One of the most commonly used roofing products on the market today, asphalt shingles are a popular choice among homeowners. The affordability, practicality and subtle beauty of asphalt make it an ideal solution for the vast majority of new construction roofs as well as replacements. If you are considering asphalt shingles, we encourage you to learn a little bit more about them before making your final decision.

Why are Asphalt Shingles Unique?

As the name suggests, these roofing shingles are made from asphalt. These relatively durable shingles can be applied in many different forms and shapes, making them an ideal solution for sloped roofs. All asphalt shingles are either fiberglass or organic. Organic shingles are made of paper and coated with asphalt to create a waterproof roofing system. Fiberglass shingles are also coated with resin to create a waterproofing barrier. Many homeowners opt for fiberglass because it provides superior fire protection.

Versatility

Available in a wide variety of colors and styles, there is an asphalt shingle to compliment virtually any home design. Whether you want a low-profile gray or a bold red roof, you will find an asphalt shingle to help you achieve the perfect look. Unlike tile or metals roofs, asphalt makes a subtle statement, allowing the architectural features of a home to take center stage.

Lifespan

The expected lifespan of an asphalt roof is 20 to 25 years. Depending on climate and wear and tear, your asphalt shingles may last longer or need to be replaced sooner than the 20-year mark. If you suspect that your aging asphalt roof needs to be replaced, watch for the following signs:

  • Missing shingles
  • Curling shingles
  • Loss of granules
  • Cracking shingles
  • Sagging roof
  • Leaking

Having a professional roof inspection is the best way to determine if your asphalt roof needs to be replaced. You may even find that a simple repair can add years of life to your existing roof. At Elite, we always like to remind property owners that climbing on roofs is risky business that should be left to the professionals. This is why we proudly offer free, no-obligation roof inspections. Leave the risky stuff to us!

Installation of Asphalt

Proper installation is essential to the longevity of an asphalt roof. If installed in extreme temperature or without proper technique, shingles can lift and even become detached well before the roof has reached its expected lifespan. This is why it’s important to work with an experienced roofing company. The ideal weather conditions for installing an asphalt roof is a clear day with temperatures between 45 and 50 degrees. This type of weather allows for optimal thermal seals, ensuring the longevity of your new roofing system.
