Why Asphalt Roofing?


It can’t be denied that asphalt roofing has tremendous value. The relatively low price point of asphalt roofing is among the main reasons why it is such a favorable choice. There is also a variety of pricing options to choose from, effectively creating another reason why homeowners and contractors turn to asphalt roofing.


Fortunately, in the case of asphalt roofing, a lower price point doesn’t necessarily equate to lower quality. In fact, homeowners can enjoy an extensive life expectancy with their asphalt shingles, which have been proven to be resistant against leaking, fire, weather conditions, and other hazards. There is no doubt that asphalt roofing is a bang for your buck!


One of asphalt roofing’s most positive attributes is the fact that it is certainly eye-catching.  Homeowners will be pleased to know that there is a multitude of textures and colors that they can choose from – including styles that look reminiscent of slate, cedar, or wood, if you prefer. However you picture the outcome of your roofing project – it’s likely that asphalt roofing can bring your vision to life.


There’s a reason why asphalt roofing is heavily preferred by contractors – it’s convenient to install! In cases of roof repair, too, contractors have a significantly easier time replacing or repairing asphalt roofing.


By design, asphalt roofing is one of the most sustainable roofing materials out there. When replaced, asphalt shingles can be recycled. They are also repurposed for paving!
