Why an Asphalt Shingle Roof is a Solid Choice

If you read our blog, you know we have several roofing options to choose from and have previously discussed metal and copper as options for your roofing choice. At Harbor Roofing & Siding, we feel it important to give you options of what is best in the roofing field. Take a look at the benefits asphalt shingles offer.asphalt shingle wilmington nc

1. Variety of designs – Many years ago, there were two shingle colors – black and gray shades. Now, there are plenty of different colors available as well as many different designs. We offer a variety of choices, and most are designed to fit a particular budget.

2. Long life – Years ago, shingles had a very limited life, but the technology has made strides in the construction industry. Shingles will last 20 – 30 years on average with longer times possible depending on several factors. Regardless, a freshly shingled roof is good for several decades and then some.

3. Safety – The roof over your home is a vital element to keeping you and your family safe. Asphalt is highly rated against severe weather, high winds, UV rays and more.

4. Quick install – Asphalt goes up and comes down quickly. This means a crew can have a fresh roof on your home in a day or two on average. This is a great money saving feature.

5. Easy on the wallet – Compared to some other materials, asphalt is relatively inexpensive. Add the quickness they go on the home, and you have a budget friendly home construction project.

  1. I really like how this article talks about how shingles have a variety of designs and that is why it’s a good decision to have them. From my experience with shingle roofing, I can tell you that it’s a very wise decision to use them because they last long and they look good. I have a friend who has slate roofing that keeps cracking and I am going to pass this information on to her!

  2. I had no idea that asphalt shingles could last so much longer than the older types of shingles. That right there is already a major benefit of using them in roofing. If they’re more durable as well then they’d be even better since you wouldn’t have to replace your roof as often then.

  3. It’s good to know that a shingle roof is a little more cost-effective than other options. My wife and I have a pretty limited budget for the home we’re building later this year, and we’ve been looking at places where we can save some money. I think if we go ahead with a shingle roof instead of another material type, we’d be able to put that money to benefiting other aspects of our new home.
