Asphalt shingles have proved for decades to be a good roofing option, and though there are some that are more durable and green, asphalt shingles definitely have their pros over the competition.
Let’s go over 3 ways asphalt might be the better roofing choice for you.
If you’re on a tighter budget or just don’t want to spend a chunk of money on a metal roof, asphalt could be a good choice. For the much lower cost, you’re still getting a durable, lasting roof to protect your home; and if installed professionally, should perform very well and last you quite a while.
If you’re planning on selling your home in a few years, the lifetime lifespan of a metal roof won’t really be an important factor for you. Since that’s one of the bigger selling points, you might be fine with an asphalt roof. Asphalt shingle roofs provide a durable, protective roofing option, but they also have the potential to look really beautiful.
Certain asphalt shingle roofs are capable of reflecting a great deal of heat from the sun. This means lower heating and cooling costs because it’s easier to maintain stable indoor temperatures.
Though asphalt shingles aren’t the most durable or energy-efficient roofing option, they do have a place on so many of our homes and offer tons of benefits.
