When it comes to roofing materials, asphalt shingles still remain the go-to choice among homeowners because they provide the perfect combination of energy efficiency, long-term performance, and cost-effectiveness. At Hershey Exteriors, we take pride in performing residential roof installation jobs using this exceptional roofing choice. Find out why people still choose them over other roofing options below.
High-quality asphalt shingles have a sturdy fiberglass backing, saturated asphalt and an outermost layer of ceramic granules. The result is a roofing material that, when installed properly and maintained regularly, can protect your home against the elements, from the sun’s UV ray and wind, to rain and snow.
Asphalt shingles are a cost-effective option when compared to other roofing options. It is arguably the main reason why they remain popular even today — a durable choice at a reasonable cost. So valuable are asphalt shingles that they don’t even take up a huge part of one’s budget in a roof replacement project. Installed properly, and you can expect a roofing system graced with these shingles to last up to 25 to 30 years.
Whether you require residential roof repair or replacement, you are sure to find an asphalt shingle color or style that will match the architecture of your home. Asphalt shingles’ versatility is top-notch that some roofing manufacturers offer products that imitate the look of other roofing options, including wood shakes and slate. With choices ranging from traditional three-tab installments to dimensional designs which can increase the curb appeal of many homes, you can choose between a classic, elegant look to something more modern depending on your preferences.
Asphalt shingles are a sustainable choice for new roof installations or replacements. Those that are past their service life can be reused to pave highways and build structures. This minimizes landfill waste, preserving the environment overall. Also, some asphalt shingles have properties that allow them to reflect as much of the sun’s heat as possible. This, in turn, helps households lower their energy bills and minimize cooling requirements.
