• Asphalt Roofing Repair & Installation

  • Asphalt roofs are one of the most common types of roof that you'll see, and they have many positive aspects which would explain their popularity. Until recently, asphalt roofs were used on just about every home or commercial building you'd come across. Today, they aren't quite as prevalent, but they are still by far the most common type of roofing material. What are the pros and cons of asphalt roofs?

    Pros

    • Asphalt shingles are the least expensive type of roof covering you can buy. If you are on a tight budget, or you plan to sell your house in the next few years, then having asphalt shingles put in makes a lot of sense.
    • Asphalt shingles are easy to install. Their ease of installation will save you money on labor when you hire a roofing company to replace your roof.
    • When asphalt shingles start to wear out you can often put another layer of fresh shingles on top of your existing shingles. This will give your roof the protection that it needs without forcing you to invest a lot of money in having your entire roof redone.
    • Asphalt shingles reflect UV radiation, which helps to protect your roof.
    • Asphalt shingles can last up to 20 years, so despite being relatively inexpensive, you will get a lot of use out of them.

    Cons

    • Asphalt roofs are vulnerable to excessive moisture and water trapped under your shingles can rot your roof and lead to mold.
    • The coating of asphalt shingles can come off when exposed to heavy storms, which will reduce the effectiveness of the shingles.
    • Asphalt roofs will usually last about 20 years. So, if you plan on living in your home longer than that you'll have to pay to have your roof redone multiple times.
    • Asphalt shingles can fracture and come loose, and if they do then water can get into your home.
