Summer can be really hard on your home, between the blistering heat and sunshine that bleaches paint and overtaxes your HVAC, to the occasional summer storms (or even hurricanes and tornados) that bring down branches and sometimes whole trees. It’s no wonder that the late summer and early fall is a busy time for roof repairs after all that. This time of year is perfect for completing roofing maintenance, repairs, and replacements. If you’re in the market for a new roof, you should consider the many benefits of opting for shingles. Read on to learn more.
It’s A Common Choice
In most cases, homeowners look for ways to help their homes stick out from the crowd, but there is sometimes a lot of benefit in choosing a popular item. To start, it will be far easier to find a general contractor who is familiar with shingles than to try and find a specialist for your super unique roofing choice. The same goes for arranging maintenance and repairs over the life of your roof. Also, if you want your home to stand out in a good way, the roof probably isn’t a good choice. You’d end up spending a lot of money on something that most people won’t notice anyway.
Simple To Install Or Repair
In addition to having an easier time finding a contractor, shingles are also easier than any other roofing material to DIY. Whether you do it yourself or contract with a professional, you’ll be pleased by how quick and easy it is to install roofing shingles. Shingle roofs are also easier to repair than other roofing materials. If you ever need to do a small repair, the shingle roof makes it easy. Finally, shingle roofs are easy to clean and maintain. It’s a win-win-win.
Asphalt shingles are the most cost effective roofing solution as well. The price tag for a shingle roof is considerably less for both materials and labor than other roofing options. Even within the category of shingle roofing, there are different grades and styles, so you can find what works best for your home and budget. Shingle roofing is by and large the best bet for any budget.
