Shingle roofing is an attractive, cost-effective roofing option that many homeowners in the United States utilize. Because they are long-lasting and a single roof can last for up to 20 years, they are the most popular roofing option. It is also quick to install, ranging from one day to only a few, and there are many different types of shingles, from asphalt to architectural shingles. There are many benefits to shingle roofing including:
Ease of Installation: Shingles are easy to install and take less time than some other roofing options. In anywhere from a day to several days, you can have an entirely new roof on your home depending on the size of your home, the condition of the underlying structure, and the weather. Additionally, any repairs your roof might need will be completed easily.
Affordability: Shingles are one of the most affordable roofing materials available, with a life of up to 20 years. This makes shingle roofing worth the investment, especially if you are in a home you do not plan on living in for the long haul.
Safety: Many shingles have Class A fire protection and are fire resistant, which would give you and your loved ones additional time to leave the home in the event of a fire.
Versatility: Shingles are easily installed and typically do not need any specialized accessories. If your home has skylights, steep slopes, and chimneys, shingles are a great option.
Variety: Especially for being so affordable, shingle roofing comes in so many different styles, materials, colors, and more. There is almost certainly a look that will work for your home and your budget.
