These days there are a lot of ways to top out a building. In the past few decades, new roofing techniques and materials have come to market and today there is a lot of choice. However, despite this many roofers, in the USA, still recommend asphalt. There are several reasons for this and here are just a few of them.
Flexible Roofing Solutions
Asphalt is one of the most flexible roofing solutions out there. You can buy asphalt in large sheets and rolls, which is ideal for flat roofs. However, most homes are tiled with asphalt shingles, which look great. Thicker composite shingles are popular in parts of the US with extreme climates.
Easy To Maintain
Perhaps the best thing about asphalt is that it is super easy to maintain. Asphalt is amazingly durable, so you can go decades without any issues. However, when you do need to repair a leak all you need to do is to locate the area with the problem, remove the old asphalt and replace it with a new piece.
Value for Money
An asphalt roof is still one of the cheapest ways to finish off a roof. The fact it lasts and lasts means that it offers good value for money in both the short and the long-term.
