Asphalt Shingles: The Best Way To Protect Your Home From The Elements

When it comes to roofing materials, residents of Florida have a lot of options. However, choosing the right material can be difficult because of the benefits and drawbacks associated with each option. However, Asphalt shingles remain our top recommendation because they are durable and have an appealing look.

Asphalt shingles are North America's most popular roofing material and remain the first choice among homeowners. They have been used for over 100 years and are quite durable.

Asphalt shingles are made from either fiberglass or cellulose mat reinforced with asphalt and mineral granules. They are available in many colors and styles, so you can choose the one that best fits your home's style and aesthetic.

Asphalt shingles are easy to install and maintain. They can last up to 30 years with proper care, but if they begin to show signs of wear or tear, they can be replaced without having to replace any other parts of your roof system.

Types Of Asphalt Shingles For Tampa Residents

Asphalt shingles are popular due to their low cost, ease of installation, and durability. However, they come in several varieties depending on where you live and what kind of aesthetics and durability you want.
Three-Tab Asphalt Shingles
The three-tab shingle is the most basic of asphalt shingles and was the original type of shingle used when asphalt shingles were first introduced.  It has a very flat appearance that typically offers a slate-like look.
Architectural Asphalt Shingles
Architectural shingles also called dimensional or laminate shingles, are the most popular asphalt shingles. They have two or more layers of asphalt that are fused together for a thicker appearance.
Premium-Grade Shingles
Luxury shingles are the highest quality laminated shingles available. They offer a differentiated appearance, functionality, or coloration that outclasses dimensional shingles. Luxury shingles are captivating to look at and provide superior protection for weathering.

Keep Your Asphalt Shingle Roofs Looking their Best All Year Long

  • Asphalt shingles are affordable, lightweight, and easy to install. They are also versatile enough to be used on almost any home.

  • Shingles come with a wide range of warranties, some lasting only 20 years while lifetime warranties are also available. Be sure to ask your roofing contractor about manufacturers' warranties.

  • Florida's hot summers and rainy seasons can take their toll on many things, including your roofing material. Asphalt, however, is a sturdy material that can withstand these harsh conditions.

  • Asphalt shingles are easy to maintain and clean, however, it is best to hire a professional to clean the roof since water can damage the material.

  • If your roof is covered with moss, algae, or black algae, a bleach solution can be applied over the area to remove it.

  • Asphalt shingles are among the easiest to repair when they are damaged, so if you ever need your asphalt to be repaired, give our contractor a call.
