When it comes to protecting your home’s exterior, your roof has a tough job of keeping your home protected from the top-down. Asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing material in the entire United States because of they’re affordable and sturdy. They come in a large variety of colors and styles, plus they can improve your home’s curb appeal.
Benefits of Asphalt Roofing:
Easy Installation: Asphalt roofing projects can be completed in about one day, which isn’t always the case for other roofing materials.
Low Maintenance: Roofing materials like slate and copper require much more maintenance throughout the year.
Aesthetic: The colors and styles that asphalt roofing can come in cannot be matched by metal or slate; you can achieve an elegant look at low-cost.
Lightweight: Asphalt shingles are lighter than most other roofing materials, so they don’t put stress on your home’s structure.
Types of Asphalt Shingles
3-Tab Asphalt Shingles
The most common type of asphalt roofing shingle on homes throughout the United States, it looks like three separate pieces that when installed, look like they’re one singular piece. Shingles with 3-tab construction are designed to last between 12 and 15 years after their installation. They’re the ideal choice for most homeowners because they can handle New England weather with ease, and have proven to do so for generations.
Besides 3-tab shingles, architectural shingles are another extremely popular roofing shingle material. They do an even better job of mimicking other roofing materials like wood or slate. Architectural shingles are even tougher than 3-tab options; they can handle higher winds and more extreme weather than other options. If you’re looking for a more interesting and stylish looking roof, architectural options are what you’re looking for.
