Most roofs last well over 50 years.
That’s good, but that also means you’ve probably never had to replace it before now. So when it comes to getting a new roof, what type of material should you buy? We’ve put together this guide to show you the three main benefits of asphalt shingles and why you should schedule an asphalt shingle installation for your home.
Make sure you keep reading below to learn more!
1. It’s Affordable
Asphalt shingles are the cheapest type of roofing material out there. You won’t have to spend more than a dollar or two per square foot, which is a lot more affordable than many other roofing options.
On top of that, asphalt shingles are easy to install. The process is much faster and easier than other materials, meaning you won’t have to spend as much money on labor costs.
2. There Are a Lot of Design Options
You aren’t stuck with one color when you choose these types of shingles. In fact, you can pick from a variety of colors, such as brown, grey, red, green, blue, etc. If you don’t like the look of square shingles, you can also change the style to dimensional, octagonal, or luxury shapes.
Wish you could have a different roofing material but want to save money? You can also install asphalt shingles that look like wood, shingle, or slate.
This means you can find asphalt shingles that match your home’s style, regardless of weather you have a modern home, a rustic home, etc.
3. It’ll Last a Long Time
Once you install asphalt shingles on your roof, you won’t have to worry about them for another 100 years (so it’s a one and done deal). These shingles can withstand any type of weather, be it snow, rain, hail, heavy winds, hot temperature, etc.
And you don’t have to do a lot to maintain it. As long as you’re having a professional give your roof a thorough inspection at least once a year, you can sit back and enjoy your new shingles.
If the roofing contractor finds any repairs during their inspection, make sure you take care of them right away. The damages will just get worse the longer you put them off, and even a small leak can cost you a lot of money. The water can spread through your entire house, which can lead to mold growth and rot.
It’s always better to spend the money right away than deal with a major problem later.
