Asphalt Shingle Residential Roof Replacement

Asphalt shingle roofing replacements are the most common roof material selection when homeowners have their roof replaced because they are economical and work well on steep-sloped roofs. Some roofing contractors will recommend installing new shingles over the existing roof however that decreases the life expectancy of the new roof replacement.

If the asphalt shingle roof replacement is a quality roofing material and installed properly the roof should be leak proof and trouble free. Extreme weather conditions such as high winds can cause damage to the roof; also hail storms can cause roof damage and require roofing replacements before the normal life expectancy of the roofing materials have expired.

There is a very wide design and shingle color selection from asphalt shingles, which allows the homeowner to select a roofing material with a design and color that can greatly increase the value and enhance the appearance of a home. Some homeowners prefer metal roof rather then the asphalt shingle roof replacements, however metal roofing is much more expensive. Asphalt shingle roof replacements can range from a 15 year to a 50 year life expectancy depending on the quality of the roofing shingles installed.
