It’s no mistake that asphalt shingles are the most commonly used roofing material. It’s a time-tested roofing material that’s been protecting buildings from the elements for over 100 years. Read on to learn more about some of the most significant benefits associated with the usage of asphalt shingles.
Perhaps the biggest reason they’re so widely utilized, asphalt shingles represent the most cost-effective roofing option. Many homeowners in San Antonio, Victoria, Helotes and San Marcos choose asphalt shingles as a roofing material because it is both affordable and effective.
Another consequence of being so widely adapted, asphalt shingles tend to be reasonably simple to install and just as easy to repair. Most of the time, shingle repair is a simple matter of replacing the damaged shingles. When it comes to shingle repair, the professionals at ARP are the best in the business.
Especially important here in Texas, many shingles come from the manufacturer as “impact rated,” meaning they’re specially designed to withstand the repeated impact of hail. While severe weather can still damage a shingle roof, the impact of rough weather may be reduced.
You might not know that algae is an issue in the roofing industry — especially if you have a shingle roof! Asphalt shingles are particularly effective at resisting algae growth which can damage other types of roofing materials.
When properly installed, asphalt shingles provide a reasonable amount of insulation to the attic space of a home or building. Additionally, there are shingles available that are specifically designed to reflect heat radiation to help cool the surface of your roof.
Asphalt shingles can be installed on nearly every type of roof and come in a wide range of color and design options, making them suitable for nearly every building application.
Depending on conditions like environment, installation quality and maintenance frequency, the typical shingle roof installation’s lifespan will last between 15 and 30 years. While this may not be as long as other, more costly roofing materials, the installation cost is far more affordable.
