Benefits of Asphalt Shingle Roofs

There are many factors that make asphalt shingles the most popular choice for home roofs. Here are some of its major benefits:

  • Affordability: An asphalt shingle roof is a fraction of the cost of most other roofing types. Even on the premium end, asphalt shingles will still give homeowners on a budget the best bang for their buck. With proper installation and regular maintenance, a quality roof doesn’t have to break the bank.
  • Color Variety: It comes in a wide variety of colors as well, ranging from neutrals like shades of grey and brown to more statement-making colors like blue and polychromatic hues. Depending on how much they’re willing to spend, homeowners have the choice of installing asphalt shingle roofing that perfectly emulates wood or slate.
  • Simple Installation: Both asphalt shingle roof installation and repairs are relatively simple since new shingles can be installed on top of existing ones, assuming that there aren’t more than two layers underneath already and that the roof deck is in decent condition.

Types of Asphalt Shingle Roofs

With the variety of options that asphalt shingle roofing provides, homeowners are able to achieve a unique look on the home without breaking the bank. These are the asphalt shingle types that roofing professionals like Elo Roofing can install in Jacksonville and Palm Coast homes:

Three-Tab Asphalt Shingles

These are the most common type of asphalt shingle roofing, classified by their cutouts which make them look like three separate pieces. They’re affordable, lightweight, easy to maintain, energy-efficient, and can last up to 20 years.

Architectural Asphalt Shingles

Laminated with an additional asphalt layer and bonded with asphalt sealant, architectural shingles have a more defined, structural look and are more durable and waterproof than three-tab asphalt shingles. They come in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes and can easily mimic the look of more premium roofing alternatives like cedar and slate.

Fiberglass Shingles

Made with a combination of woven fiberglass as the base, asphalt coating, and ceramic granules on top, these materials create a waterproof and UV-protectant shingle while also being extremely lightweight and thin due to its lower amounts of asphalt.

Organic Mat-Based Shingles

This kind of asphalt shingle roofing has a recycled felt paper layer for its base. They’ll be heavier, thicker, and slightly more expensive than fiberglass shingles but they’re also more rugged and flexible.
