Asphalt Shingle Roofing
Asphalt Shingle Roofing
Installation | Repair | Maintenance
Asphalt shingle roofing is the most common and popular roofing system choice for home owners across America. Its versatility, cost-effectiveness, waterproofing and easy installation are characteristics that home owners love when considering a new roofing system.
The life expectancy of a new shingle roof installation is from 10 up to 20 years depending on the maintenance and repair that each owner plans and it also depends on weather conditions; in areas with sunlight and/or extreme temperatures it’s known to reduce its life expectancy.
Some of the Advantages of Asphalt Shingle roofing are:
If your budget is tight for the initiation of your roofing project, then asphalt shingle roofing is a huge advantage for your roofing solutions. It is by far the most cost-effective solutions when it comes to new roofing installation.
Easy to Install | Low Maintenance
Besides being easy to install, asphalt shingle roofing does not require too much maintenance. If it requires a repair job, it is usually very easy to do. It’s very versatile when it comes to cutting, fastening and fitting.
Asphalt shingle roofing comes in a wide variety of sizes and colors; home owners love that. It also varies on pricing depending on the quality.
Like any other roofing material, asphalt shingle roofing has its disadvantages, the most important ones are:
Unlike metal roofing, asphalt shingle roofing does not withstand high-wind; strong currents of air can uplift and tear shingles. This is not a disadvantage if you live in areas where high-wind is unlikely. If you live in very windy areas and have the sufficient budget for a superior roofing material; we recommend getting another roofing type.
Low Life Expectancy
The cost-effectiveness usually has a price; quality. Asphalt shingle roofing is easily outlived by other (most) other roofing materials. Some people don’t mind because it is very cost-effective and they save money in short term; but if you are looking for a long term investment then look elsewhere. Keep in mind though, that if budget is tight the best option will come down to be asphalt shingle roofing.
