Choosing a roofing material or style can be overwhelming when it comes time to get a roof replacement. Asphalt shingles are the most common roofing material across the United States, and for good reason. If you’re having trouble choosing a roofing material, let us make a case for this classic option—let’s review the benefits of using asphalt shingles in your roof replacement.
Versatile Styling Options
Asphalt shingles offer a classic look, but you’re not limited to the traditional black rectangles. The traditional three-tab, architectural, and luxury shingles are your main options, and they can be blue, black, green, red, or brown. If you prefer a different texture, asphalt shingles can also mimic other materials, such as cedar shake and slate.
Cost-Effective and Easy To Install
Shingles are relatively inexpensive. Even high-quality, impact-resistant shingles pay for themselves. Not only are asphalt shingles easy to install—lowering labor costs—but it’s also much easier and much less expensive to replace individual shingles when damage occurs. Asphalt shingles last an incredibly long time, typically 20–30 years!
Durable and Damage Resistant
Your roof protects the interior of your home from weather damage, so it will take a beating from time to time. One of the benefits of using asphalt shingles in your roof replacement is that they’re highly durable and resistant to fire, mold, and mildew. However, if you live in an area where severe hailstorms are common, modified asphalt shingles with high-impact ratings are ideal.
Highly UV Resistant
Many people believe that if they don’t live in a sunny region, they don’t need UV-resistant roofing materials, but this isn’t the case. UV-resistant roofing keeps your home cool in the warmer months and regulates the roof’s temperature all year. Asphalt shingles have a coating of granules that makes them reflective, boosting energy efficiency for your home.
Even the highest quality roofs with the best materials need maintenance, so let the professionals take on the job. At Conde Roofing & Construction, we offer fully insured, expert roof replacement services, so you’re guaranteed quality craftsmanship every time.
