Advantages of Installing Asphalt Shingles
Asphalt shingles are the number one choice for roofing in the Sacramento area for good reason. They offer versatility, weather resistance and much more. When it comes time to replace your roof, it’s worthwhile to consider the benefits of asphalt shingles for your home.
After all, the roof may be the most important part of your home, as far as function goes. Neither metal nor concrete tiles match asphalt roofing for its overall combination of beauty, durability, and longevity. Asphalt shingles also require less maintenance than metal and concrete. If your roof is deteriorating, everything beneath it is at risk.
Here’s a helpful guide as to why you should choose Asphalt Shingles over other materials for your new roof.
Versatility: Asphalt shingles can cover many different angles, shapes, and forms. That means that they work with almost any type of roof, from cross hipped to Dutch gable. No matter how large or complicated your roof is, you can trust that asphalt shingles will cover it all seamlessly.
Variety of Design: Asphalt shingles are available in a range of rich architectural styles. 3-tab shingles are traditional and work with many home styles. Dimensional and premium shingles are also available in multiple styles. In fact, some mimic the look of other roofing materials, like slate and cedar shakes. This way, you can get the design advantages of these materials without their drawbacks. Asphalt shingles are also available in a huge range of colors, while other roofing materials just don’t offer as many choices.
Performance: With a proven track record in Sacramento, asphalt shingles have shown long life expectancy, fewer leak issues, and durability that other materials do not have.
Fire Protection: Some asphalt shingles feature the highest fire rating, Class A. When installed as part of a complete roof system, they offer superior protection against penetration and spread of fire in the case of external fire hazards.
Value: Perhaps the top advantage of asphalt shingles over other roofing materials is that they still offer high performance for a lower cost. Asphalt shingles are the most cost-effective roofing materials upfront, and they still last long enough to provide the most value over the long term.
Those who need more weather, fire, or wind resistance can find those features in performance shingles, without incurring too much extra cost. In the long run, metal roofing, slate roofing, shake roofing and other roofing options just don’t offer the same value for the cost of asphalt roofing.
