The most widely installed roofing material in North America is, by far, asphalt shingles, and for good reason. They offer a laundry list of benefits to the homeowners who choose to install them on their homes! If you’re interested in learning more about the benefits of using asphalt shingles for your home’s roof replacement, keep reading below for more information!
The first reason that homeowners often choose to install asphalt shingles is that they are an economical option. Asphalt shingles are widely manufactured and available, which helps keep costs low for homeowners. If you’re interested in installing an inexpensive roofing option on your home, asphalt shingles are a fantastic option!
If you’re looking for a beautiful option for your home’s exterior, asphalt shingles are a highly customizable option that are available in a wide array of colors and style options. Due to the widespread manufacturing of asphalt shingles, you can find them in nearly any color option. Furthermore, asphalt shingles can be manufactured to resemble other roofing materials, such as wood, or slate, making them great for any style of home!
Another benefit of asphalt shingles is that they are highly durable. Since your roof is constantly exposed to the elements and inclement weather, it often deteriorates over time and it can be expensive to fix. However, asphalt shingles are renowned by homeowners & contractors alike for their ability to withstand inclement weather. Asphalt shingles are capable of withstanding anything Mother Nature has to offer, including high winds, as the starter shingles at the edges of your roof are constructed with a special adhesive!
Asphalt shingles can also be recycled at the end of their lifecycle, making them great for homeowners who are interested in using an environmentally sustainable roofing material. Furthermore, many manufacturers use partially recycled materials to build their shingles, helping to further reduce the environmental impact of the shingles.
While some roofing options require regular maintenance to ensure they are kept in good repair, once asphalt shingles are installed, there is very little maintenance required. You will want to have your roof inspected at least once a year to ensure that there are no leaks or damage that you may have missed, but asphalt shingles are extremely durable, so there is generally very little maintenance required.
