Reasons Why Asphalt Roof Shingles Are the #1 Choice in America

Due to their relatively low price, durability and ease of installation, asphalt roof shingles are the most popular type of shingle in America. In fact, according to bestpickreports.com, more than 15 billion square feet of them are manufactured and installed every year. So, if you need to re-roof your home, asphalt roof shingles are an excellent option. Here’s why:

  • Asphalt roof shingles are low-maintenance and can be easily repaired.
  • In comparison to other common roofing options (tile, metal, wood, slate, etc.), asphalt shingles are the most economical.
  • You get more diversity of style than any other roofing material.
  • They are easy to recycle.
  • Virtually all asphalt roof shingles carry an A rating for fire-resistance.

Among the most important elements of asphalt shingles are the ceramic granules which are embedded in the final coating. It is these granules that give the shingles that distinctive grainy look, but more importantly, they protect the shingles from the sun’s UV rays.

Some asphalt shingles also contain copper or zinc-coated granules to protect against the growth of algae, which causes streaks and stains. Typically, this resistance lasts for 10-20 years. If your home is in a humid, warm climate, be sure to ask your roofing contractor about the algae-preventing option.

Although the lifespan of asphalt shingles varies according to brand and type, the key to longevity and the integrity of a roof lies in proper installation. In terms of function and appearance, asphalt roof shingles are highly customizable. Talk to your local roofing installer to determine which type will work best for your home.
