Five Benefits Of Asphalt Shingles

Here in Akron and Canton, asphalt shingles are the number one choice for homeowners. There is a good reason for this. They offer weather resistance, versatility, and style options. If you are considering replacing your roof, you may want to consider going with asphalt shingles. So let's look at why choosing to go with asphalt shingles is a good choice for you. 

  1. Asphalt Shingles Are Versatile:

These shingles can cover many different forms, shapes, and angles. This means that they can be used on almost any type of roof. No matter how large or complicated your roof measures, asphalt shingles can cover it seamlessly. While there are slope requirements for asphalt roofing, almost all homes in Akron and Canton are suitable for asphalt shingles. 

  1. They Are Cost-Effective:

The greatest advantage of asphalt shingles is that they offer high performance at a lower cost. The initial cost and lifespan provide homeowners with the most value over time. To increase that efficiency, even more, performance shingles are more weather, fire, and wind resistance and the extra cost is minimal. 

  1. Asphalt Is Energy Efficient:

Not many people consider asphalt shingling to be energy efficient but when you purchase an asphalt roof, your professional roofer installs an entire system that includes underlayments that make your home more energy-efficient. Asphalt shingles are also available in different colors that will reflect the temperature of the roof surface. Many homeowners here in Akron and Canton use “cool” shingles, which can run one to two degrees lower on hot sunny days, thereby lowering their cooling bills. You can also choose the type of underlayment that will provide a cooler surface. 

  1. They Come In A Variety Of Choices:

Today’s asphalt shingles are available in many different architectural styles. While the 3-tab shingles are the ones most homeowners are familiar with there are many other dimensional and premium shingles available. Some even mimic the look of more expensive roofing materials such as slate and cedar shake roofs. In addition, the choices available can allow you to make a custom roof of your dreams. 

  1. Asphalt Shingles Offer More Protection:

High winds, snow, and hail are some weather problems we face here in Akron and Canton. In weather like that you want your roof to stay put and protect you. Many manufacturers of asphalt shingles offer high wind limited warranties and can sustain winds of up to 110-130 mph winds. Shingles also come with fire ratings and with a Class A asphalt roof system you can protect your family against the spread and penetration of fire.
