Asphalt shingles are still the most popular choice for roof coverings in America. The positive aspects of asphalt shingles include low installation and maintenance costs. Roofs made out of these shingles come in different grades. The better the grade, the longer the life expectancy, which can range from 15 to more than 30 years. The asphalt covering is actually a composite made up of either a fiberglass or rag mat with asphalt, which is covered with colored mineral granules. Multi-layered shingles give this otherwise thin material improved dimension making it resemble other, thicker materials. Asphalt shingles also come in a variety of colors and styles. Individual shingles may be replaced if damaged. An additional advantage of asphalt shingles is that in certain circumstances, they can be installed over an existing roof of asphalt shingles, eliminating the need to remove the old roof.
AJC Roofing uses GAF Shingles exclusively for their quality, durability and warranty.
Lightweight, durable and flexible in terms of look, metal is becoming a choice for those who are looking for a long service life. More expensive than most other materials (except for slate) metal comes in a wide range of shapes, styles and colors. It can imitate the look of tile, asphalt or slate, be colored in virtually any manner and is available in panels or shingles. Metal roofs often last for 40 years or more and most come with a lifetime warranty.
Wood Shingles & Shakes
Wood roofing, which comes in cedar, red wood and cypress, lasts longer and is more expensive than asphalt. It can last for up to thirty-five years. Many people enjoy it for the natural look it provides. Fire resistant shingles are pressure treated with preservatives are safest and last longest. With age, wood may become brittle or shrink, causing the roof covering to be compromised. Individual shingles may be replaced as needed.
Choosing which type of roof is right for you will depend upon numerous factors, including your budget, taste and needs. Take time to consider the right roofing material that will deliver what you want.
