Asphalt shingles are the number one choice for roofing in all of North America. For a very good reason, the versatility they provide, weather resistance, and much more. If you need to replace your roof shingles should be considered. When it comes down to it the roof is the most important part of a home when it comes to function. If you don’t have a high quality roof everything under it is at a risk. Here is why you should choose asphalt shingle roofing.
Asphalt shingles can cover many different shapes and angles. Which means they can work with almost any type of roof. No matter how large or complicated your roof is, you can trust asphalt shingles will cover it. There is a minimum slope allotted for asphalt roofing however, almost every home in North America is suitable for asphalt shingles.
Shingle roofing is available in a large range of rich styles. 3-tab shingles are far more traditional and work with many different styled homes. Dimensional and premium shingles are available in multiple styles. Not only that some mimic the look of other roofing materials. That way you can have the benefits of shingle roofing while still keeping the look.
Shingle roofing is also available in many different colors on top of their styles. If you want to preserve your homes appeal or help boost the look before you sell it, shingle roofing is the best option. A vast majority of other roofing options don’t have such a wide variety.
Perhaps the number one advantage is how shingle roofing as a whole is very high performance but are listed at a very reasonable cost. Asphalt shingles are the most cost-effective roofing materials up front. Not only that but they last long enough to provide the most value long term as well. In the long run, metal roofing, slate roofing and other roofing choices don’t provide the same value that shingle roofing does.
Energy efficiency is probably the last thing you expected from asphalt shingle roofing, but it is. When these shingles are put on your roofer installs a whole system that can make your home more energy-efficient. You also can purchase shingles that were specifically designed to be cooler and reflect a high amount of the suns infrared rays. The result of this is that homeowners may need to use less energy to cool their homes.
Depending on where you live your home may have to endure severe weather as well as hailstorms. There are specifically modified asphalt shingles that are designed to take a beating and still come out in pristine condition.
In the past singles typically went straight to the landfill, now they can be recycled and are much better for the environment as a whole. When they get recycled they can also be used to fix roads and be re-purposed into a lot of other products. Older shingles can also be used to generate power.
