Top 5 Reasons Asphalt Shingle Roofs Still Rule Today's Market

Many Farmington homeowners understandably save up for metal or clay tile roofing. After all, if you really wanted a roof that guaranteed exceptional long-term lifespan and performance, these roofing materials are the best. However, asphalt shingles roofs have a ton of benefits that can benefit any homeowner as much as metal roofs. Such as:

Ages Well

True: you'll have minus 70 years when you use asphalt shingles instead of metal roofs. However, the 25-30-year-old average asphalt shingle roofing lifespan is perfect because you have peace of mind for another 30 years instead of second-guessing your durable roof's performance once it reaches halfway into its lifespan.

Excellent Performance During Hailstorms

Class 3 asphalt shingle roofs of the highest quality perform perfectly during the strongest hailstorms. Like wood shingles, if the roofing material does not split, it's still useful and capable of protecting the property.

A Great Number of Top-Notch Manufacturers

High-quality manufacturers across Farmington provide you with tried-and-proven roofing materials that comply with all standards and homeowner expectations.

Dependable Roofers For Installation, Repair and Maintenance

Sanderson Roofing has an excellent post about why you should choose asphalt shingle roofs. Read more about them below.

The Asphalt Shingle Advantage

The main reason why homeowners keep choosing asphalt roofing shingles is that they offer the most economical option. However, the benefits of shingles extend far beyond them simply being affordable. Shingles also provide a high level of durability for the price, offering a similar lifespan to other roofing materials. Modern shingle roofs carry warranties as long as 50 years.

Asphalt shingles are lightweight, so they won't be putting any undue strain on your roof's supporting structures. They are also waterproof, repelling moisture and helping to keep it out of your attic.

Finally, shingles are also chosen often for their appearance. Asphalt shingles come in styles and colors which can complement the overall curbside appeal of any home. Shingles can also be made to convincingly mimic the look of roofing materials such as wood, slate, and tile. (Continued)
