Asphalt Shingles – the Most Durable Roofing Material
As homeowners, we do not spend a lot of time contemplating our roof. In fact, as we drive up to our home, we notice the front facing aspect of the home, we notice the landscaping, but we don’t really appreciate the roof considering its enormous job of shielding our home and all our belongings.
However, when it is time for a replacement, homeowners do appreciate the importance of their roof and want the best roofing system that will withstand the elements and last a long time.
What is the Most Durable Roofing Material?
Asphalt shingles are the most highly favored roofing choices as they are cost-effective without compromising on protection and durability. There are many grades of asphalt shingles.
Asphalt shingles come in a range of value from traditional to designer and luxury options, as well as a wide variety of colors. By choosing a higher quality shingle, you get the benefits of seeing the performance and warranties increase. Many of the higher-grade asphalt shingles are created with polymers that seal and protect against wind uplift, shingle damage, and moisture penetration.
If you live on a very wooded property, you may want a shingle that is algae resistant as your roof may not see the sun and may need some help resisting algae growth. If you live in an area that is subject to hailstorms or falling tree debris, an impact resistant option is a good plan. Perhaps you’re interested in a cool roof, where your shingles are created from a special blend of surface granule that reflects much of the solar heat, reducing roof temperature as well as minimizing transfer of that heat into your living space.
