Why Asphalt Roofing
While asphalt roofing may not have the longest expected lifespan among roofing materials, it remains the most popular choice. Typically designed to last 20-30 years, many homeowners are comfortable with the longevity compared to the price. They could splurge on other materials that may last 50 years, but today, many people don't expect to stay in the same home for that long.
The affordability of the product continues long after new roof installation. In the event that it is damaged, repairs are typically fast and reasonably priced. When severe weather strikes and you have a leaking topside surface, fast repairs can save you a lot of money on interior damages.
Every product you install on your home has vulnerabilities. When severe weather strikes, it can take a toll on asphalt roofing. Because of the way shingles are installed in an overlapped pattern, high winds can slip underneath the edge and peel them back, row by row. This peeling effect not only results in the loss of the shingles, it can also cause a great deal of damage to the underlayment and wood decking. The nails used to secure materials may come up during peeling and tear the underlayment, leaving your home exposed to water damage.
Hail and trees can beat down on asphalt roofing and scrape away protective mineral granules. This process, called degranulation, allows the sun’s powerful UV rays to pound against the bare surface. Over time, this can make the shingles brittle and weak.
Older asphalt roofing may not be a viable candidate for repairs. If there is damage to over 25 percent of the surface, it will often be more affordable in the long run to simply replace the rooftop.
