    One of my favorite asphalt shingle manufacturers in terms of information resource is the Atlas Roofing company (

    Their website offers useful information including a shingle visualizer, which allows you to compare the styles and colors of asphalt shingles as projected on real life houses.

    They also offer such information guides as "Homeowner'sGuide to Roofing", which, combined with their Energywise calculator, offers good tips and trick for your asphalt roofing project.
