4 Benefits of Asphalt Roofing for Homeowners, Stamford, Connecticut

Whether you’re installing a new roof or roof replacement, asphalt shingles should be at the top of your list. As the most popular roofing material in America, most homes feature asphalt roofs, and for a good reason. Consider these benefits of using asphalt shingles for your home. 

4 Reasons to Install an Asphalt Roof

1. Cost

Asphalt shingles are inexpensive and long-lasting, making them a cost-effective choice all around. With low upfront costs, they’re easy to install and repair, which keeps labor expenses low. ENERGY STAR®-approved reflective shingles are also available in asphalt, and these cool roofs can reduce utility bills during summer months by reducing the need for air conditioning. 

2. Versatility

3. Weather Resistance

A new roof made of asphalt shingles can withstand heavy winds, rain, snow, and ice, and it will have the highest fire-resistance rating. Modified asphalt shingles can withstand hail and wind better than traditional shingles because they bend, which is thanks to the material's rubber-like composition.  

4. Recyclability

Asphalt is an organic material that can be sometimes be overlaid with new shingles at the end of their life to add support to a roof. Additionally, some companies specialize in recycling asphalt, and your roofer will know how to dispose of the material for the benefit of the environment.
