Why Asphalt Shingles are a Popular Choice

There are many reasons why you see so many homes with asphalt shingles. They are the most popular roofing material for seven main reasons.

  1. Cost-effective – Asphalt shingles are the most cost-effective roofing material available. They offer one of the lowest upfront roofing costs and still give years of high performance.
  2. Versatile – The versatility of asphalt shingles is a huge draw to many homeowners. No matter the roof shape, angle or complexity, asphalt shingles can be used and will provide years and years of superior coverage.
  3. Variety – Asphalt shingles are available in many colors and styles. There are even shingles made to look like cedar shakes and slate.
  4. Energy savings – Asphalt shingles can help to save you money on your energy bills. Asphalt shingles come in various colors from light to dark. Selecting a lighter color shingle can help reduce the heat of your roof.
  5. Sound dampening – Asphalt shingles can help to lessen exterior sounds, including the sound of rain on the roof.
  6. Installation – Installing asphalt shingles is a fairly simple process, which helps to keep the cost of installation at an affordable price.
