What are some of the benefits of asphalt shingles?
Product Performance. Asphalt shingles perform well in extreme temperatures and in areas where wind, water, and ice are prevalent.
Affordability. The efficient, high-volume production and relatively low application cost of asphalt shingles provide consumers with an overall value that’s tough for other roofing materials to match, especially in terms of comparable life expectancy.
Low Maintenance. Asphalt shingles, when properly chosen and applied, require little or no regular upkeep, and are easily repaired if damaged.
Ease of Application. Asphalt shingles are considered to be the easiest of all standard roofing materials to apply. In addition, the flexibility and strength of asphalt shingles supports their application on a wide variety of roof designs.
Fire and Wind Resistance. Asphalt shingles are manufactured to resist external fire and flammability standards, and carry Class A, B or C fire ratings, with Class A providing the greatest fire resistance. These fire ratings are defined by nationally recognized standards and tested by independent testing agencies. In addition, many asphalt shingles carrying a “wind resistance” label indicate that they have been manufactured and tested to demonstrate acceptable resistance in high-wind locations."
RUBBER ROOFING: This particular type of roofing offers strength and durability, as well as flexibility. EPDM rubber roofing is the most popular choice for low-pitch and flat roofs. It provides durable protection against the elements. It is resistant to most extreme weather conditions and requires very little care and maintenance. Rubber roofing has high elasticity and tensile strength and is resistant to UV rays from the sun. It holds its flexibility at extremely low temperatures as well.
