Asphalt Shingles

asphalt shingle roofingOne of the many things first-time homeowners/dwellers will learn about is the shingle.

Most roofs have shingles. Lots and lots of shingles. In fact, there may come a time when a homeowner will have to make a decision on shingles and shingle replacement. When the time comes, it will be helpful to have some shingle knowledge.

Asphalt shingles are popular shingles for homes. Why? Simple:

  • Affordability
  • Durability
  • Attractiveness

Since asphalt shingles are recyclable, they are environmentally friendly.

Asphalt shingles are at the core of a very popular home roofing system. The asphalt shingles are not very expensive. They are manufactured and purchased in bulk. This saves on shipping and production costs.

Another attractive aspect of asphalt shingles is the installation process. Shingle roofs are one of the easier roofs to install, meaning the cost of labor and installation is often less than other methods.

Did we mention durability? Asphalt shingles have a life expectancy of twelve to twenty years, depending on conditions. These shingles also offer excellent uplift resistance and fire resistance.

The weight of asphalt shingles will be detrimental to the roof or any other part of the home. The shingles are neither too heavy nor too light.

These are just some of the reasons why a popular choice for roofing are asphalt shingles. Choose a proven home roofing installation team for asphalt shingle installation.
