Do you have asphalt shingles on your roof? If so, you are not alone. It is in fact one of the most common roofing materials you will find here in the US. Why is that?
It comes with a low price-tag, but at the same time, it is easy to install, fairly durable and has a decent life-span.
Of course, asphalt shingles aren’t the top of the line roofing material, but you will be hard pressed to find a better balance between price and function.
Asphalt shingles can be installed right on top of your old shingles, so you could save some money on installation. This doesn’t mean that they are difficult to remove, however, in fact, it is fairly easy to remove old shingles if you should want to.
You should be careful that the shingles don’t start growing mold or moss, since this can be damaging to them. Keep your roof dry, and clear off branches or leaves where water can collect.
