Know The Benefits of Asphalt ShinglesWorrying about basic maintenance and updates on your roofing system can be stressful, but Elevated Roofing in Frisco, TX offers numerous eco-friendly, durable solutions that take the worry out and confidence in, your valuable investment.

Your roof encompasses a large portion of your home’s overall value and function, so maintaining its structure is essential. Finding the best option for your needs can be overwhelming, but we can help you find the best roofing materials for your budget, style, and home’s underlying needs.

One great option is the traditional asphalt shingles. 4 primary benefits of asphalt shingles are explained below:

Roofing Contractors Can Prolong Your Roof’s Lifespan with Asphalt Shingles

As a homeowner, you will most likely need to replace one or more shingles at some point. Asphalt shingles are a traditional option and will be an excellent investment for your home.

You may be surprised to learn that many manufacturers offer warranties between 15 and 50 years on asphalt shingles. This prolonged lifespan of asphalt shingles makes them a great choice and ensures that you are making a smart investment.

Asphalt Shingles Have Increased Durability

They are manufactured from fiberglass or an organic material consisting of recycled felt paper, asphalt, and an adhesive for an extra layer of protection. This construction ensures a strong layer of protection for your home’s shelter with an increased appeal due to the endless variety of colors and textures that are available. In addition, asphalt shingles reduce the possibility of leaks and expensive water damage.

Asphalt Shingles Are Energy Efficient

Half of your home’s total energy usage stems from heating and cooling your home. However, an estimated 25 percent of heat loss occurs through the roof. This not only wastes energy used to heat and cool your home, but it also increases your monthly energy bills.

Asphalt shingles act as a protective coating preventing heat loss, also reducing your home’s exposure to the harmful rays of the sun. They make your home easier and more affordable to heat in the winter and cool in the summer.

Asphalt Shingles Are Easy To Install And Maintain

Wood, tile, and metal shingles are heavier to carry, making them a great deal harder to install on sloped, pitched roofs. Since asphalt shingles are lighter and easier to transport, roofing contractors in the Frisco, TX area, and throughout the southwest, can easily install them on your home. This reduces time, accident risks, and labor costs.

Of course, maintenance is important to protect your investment. They don’t require special cleaning or care. In most cases, a simple pressure-washing each year will prevent heavy buildup and remove light dirt and debris on your roof. Always be careful with pressure washers, to avoid blowing protective granules off the shingles!

Your roof is important to your home’s value, appeal and your family’s shelter and shelter. Contact Elevated Roofing, a Frisco, TX based roofing contractor at 469-305-0010 for new asphalt shingles and other roofing needs.
