Continue reading to discover the most important benefits of asphalt shingles.

1. Affordable

Asphalt shingles have the lowest production cost of the entire residential roofing industry.

Therefore, they are a cheaper option for homeowners than other roofing materials like slate, concrete, clay, or metal.

They offer excellent ROI and are easy to install.

However, the project cost will depend on the following factors:

  • Home location

  • Pitch slope

  • Roof size

  • Number of dormers

  • Asphalt shingle brand

2. Durable

In the past, an asphalt shingle roof could give you a lifespan of 20 years on average with proper maintenance.

Now, thanks to the latest technology advancements, GAF asphalt shingles can give you up to 30 years.

So if you are looking for a durable and cost-effective solution for your new home, GAF asphalt shingles remain a top choice.

3. Environmentally Friendly

Asphalt is one of the most recyclable roofing materials in the industry.

What makes asphalt superior to plastic is that, unlike plastic, asphalt does not degrade with repeated recycling procedures, and only a small fraction of discarded shingles will end up in landfills.

Did you know: The US transportation department uses pre and post-recycled asphalt shingles for roads!

4. Easy to Maintain

The maintenance plan for asphalt roof shingles is simple.

We will clean your roof surface twice a year by removing all the debris to prevent moisture issues.

Our asphalt shingles inspection will also include checking for missing nails, loose shingles, and worn flashings.

At Ramon Roofing, you can trust that we have the right experience to manage asphalt roof shingles repairs.

We can easily remove and replace damaged shingles without worrying you about further damage.
