Benefits of Choosing Asphalt Shingles
Many people who choose asphalt shingles do so because they offer incredible value. They are among the most affordable of dependable roofing choices. In addition, Roof MD can often tweak the method of installation so that the homeowner can save even more. As long as the underlying structure is sound, it may be possible to layer your new roofing materials directly on top of the old ones. This is known as re-roofing, and it reduces labor costs because there is no need to tear off the old shingles. In addition to affordability, asphalt shingles offer the following benefits:
Weather-resistant: An asphalt shingle can be engineered to resist the effects of high wind gusts. They also withstand water well, protecting your home from the elements.
Fire-resistant: Although asphalt shingles aren’t quite as fire-resistant as metal roofs, they will withstand sparks well.
Longevity: A typical roof with asphalt shingles can last up to 20 years before it will require replacement!
Finally, shingles are a beautiful choice for a new roof. They are available in a surprisingly wide selection of color palettes, including shades of brown, red, green, gray, green, and blue.
Types of Shingles Our Roofers Install
The roofers at Roof MD all have years of experience installing all types of roofing materials on homes throughout Tennessee. The most popular choice is architectural, or dimensional, shingles. These are made by fusing together multiple layers of asphalt. This allows for a richer, multi-dimensional appearance that embraces variations of color shades.
Strip, or three-tab, shingles, are another option. These are made with a single layer of asphalt, giving them a solid look. They tend to cost less than architectural shingles. This makes them a good option for Roof MD customers who wish to stick to a lower budget.
