As most homeowners know, you’ll need a roof replacement about every 25 years. Choosing which type of roofing material will be right for you and your home is a very big decision. It’s important that you take some time to consider the differences between each before committing to one. You should keep in mind significant factors such as cost, durability, safety, and energy efficiency. One of the most common types of material you’ll want to consider is asphalt shingle roofing. Here’s some information that may help you make a decision before hiring your roofing contractor.
Ease of Installation
Depending on your situation, the difficulty and length of time required to install your new roof may be an important factor in your decision. Luckily, asphalt shingle roofs are easy to install. An installation can take as little as 24 hours to complete.
There’s a reason so many homeowners choose asphalt shingle roofs. This type of roofing is extremely economical, especially compared to more expensive alternatives such as slate or metal. It’s also important to note that roof repairs on asphalt shingles are less expensive than repairs on other materials can be.
The typical lifespan for an asphalt shingle roof is approximately 25 years. If the roof is well maintained, however, it can last significantly beyond this timeframe. On the other hand, regular bad weather and poor maintenance can significantly shorten it.
While asphalt shingle roofs are generally quite durable, extreme bad weather can pose a problem. Cold, high winds, and hail can damage individual shingles badly enough to require replacement.
