It's hard to beat the durability and affordability offered by asphalt shingle roofing. Why? Besides being budget-friendly, there are many other benefits asphalt shingles provide for you, homeowner. If you need to re-roof your older home or you are building a brand new house, shingled roofing brings a lot of benefits to the table.

Asphalt Shingles Cost Less

Asphalt shingles are manufactured to extremely high standards. They are almost always available for quick delivery. If you've gotten some roofing quotes, you will find out that roofing shingles are less expensive to install than other roofing options, such as metal roofing. They are easy to work with and can be installed in a few days for a low cost.

Roofing Shingles Look Great

If you love adding color to your home, asphalt roofing shingles offer lots of options. Manufactured by a wide variety of companies such as GAF and CertainTeed, they come in many colors and styles. Architectural shingles simulate the look of cedar shakes or natural slate tiles without the weight, maintenance, or flammability issues of those roofing materials. You won't have to reinforce your home's roofing structure for asphalt roofing shingles.

Low Roof Maintenance

These roofing shingles have a long life span and need minimal care in order to remain beautiful and protective. They are built and rated to withstand the harsh Florida coast weather homeowners can experience. They offer top fire ratings and resistance to heavy rain, hail damage, and mold. With little maintenance, such as removing debris from your roof, asphalt shingles require very little care from the homeowner.

More Benefits of Asphalt Shingles:

  • Asphalt shingles are a popular roofing material in Florida due to their many benefits, including:

  • Durability: Asphalt shingles are durable and can withstand high winds, heavy rain, and intense sunlight, which are all common weather conditions in Florida.

  • Easy Installation: Asphalt shingles are easy to install, which can save homeowners time and money on labor costs.

  • Aesthetic appeal: Asphalt shingles come in many colors and styles, allowing you to choose a look that complements your home's architecture.

  • Energy Efficiency: Some asphalt shingles are designed to reflect heat and UV rays, which can help reduce cooling costs in Florida's hot and humid climate.

  • Fire Resistance: Asphalt shingles are fire-resistant, which is especially important in Florida, where wildfires are a common occurrence during the dry season.
