Benefits of Shingle Roofing
The number one benefit of shingle roofs is their affordability. Installation as well as repair are fairly inexpensive and in a pinch could even be completed by the homeowner himself. Additionally, shingles are lightweight, so you will not have to worry about your housing structure being able to support the shingle roof. Once you have chosen the right kind of shingle for you Phoenix home, you will love how they complement the look of your home through their unique variety and stylishness.
Asphalt shingle roofing is the most commonly used residential roofing material in the United States. Shingle roofing is available in a large variety of styles and colors, is relatively inexpensive, and roofing companies find it easy to install. Asphalt shingles also facilitate easy roof repair and maintenance.
Wood shingle roofing is a distinctive choice. Cedar is the preferred type of wood shingle due to its strength and insect resistance. Wood shingle roofing is an environmentally friendly choice since wood has twice the insulating effect of asphalt shingles and comes from a renewable resource.
However, wood shingles are not maintenance free. Every few years they must be treated with a fireproofing substance, and should also be oiled or they will become overly brittle from the Phoenix sun. Debris, Moss, and fungus should also be removed regularly.
Metal shingle roofing is among the more costly types, but they are virtually maintenance free and can last up to 50 years. They are invulnerable to fire, insects, and rotting. They are both attractive and environmentally sound.
Metal shingles do require some expertise to install, so it’s best to contact a Phoenix roofing company for installation or roof repair.
Slate is another costly choice, but many people feel the aesthetic appeal is worth it. Additionally it’s cost effective in the long run since it should last over 100 years.
Although the harsh Phoenix AZ sun cannot deteriorate slate shingles, they are vulnerable to breakage, and can only be installed by a Phoenix AZ roofing contractor that’s able to determine if your structure can withstand the weight of a slate roof.
Today there is an increasing variety of shingle material available. The expert Peoria roofers at Allstate Roofing can help you make the best choice for your home or business.[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
