Asphalt shingles are capable of excellent coverage over a wide variety of different and sometimes very complicated angles. They can work well with pretty much any kind of roof. Even if your roof is a very complicated design, asphalt shingles can ensure that your roof provides a high quality level of protection for your property that you can be proud of.
Shingle roofs are very versatile not only for their ability to cover a multitude of complicated designs, but for the wide variety of color styles you can get them in. Sometimes if you’re looking to improve the value of your property for a potential sale, or just because you want something that fits with the brickwork or design on your home, the roof color choice can really make your property stand out visually.
Asphalt shingles are a fantastically cost effective solution which offer a high performance for a low cost. Asphalt shingles are definitely one of the most cost-effective roofing materials and they are durable and reliable, meaning that for their initial cost, they will last an exceptionally long time. For a higher weather resistance that can cover high winds and rain, performance shingles can be substituted without adding too much to the cost. Metal, slate and other roofing options simply don’t offer the same value for money that you will get from quality asphalt shingles.
Shingles are an excellent choice of roof materials because they do not weigh a considerable amount. Other roofing materials, such as the ones made of metal or heavy slate can be detrimental to your property, and potentially the property cannot properly support them. This can lead to immense structural damage to your home. With asphalt shingles, this is not something you need to worry about.
When your roofer installs an asphalt shingle roof on your home, they install a system to ensure it works, this includes under-layment which can help to make your home more energy efficient. Some asphalt shingles in light, medium and dark tones are capable of reflecting a higher amount of the sun’s infra-red radiation, which will reduce the temperature of the roof. This will reduce the temperature in your home by a degree or two on the hotter, sunnier days of the year, meaning you have to use less energy to cool your home!
