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.

Pros of Asphalt Roofing

ECONOMICAL

Asphalt roofs are economical. Asphalt shingles cost a lot less than many others that are on the market. If you don't have unlimited funds, then getting an asphalt roof may be ideal.

ASSORTMENT OF STYLES

Asphalt roofs come in a broad assortment of lovely styles and colors. You can pick between fiberglass and organic options. You can even opt for architectural shingles. Architectural shingles frequently are equipped with 3D vibes that showcase many enticing patterns.

EASY TO INSTALL

Installing roofs that are made out of asphalt tends to be a pretty simple and rapid process. Asphalt roof installation projects often call for a maximum of two days. Capable professionals can sometimes install them within the spans of single days as well. If you don't want to have to bother with cumbersome and tiring installation projects, asphalt may be what the doctor ordered.

EASY TO REPLACE

Replacing asphalt shingles tends to be as simple as pie. People often make the decision to replace these shingles individually. That's because they don't have to go through all of the stresses of full roof replacement.

Cons of Asphalt Roofing

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.

It’s important to consult with a professional roofer to know whether an asphalt roof is right for your home and the area where you live. At Caliber Roofing we offer free roof inspections to help you make the right choice.
