PROS of Shingled Roofing

There are many benefits to having a shingle roof that you should take into consideration when searching for a roofing material for your new roof. For instance, shingles are easy to install and can be treated to be resistant to both mold and mildew. While fiberglass shingles are better fire protectant for your home, the organic variety offer a more water tight seal.

Shingle roofing is also an excellent economic alternative to the other options that you can find on the market today such as tiles or metal roofs. You will also find that while shingles are lower maintenance than other roofing materials, they also possess a much larger life span than their counterparts. Although these roofing materials can last as long as 15 to 30 years, they are easily repairable when damaged and are easy to use when needed for various applications.

CONS of Shingled Roofing

While shingles are fairly resistant, sudden changes in the weather can encourage quicker decay in your roof and the materials used to construct it. The time of the year should also be taken into great thought as shingle roofs should not be worked on or replaced in extremely cold weather. Another life span reducer for shingles included ventilation issues within your attic which may rush the time it will take for them to begin decaying.

As many people who have shingles on their homes already know, shingles are susceptible to damage from high winds and heat which will shorten the life of your shingle roof. Shingle roofing also produces granual debris that can settle in your gutters. Finally, even though shingles are fairly low maintenance, they really should be checked frequently to ensure they remain in good condition at least every other spring.

In Conclusion

While there are plenty of positive and negatives about shingle roofing, the decision is still yours to make for what will go atop your own home. There are many different options available to you for roofing materials, and staying within a budget is a must. Finding the proper budget for your roofing project will be the first step in helping you to make your decision final as to what you will want to use for materials.

You will also want to look at the area in which you live to see what kind of weather your roof will have to endure and if there is any risk that your roof won’t last as long as it should due to the climate. For example, if you live someplace where it gets really hot all the time, you may not want a shingle roof. Or if you experience high speed winds for a good part of the year due to extreme weather conditions, you may want to look into a different roofing material.

WHAT THEY SAY

The metal roof that Mercer and Sons Roofing replaced my old raggedy shingles with looks absolutely amazing. These guys were WAY more affordable than the 3 other estimates I received from other locar roofers. Ronnie and his wife were very helpful during the entire process and I highly recommend using them for your next roofing project.
