The Value: Let’s face it; every house will need a roof eventually. And if installed properly, with the right products, your roof can add protection, elegance, and value to one of your biggest investments, your home.

The Choice: American offers a variety of asphalt shingles and steel roofing systems for residential applications. Our asphalt shingles range from 30 yr to lifetime architectural or choose one of our steel roofing systems. Because the roof is such a large portion of your home, the large color palette available will help you choose the right color to accent your home.

Installation: American’s standard installation differs from other competitors. We do more than the minimum required by the manufacturers and NYS code to insure your roof will last.
