Top 5 advantages of asphalt shingle roofing
We at AP Toiture Et Fils, Inc. would like to let you know about the many advantages of roof shingles for homes in the Montreal and West Island areas. Investing in a new roof is big decision. That’s why it’s best to have all the facts before committing to a renovation. Here are just five of the top advantages that asphalt shingle roofing has to offer:
1. It’s a sustainable product
To be a responsible consumer, it’s important to know when we’re purchasing environmentally friendly products. Luckily, recycling asphalt shingles is more cost-effective than ever. When your roof reaches the end of its life, it could easily become a road somewhere rather than ending up in a landfill.
2. It comes in many varieties
Asphalt shingles are divided into two main categories of construction (organic and architectural), and both of these categories come in a variety of colours and styles. Which category of shingle you like will depend on your budget and personal style. No matter which you choose, however, there are so many varieties that there’s sure to be a shingle that’s perfect for your home.
3. It’s durable
Renovating your roof is an important investment. When you re-shingle your roof, you want to be sure you’ll get your money’s worth. Asphalt shingles can last twenty years or more with proper installation and maintenance.
4. Shingles are easy to install
Exactly how easy a re-shingling is will depend slightly on the roof itself and a number of other factors. All things being equal, however, asphalt shingles are one of the easiest installations when it comes to roofing. Under good conditions a roof can be re-shingled in a single day. To install a metal roof can take up to five days and can cost up to 3 times more than shingles !
5. It’s one of the most affordable roofing options
Of course, the quality of a roof doesn’t matter much if it’s unaffordable. Asphalt shingles, however, are one of the least expensive roofing options on the market. Because they’re specially designed to be affordable, durable, and aesthetically pleasing, they’re a great option for every homeowner.
