The Benefits of Asphalt Shingles

The country’s most popular roofing material is asphalt shingles and this can be attributed to the material’s many benefits, from its low cost to its good looks. Here are the reasons why asphalt shingle roofing likely covers your home:

The efficient, high-volume production and reasonably low application cost of asphalt shingles offer consumers with a total value that’s hard for other roofing materials to match, especially in terms of comparable life expectancy. It’s no wonder many people choose asphalt shingles for their new construction or re-roofing projects with prices starting below a dollar per square foot.

Industry Accepted
Roofing contractors are very familiar with asphalt shingle roof installation and repair. Homeowners too have become accustomed to having it installed.

Ease of Installation
Asphalt shingles are considered to be the easiest of all standard roofing materials to apply. Additionally, the flexibility and strength of asphalt shingles supports their use on a wide variety of roof designs. Skilled roofing contractors can usually install a complete roof in one day.

Low Maintenance
When properly chosen and applied, asphalt shingles need little or no regular maintenance, and are easily repaired if damaged. A slightly damaged roof can be repaired by replacing compromised, individual shingles.

In extreme temperatures and in areas where wind, water, and ice are always present, asphalt shingles performs well. This roofing material is often engineered to be fire and hail-damage resistant. The typical lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof is 20 years. But, it is not unusual to see extended warranties provided by several manufacturers.
