Why Shingles Are a Great Choice for Your Roof

There are many options for roofing materials from which a homeowner can choose for a roof installation or replacement. An asphalt shingle roof is the most popular partly due to its affordability and the ability of a shingle roof repair service to fix it as needed. Let’s take a closer look at why shingles are a great choice for your roof.

Effective Roof Protection

Asphalt shingles are durable and protect rooftops against the elements, like rain and snow. They insulate your home against high heat in the summer and frigidly cold temperatures in the winter. A good roof made from asphalt shingles helps to minimize your energy costs by reducing the need for your HVAC system to run to keep your home at a comfortable temperature throughout the year. In fact, if you notice your energy costs rising, this could be a sign that something may be wrong with your roof and it needs a repair.

Decorative Shingle Patterns

Asphalt shingles are available in many colors and shades. A good roofing contractor can install decorative and eye-catching patterns that make your roof look more attractive and add to your home’s curb appeal. Asphalt shingles look great and are available in different sizes and shapes. You can consult with a roofing contractor and see which shingles are available and within your roofing budget. Your contractor can also help you choose a pattern and install a great new roof on your home.

Long Service Life

When installed correctly, maintained properly, and fixed when needed, an asphalt roof could last for 20 years or more. You get a better return on your investment and a longer life when you have a roofing company inspect and maintain your rooftop whenever you suspect damage. Shingles sometimes get blown loose by strong winds and a good shingle roof repair service can replace missing or damaged asphalt shingles so that your roof can stay in its best shape for as long as possible.
