If you are installing a new roof or replacing an old one, you might be overwhelmed with all the material, color, and style options you have to choose from, and although there are many great choices, there is one option that stands out from the rest: shingles. Shingles are one of the most commonly used roofing materials in North America, and there are a few good reasons why. Here are the top benefits to shingle roofing.
- Versatility and Variety. Shingles can cover every odd angle of any roof, so this means there is almost no roof that shingles can’t be installed on. Shingles also come in a wide variety of styles and colors, making it easier to style them with the rest of your home. You can get creative and install shingles designed to look like slate or cedar shakes or you can go bold and install shingles that add a pop of color to your home. There are so many options available when you decide on shingle roofing.
- Easy to Install and Affordable. If you are needing your roof done as soon as possible, shingle roofing is the way to go. Shingles are easy to install, and it usually only take a few days to install them, which means you will have a successfully installed roof over your head in no time. They are also the most affordable option on the market right now, and because they are a high-quality roofing material, you are getting a higher performance roof at a lower cost.
- Low Maintenance and Long Lifespan. Shingles have good lifespans and can last as much as 10-20 years. However, the lifespan of your roof is determined by how well it is taken care of and the environment in which you live. Thankfully, shingles are pretty low maintenance, but they still need to be taken care of like any other roof. Doing it yourself or hiring a professional to come out and clean your shingles at least once a year will help extend the life of your roof.
