Benefits of Asphalt Shingle Roofing

Benefits of Asphalt Shingle Roofing A roof replacement is one of the biggest projects you may ever need for your home. And while investing in a new roof may not feel as glamorous as splurging on a kitchen remodel or having a new deck built, it may nonetheless be the most important home improvement update you make. After all, your roof protects everything under it from the elements and needs to be in tip-top shape to continue doing so.

The good news is that homeowners who are faced with a roof replacement have the opportunity to select quality roofing materials to ensure their new roof lasts and won’t need to be replaced again for long into the future. And a heavy investment in materials such as slate and steel isn’t necessarily the only way to get a durable roofing system. In fact, the right asphalt shingle roofing can also protect your home for decades on end, providing long-term peace of mind.

How Asphalt Shingles Are Built

Asphalt roofing shingles typically feature a fiberglass base, topped with a layer of asphalt and ceramic granules. Each of these individual elements plays a role in protecting your home—the fiberglass gives the shingle strength, the asphalt waterproofs it, and the granules add color and help to deflect UV radiation. Asphalt shingles come in three general types: 3-tab shingles, architectural shingles, and multi-layer shingles. Three-tab shingles are cost effective, but architectural and multi-layer shingles are safer investments for performance.

Low Costs—A Benefit Every Homeowner Can Appreciate

Asphalt shingle roofing costs less than other types of roofing. In fact, according to the Consumer Reports Roofing Buying Guide, asphalt roofing shingles range in price from $65–$350 per square foot. Compare this to the price range of faux slate roofing, which is $310–$500 per square foot, and metal roofing, which is $850–$1,140 per square foot. Asphalt roofing is the clear winner in terms of upfront costs. Plus, it is typically easier to install than other types of roofing and therefore comes with lower labor costs.

An Attractive Appearance to Boost Curb Appeal

A roof replacement will not only better protect a home from the elements, but it will also give the homeowner an opportunity to freshen up the exterior design. Most asphalt shingles are available in a variety of beautiful colors, and the right blend can work wonders for improving curb appeal.
