Asphalt shingles are the most popular style of roofing material. These shingles are made by fitting fiberglass between asphalt and ceramic granules. Because they are lightweight, they are less expensive—both to purchase and install—making an asphalt shingle roof ideal for homeowners on a budget.
As with any roofing material, if you’re considering an asphalt shingle roof, review the pros and cons before making a choice.
Pros of asphalt shingles
- Can last 30+ years
- Work well with most home styles, especially those with steep-sloped roofs
- Low maintenance means inspections, maintenance and repair work is faster and easier
- Come in two styles:
- Architectural – layered shingles for a higher-end appearance
- Three-tab – flatter and thinner shingles
- Are eco-friendly—asphalt shingles can be recycled when it’s time to replace your roof and used as a by-product for paving
Cons of asphalt shingles
- Vulnerable to high winds
- Can be damaged by mildew in shady areas
- Appearance is less distinctive than architectural styles of roofing
- Not resistant to extreme temperature fluctuations
- Attic ventilation problems can potentially reduce the lifespan of an asphalt shingle roof
