Asphalt roofing is the most popular type of roofing in Iowa, Nebraska, and South Dakota as well as other areas across the United States. We carry Certainteed, Atlas, and Owen’s Corning roofing. One major benefit of asphalt roofing is low maintenance. Who wants to spend more time maintaining the exterior of your home than spending time with family and friends? Other types of shingles require much more maintenance over time, while asphalt shingles continue to look great over time, and are easily repaired if damaged due to harsh weather.
Other benefits of asphalt roofing are quick installation, variety of types and colors of shingles, cost, and weight. Asphalt roofing shingles are very lightweight and won’t cause stress on the structure of your home. The cost of asphalt shingles is probably the largest benefit consumers consider. Due to the extreme benefits of asphalt shingle roofing, it becomes one of the less expensive options for roofing on the market.
The longevity of Asphalt roofing depends on a number of factors, including the quality of the materials used, the climate, and the severity of weather conditions. In general, however, an asphalt roof can last anywhere from 20 to 30 years. With proper maintenance, it is not uncommon for an asphalt roof to last even longer. For example, regular cleaning and inspections can help to extend the life of an asphalt roof by preventing damage from debris and exposure to sunlight. In addition, repairs should be made as soon as any problems are detected. By taking good care of an asphalt roof, homeowners can enjoy many years of trouble-free use.
