When it comes to the roof of your home, there’s no shortage of options to choose from. There’s a wide array of roofing materials to choose from to fit your needs, but asphalt shingles have remained the most popular roofing material for decades! Asphalt shingles are a favorite among roofing contractors and homeowners alike for multiple reasons.
Installing a new roof is a significant expense. Most homeowners don’t have that kind of money just lying around, so it’s essential to find an affordable option. Asphalt shingles are one of the most affordable roofing solutions on the market! They also offer a great overall value for the price regarding how well they hold up over time. Asphalt shingles give homeowners the ability to upgrade their roofs without blowing their budget out of the water.
As the current environmental crisis worsens, the eco-friendliness of home purchases is becoming more important to homeowners. Asphalt shingles can easily be recycled when it’s time for them to be replaced. That means you won’t be adding more unnecessary waste to the landfill, but instead, you’ll be supporting the eco-friendly recycling industry!
Certain roofing materials, like slate, are challenging to install because of their weight. Asphalt shingles are one of the easiest roofing materials for contractors to install. The quick and easy installation doesn’t require any special tools either, which keeps the labor costs low. Future repairs are just as easy! Shingles that are missing or damaged can easily be repaired without the need to replace the whole roof. Keeping up with those minor, affordable repairs will help extend the overall lifespan of your roof too! Any licensed roofing contractor should have plenty of experience repairing asphalt shingles. This makes it easy to find someone to get the job done if you’re on a quick timeline or experiencing a water leak that needs to be fixed ASAP.
Your roof plays a big part in how your home looks. Asphalt shingles are classic, timeless, and fit into any design plan. You can purchase asphalt shingles in a variety of colors to compliment your siding. Over time, asphalt shingles have even become available in different shapes and textures so they can mimic other roofing materials without the added cost or maintenance! Installing new asphalt shingles on your home will give it an instant facelift that you and your neighbors are sure to notice. If you ever decide to sell the house, that improved curb appeal will attract more potential buyers!
