While asphalt roofing shingles are nothing new (they were developed in the early 1900s), they’ve grown to be the most popular type of roofing material in North America. Nowadays, when you walk or drive by a home, chances are its roofing system is made from asphalt shingles. At Carolina Home Remodeling, we proudly offer CertainTeed asphalt shingles, and here are a few reasons why:
Because asphalt shingles are so popular, they can be crafted into a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, giving your home virtually any look you desire. They’re also flexible enough to adapt to many different roofing shapes and slopes, so no matter what type of roof you have, it will look great with asphalt shingles.
What makes asphalt shingles such a smart investment is that they’re not only beautiful and durable, they’re also very affordable. An asphalt roofing installation generally costs less than one made of other materials like metal, slate, wood, or clay tiles.
Ease of Installation
Many other roofing materials require home improvement experts to be specially trained and experienced in their installation procedures. Asphalt shingles, however, are simple to install and can be done by any licensed roofing contractor. They’re also lightweight enough to not require additional structural support, making the overall installation cost much less than other options.
Asphalt shingles are made with slate, stone, or ceramic granules, which helps strengthen them. They also help reflect UV rays, which protects them from premature deterioration and also helps keep your home cool in the summer. They’re also fire resistant and resistant to wind damage and hail damage. By choosing asphalt shingles, you can be confident that your roofing installation will last for years to come.
