Asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing material because of their cost effectiveness and because they usually have a life span of 15 to 30 years.
When shopping for a new roof, look for a factory certified GAF Master Elite roofing contractor. GAF is North Americas largest manufacturer of roofing products. GAF offers peace of mind that your family will be protected. Certain GAF roofing systems come with a Lifetime limited warranty.
Never choose the cheapest asphalt shingle because you will be giving up on durability. Look for shingles that have a decent hail rating, a good indicator of impact resistance and overall durability. A quality roof is your home's first line of defense against damaging weather.
Hail rating is particularly an important factor in choosing asphalt shingles. Roofing material manufactures are not legally required to report their hail ratings, so beware if you don't see one.
Asphalt shingles offer versatility. They can be adapted to many different angles, shapes and forms to give you a custom roofing solution.
Asphalt shingles come in a wide variety of colors that will complement any home and offer a stunning curb appeal.
They are designed and manufactured to meet the most stringent wind resistance tests.
Asphalt shingles with a fiberglass mat achieve the highest fire rating. They offer sound protection against potential penetration and spread in case of a fire.
Asphalt shingles offer sound protection from external noise. They can greatly dampen and reduce these types of noises.
Proper installation is key to getting the most out of your asphalt shingle roof. Keep in mind an asphalt roof is only as good as its installer. Asphalt roofing is a complete waste of money if its poorly installed by an inexperienced crew.
Not only are asphalt shingles affordable, reliable and add beauty to your home,
they require less maintenance than other types of roofs. Repairs are relatively simple, but must be carried out to receive the maximum life span of your roof.
