Durability. Asphalt shingles typically have a 15- to 30-year warranty, which gives homeowners confidence that they’ll last a long time. These shingles perform well in a variety of conditions and can withstand hailstorms, heavy snow, fallen branches and more. Additionally, asphalt shingles can stand up to high winds and offer superior protection against fire. With asphalt shingles, you can be sure that you’re getting more value for your money. They’re cost-effective upfront and also in the long run.

Design variety. You can choose from a wide selection of asphalt shingle styles to suit various homes. Typically, three-tab shingles work with different home styles due to their traditional look. However, if you want your home to feature the aesthetic of slate or cedar shakes, there are asphalt shingles that are made to mimic the look of these roofing materials as well.

Energy efficiency. Asphalt shingles are also a good option to consider if you’re concerned about energy efficiency. Asphalt shingles generally have good UV resistance, so they can effectively reflect the sun’s UV rays instead of absorbing them. This is essential in keeping your home cooler during the summer and regulating the temperature of your interior throughout the year. Furthermore, this also means that your attic and home’s structure can be protected against the harmful effects of heat and humidity.

  1. After researching the types of roofs out there, we have decided to go with asphalt. It is nice that asphalt has strength and durability. I like that there is a wide selection of asphalt shingles to suit many homes. Their energy efficiency is a plus too. When our kitchen started leaking, we were sad to see how much the attic had been damaged by worn-out shingles. We will be calling a roofer immediately in spite of the cold weather.

  2. Thank you for explaining how asphalt shingles are energy efficient because they reflect the sun’s UV rays instead of absorbing them. My husband and I are thinking about replacing our roof since it’s starting to show some significant damage. We’ll be sure to keep asphalt shingles as a contender since it seems like it could give you a lot of bang for your buck.
