Making decisions about roofing systems can be incredibly stressful for anyone. That’s because roofing material choices abound in this day and age. People can pick between tile, wood, slate and asphalt roofs galore. If you want to make an informed roofing material choice that makes sense for your budget, lifestyle and preferences, then you should study up on asphalt and all that it has to offer. Don’t ignore where the material falls short, either.
Asphalt roofs are in some situations vulnerable to splitting and cracking due to the fact they are lightweight. Cheaply made asphalt shingles are prone to splitting any time they have to tolerate significant temperature swings. Shocking temperature swings can force shingles to get a lot bigger. This can lead to the development of cracks. Note, too, that aggressive heat can trigger the splitting of asphalt shingles.
If you want to find a roofing system material that’s known for pure longevity, asphalt probably isn’t your greatest bet. Asphalt shingles, in many cases, are more susceptible to weather damage. If you install an asphalt roof, you may have to replace it relatively swiftly. Professional installation, and choosing the right type of asphalt shingles, however, can extend the life of an asphalt roof considerably.
