

The best reputation among roofers for quality

What is the turnaround time on an asphalt roof?

  • Crew Size

    When hiring a roofer, people focus on speed as one of the most important factors. Installing a roof is a multi-step process, and for a roofing company with a crew of two or three roofers, the average roofing job may take a whole week. That’s a lot of racket! Shake Guys uses the same amount of labor for asphalt roofing as it does for cedar shake roofing. Each project is handled by a project manager, foreman, and at least three craftsmen.

  • Timeline

    Asphalt roofs can typically be replaced in one day by Shake Guys on smaller to average size homes. The only thing that could delay this is decking problems or weather interference. It is not uncommon for jobs to take up to 3 days to complete in large homes, with the third day being a rarity due to unforeseen circumstances.
