Are Asphalt Shingles the Best Choice for Your Roof

You have options for your roofing material

When it comes time to replace your old roof or put a roof on a new construction home, most homeowners enjoy that they have multiple options when it comes to roofing material. While asphalt shingles are one of the most common roofing materials used, homeowners can choose between metal, tile, wood, slate, and even rubber. Here at Stay Dry Roofing, we specialize in metal, flat, and asphalt shingles for Tampa, FL homeowners. One of our most popular choices is the GAF shingles system for many reasons. 

Why homeowners choose asphalt shingles

  1. The GAF roofing system

When choosing shingles, GAF offers the best quality in the industry. Not only are these shingles built to stand the test of time, but the manner in which they are installed is second to none. With GAF, the shingles are installed with your whole roof in mind, meaning every aspect is covered, from the roof deck to ridge vents. Because of this, we are able to offer most homeowners up to a 50 year warranty on their roof!

2. An adaptable solution

Shingles prove to be one of the most versatile roofing options because they can be shaped to fit your roof’s needs. They can cover all areas of your roof and be cut to size, folded, and adjusted to meet almost every need. If you have a roof with many different facets, angles, or vents, shingles might be an excellent solution.

3. High resistance to wind

This is an especially beneficial point for Floridians when hurricane season comes around. Shingles are highly wind resistant and homeowners won’t have to worry about them getting blown off or lifted. This gives peace of mind during these stressful hurricanes, where you can put your effort and worry elsewhere. 

4.Colors to suit your style

While not a functional benefit, homeowners can often select from a wide range of color options to give their roof and home the curb appeal it deserves! Whether you are looking for green, red, brown, grey or something else, those are options that you can choose with a shingle roof!

5. Simple to repair

Roofing concerns can always be a hassle for homeowners, but with shingles, the repair work is often a breeze. Thanks to how small and easy to apply they are, our team of roofing contractors can fix broken shingles or replace missing shingles quickly and affordably!

6. Works well with roofing features

Because of how easy to install and versatile asphalt shingles are, they work well with your roofing features like a chimney or skylight. While other materials like tile or metal can’t easily incorporate these features, shingles are able to be adjusted around the feature and keep your home safe at the same time. 

7.Better for the environment

Much like metal roofs, shingles are recyclable. While this doesn’t impact your home at all, it means that you are doing your part for the environment while getting a strong, reliable roof at the same time. When it comes time to replace your shingles or repair broken ones, what we take off will not take up space in a landfill.
