When it comes to selecting a residential roofing system, asphalt shingles continue to provide a beautiful, affordable and reliable roofing solution for any home. In addition to having a variety of styles, textures, and colors to choose from, asphalt roofing shingles are cost-effective, durable and easy to maintain.
Some varieties of asphalt shingles are manufactured to resemble tile, wood, cedar shakes or slate, while providing more benefits than other roofing materials. Neither metal nor concrete tiles match asphalt roofing for its overall combination of beauty, durability and longevity. Asphalt shingles also possess a greater ease of installation and require less maintenance than metal and concrete.
Aside from their stylish appearance and cost-efficiency, asphalt shingles are also very easy to install. This feature makes them especially attractive to homeowners. However, if it’s your first time installing a roof, it may be wise to at least consult with a professional, since most roof failure issues are related to improper DIY installations.
Maintenance and Repairs
It’s far easier to maintain and repair asphalt shingles than metal, steel or wood shingles. To prevent damages, it’s necessary to do regular roof repairs at certain time periods depending on the roof type, material, and area. Essentially, it’s always advised to do such repairs before the snow and rainy season.
Maintenance and repair costs are relatively easy on your wallet, it all depends on the manufacturer’s warranty, roof lasting period, terms of services and other measures laid down by the contractors in your area.
