Choosing Asphalt Roofing

Most residential and commercial structures are always choosing asphalt roofing shingles as their roofing material. In fact, this is the most popular roofing material across the United States, and there are good reasons for that.


Below, Alpha Roofing will show you the asphalt roofing advantages and why to choose them for your property.

Advantages of Choosing Asphalt Roofing

The adaptability, affordability, and aesthetic of asphalt shingles attract property owners. In addition to being fire-resistant, asphalt roofs provide an extra layer of security for your home. 

Aside from that, asphalt shingles are more cost-effective than other materials. Likewise, manufacturers have recently performed changes to make them more wind resistant. Consequently, wind guarantees have increased from60 mph to 130 mph during the past few decades.

Also, asphalt roofs provide the following benefits:

The installation process is straightforward

Repairs are quick and simple

More possibilities for design and color

Efficiency in terms of price

Resistance to the wind and algae

Class A fire rating

High quality

The Cost of Asphalt Roofs

Installation of an asphalt shingle roof varies in cost according to several factors, such as pitch and overhangs. Besides, the roofing contractor must measure your roof precisely to provide you with an accurate estimate for your project. 

On the other hand, warmer climate homes need new roofs more frequently. 

Your new asphalt roof can last between 15 to 30 years, depending on how much you care about it. Having your asphalt roof examined after ten years of its installation is a good practice. So, you can make an appointment with us right away for a free inspection and quote.

Installing an Asphalt Shingle Roof

Our asphalt roofing systems use the 1 ¼ inch coil nails that the code requires. 

3-Tab shingles and architectural shingles are the two most common types of shingles. 3-Tab shingles are less expensive, but they are less attractive and last for shorter times. However, these shingles are a wonderful choice for someone selling or who does not intend to stay in their home for a long time.

To give architectural shingles a dimensional effect, they are spaced randomly. Also, their wind guarantees are superior and come in a wider variety of different colors. People planning to stay in their houses for many years should prefer this type of shingle. 

Additionally, make sure that the shingles you choose for your home match the rest of the area. To help you select the right shingle, go around your neighborhood, and see the shingle styles your neighbors are using.
