Asphalt shingles, also known as composite shingles, are the most popular type of roofing material used in American homes. In fact, eight out of ten homes in the US have asphalt shingle roofs. How did such a simple roofing material beat more “classic” roofing materials such as brick and slate tile in terms of popularity? A closer look at the material’s strengths gives us the answer to that question.
Availability – Asphalt shingles are more affordable compared to other roofing materials. They are also the most easily produced, so running out of stock is rarely, if ever, a problem.
Energy Efficiency – Asphalt shingles offer good heat resistance, making it easier for your appliances to regulate indoor air temperature, and, in turn, lower a home’s overall energy consumption.
Versatility – Asphalt shingles are available in different colors and sizes, making them a viable option for almost any well-known home design.
Ease of Installation – Since asphalt shingles are lightweight and simple, a professional roofing company like us can install them quickly and easily. Furthermore, replacing asphalt shingles is a lot easier than replacing high-end roofing materials.
Nature-Friendly – Although asphalt shingles are non-biodegradable, they can easily be broken down and recycled into paving material after being torn off a house, reducing their environmental impact by minimizing landfill waste.
