Asphalt shingles are one of the most popular materials we use for residential roofing because they’re easy to install and pretty affordable. Which makes them a cost effective solution that most homes can afford.
But before you decide, let me give you a rundown of the benefits and drawbacks to using shingles for your next roofing project.
Versatility. Shingle roofing is really versatile. They’re easy to cut and adapt to fit the shape and specific needs that your roof might have. If you have steep slopes they are especially effective.
Cost effective. As well as the shingle being pretty inexpensive, they also don’t require any specific accessories for roof edges, wall terminations, and chimney or vent flashing. This allow for more variety and more affordable options. They require very little maintenance, and replacing broken shingles is inexpensive and accessible. Most shingles are abundantly available.
Aesthetics. Thanks to their popularity, asphalt shingles come is a vast array of colors and sizing meaning you are able to have some design options without having to break the bank.
Safety. All the brands we recommend and like to use are not only affordable but come with a Class A certification for fire protection giving you the peace of mind that your home is as safe as it can be.
Weather conditions. All in all, shingles offer great protection against most weather conditions however in strong winds they are more prone to damage than other roofing options. If you’re not prone to high winds all that often, then the affordability of installation and replacement of shingles will outweigh any potential damage caused by high winds.
They are also slightly more prone to damage from the sun over extended periods of time. Again you need to offset that with their cost effectiveness and decide if they’re a good fit for you.
Lifetime. The lifetime of a shingle roof is less than other methods, depending on how harsh the climate is. You should expect a shingle roof to last 15+ years whereas other roofing options might last up to 30 years. Your roofing contractor will show you all the options.
We have made shingle roofs a mainstay of our business because they are great quality and come with a price that’s affordable for most budgets. Our dedicated roofing contractors and roof installers are on hand to make it an easy decision. We carry samples that make it easy for your to choose.
