Out of all the roofing materials that are available, asphalt shingles are probably one of the most affordable choices, making them a good option for homeowners on a budget.
Shingles come in a variety of different styles, colors and materials. This means that they can fit many home styles without looking out of place.
Shingle are light and easy to cut, making them relatively easy to install.
Asphalt shingles do not rust or corrode so you don’t need to worry about it.
Asphalt shingles last 25-35 years compared to metal & tile roofing which last about 50-75 years. Simply because they are lighter, cheaper and more prone to damage.
Asphalt shingles can be more vulnerable to strong winds, which can cause them to detach, making your roof more vulnerable to leaks.
Excess moisture can cause the shingles to rot quickly causing growth of moss and vegetation on your roof, which may block water from running off your roof and lead to other damage.
Be sure to conduct proper maintenance to avoid unnecessary damage to your roof.
Due to the impact of anything, including tree limbs and hail, that can break or crack shingles, it is crucial to conduct regular maintenance & inspections to avoid water leaks.
