Why Are Shingles So Popular?

Why Asphalt Shingles are the Top Roofing Materials

Asphalt shingles have gained a lot of popularity and become the most widely used roofing material for homes across the nation. There are several reasons why asphalt shingles are such a common choice for homeowners, like:

  • Durability
  • Numerous visual options
  • Improved curb appeal
  • Longevity
  • Reliable protection
  • Affordability

Asphalt shingles offer affordable quality to protect your home and they give many options for anyone to benefit from. They’re a great combination of factors that makes them a perfect choice for your roof replacement or upgrade.

Low Cost, High Durability

When you need new roofing materials to protect your home, a key factor is the cost. There are a lot of materials to choose from, like metal or slate, but those can get expensive compared to the relative affordability of asphalt shingles. 

Any roofing project can already be a huge investment for homeowners, so asphalt shingles can work for almost any budget. Not only are they inexpensive products, but they’re also easy to install. The reduced need for labor during installation can further lower costs.

Because they’re a lightweight material, asphalt shingles are a lot easier to work with. Our professionals can install them easier and, usually, faster than other materials. They don’t require any special equipment or tools, either, which makes the entire process go smoothly and reduces the disruption to your daily life.

Another way that asphalt shingles can save you money is with their lifespan that’s usually around fifteen or twenty years. Many manufacturers offer a reliable warranty for their shingles, too, so there are a lot of ways that asphalt shingles are cost-effective.

Just because they have a warranty, though, doesn’t mean asphalt shingles aren’t tough. They’re built for rain, harsh winds, and extreme temperatures. They can also be impact and fire resistant, which means they can meet the needs of almost any homeowner or climate.

Asphalt shingles offer a lower cost with durability you can count on. They’re tested to meet the safety standards, so you can feel secure under your roof. Let us install asphalt shingles or answer any questions you have when you call us today!

A Wide Range of Options

One of the best things about asphalt shingles is the freedom of choice. They’re an extremely versatile material for your roof, giving you countless aesthetic options to choose from. Asphalt shingles come in many different designs and styles to make the most of your landscaping or home design.

You can personalize your roof with the various color schemes and textures of asphalt shingles. While you could spend a lot more on other materials, like wood, you could choose asphalt shingles that look like wood. In most cases, you’ll be able to find asphalt shingles that mimic whatever material you want.

Because of that, asphalt shingles are perfect for any type of home to give you the look you want at a potential fraction of the cost. Keep in mind that the visual of your property can improve your property value.

You could choose to complement other features of your home with your shingles. Since the curb appeal’s affected by the overall look of your property, it’s an important factor to consider when choosing your asphalt shingles. Our experts can recommend the best options to maximize your property when you give us a call now!

Feel Secure with Asphalt Shingles

Roofing materials are there to protect you and your home from the elements. The goal is to keep water out, because exposed underlayment can lead to moisture getting to the decking and attic. You could then have to deal with water stains, mold, or infestations of bugs, so you need to trust your materials.

Asphalt shingles hold up well against rain and prevent rain from getting inside your home. Proper installation can play a role, which is why it’s important to work with our roofing experts to have the right sheathing.

You can also feel good about choosing asphalt shingles, since most recent manufacturing uses more recycled content. That means that your shingles are a more environmentally-conscious option. 

It also means that, when your asphalt shingles have run their course and need replacing, they’re more recyclable than other materials. They’re often made with the standards of energy efficiency in mind, so you can feel secure about your protection and leave a smaller footprint when you call A+ Remodeling and Restoration today!

Other Benefits of Asphalt Shingles

We’ve discussed a handful of the benefits that come with choosing asphalt shingles for your roof. If you want the short version of reasons you should consider asphalt shingles if you need a roof replacement or want to change materials, here are some of the key benefits:

  • Durability
  • Cost-effective
  • Assisted insulation properties to potentially lower your energy bills
  • Versatility
  • Easy for us to install, which means reduced labor
  • Increased curb appeal
  • Low-maintenance materials, needing only a routine inspection and infrequent cleaning

The last one is important, since algae growth is a common issue with roofing materials. You won’t have to worry about keeping your asphalt shingles clean, because they’re resistant to algae as well as impacts and fire.

No matter what climate you live in or what you want out of your roofing materials, asphalt shingles are popular for many reasons. They offer the kind of durability that you usually only get with more expensive materials.

Between all of the practical benefits and aesthetic options, asphalt shingles offer something for any homeowner. They’re also cost-efficient with many ways to potentially save, so they’ll work on almost any budget. 

Of course, asphalt shingles need to be installed properly to be the most effective. Our experts at A+ Remodeling and Restoration have a lot of experience with them, since asphalt shingles are the most common material for roof replacements in the country.

Whether you want to protect your home with reliable materials, don’t want to deal with high-maintenance roofing, or you want a sustainable material that won’t leave a footprint for the environment, call us today about your asphalt shingles!
