Asphalt is one of the most liked roofing materials which surpasses tiles, slates, metal, or even wood as the preferred choice for roofing. But have you ever wondered why asphalt roofing is so popular? The answer lies in its many qualities. Let us take you through them. Easy on the pocket: Asphalt shingles are inexpensive. Infact, they are one of the most affordable roofing choices available to you. The cost is less compared to other roofing materials, but where asphalt shingles stand out is their quality and durability. Add to that the ease of installation and maintenance and we know why asphalt is a clear winner. Light in weight: Another major plus about asphalt shingles is their lightweightedness. Being lightweight they outshine heavier shingles such as slate which can cause the roof to weigh a lot more, hence often requiring additional support for the structure. This in turn adds to the cost of the roofing and of course it takes more time to install it. Easy breezy installation: As stated above, asphalt shingles are easier to install and relatively quick too. At times it requires only a day to install asphalt shingles. So if you are dreading living in a construction site for long, fear not, go for asphalt! Once your asphalt roofing is up and running, you can resume your daily life soon. Dynamic in nature: Asphalt shingles are also dynamic in nature; they are available in a wide variety of colours and textures. With a large range of material at your disposal you can easily pick what you dreamt of for the roofing of your home. Durability: Asphalt shingles give your roofing an edge with their durability. Unlike other kinds of roofing material, asphalt does not require maintenance. They are also capable of withstanding weather extremities such as fire, ice, wind etc. They are extra strong and resistant to wind due to the use of double-layer fiberglass mat.
