The Best Shingles You’ll Find
Roofing materials come in a variety of forms, depending on the needs of the house and its surroundings. Far and away, the roof of choice in most American homes are asphalt shingles. Their popularity means a wide variety of options for you to choose from, with Energy Roofing Companies always happy to help you out.
Asphalt shingles are made up of panels laid out over the roof. The panels are either made from either organic material like wood, plant fiber, or other similar materials; or fiberglass. They are then coated in asphalt to help them protect against water damage.
The fiber core of organic shingles makes them more resistant to breaking off during cold weather, while allowing them to expand during hot days. However, this also means that they catch fire more easily, and are likely to suffer fire damage.
Fiberglass shingles, on the other hand, are much more fire-resistant. In fact, they were made to replace the more dangerous asbestos-laced shingles in earlier versions of organic shingles. But compared to organic shingles, asphalt is heavier and will need stronger support.

Why Choose Asphalt?
There are several reasons why asphalt is so popular in the country. Most of these reasons stem from how well-suited they are for the prevailing weather conditions in the United States, as well as the availability of their materials.
Asphalt shingles are easy to install, repair, and remove. Since they are made up of smaller components, only the damaged shingles will need to be removed and replaced, instead of the whole roof. This means buying less of the materials, less time to fix them, and less money to pay for all of them.
Asphalt roofs are quite durable. If installed properly they can last from 10 to as much as twenty years. Because out their coating, asphalt shingles are a good fire retardant. Their grainy outer texture also helps protect the home from harmful ultraviolet rays and helps keep the heat down.
Because of their price and variety, asphalt roofing is easy and affordable to replace. This will be great if you want to spruce up your house and give it a new look. There are, however, some disadvantages to having asphalt shingles as your roof.
Extreme climate and rapidly changing weather can do a lot of damage to asphalt. In extreme heat, they fade and fracture. Cold snaps also cause the same effect. And when the weather suddenly changes, the sudden expansion and shrink can cause the shingles to warp and bend, damaging them and allowing moisture to seep in. Strong winds can also lift the shingles off from the roof.
Their porous surface also lends asphalt roofs to moss and lichen growth, which can cause the wooden support for the roof to rot. But don’t worry. These flaws can be minimized by getting help from competent, dependable residential roofing service contractors, such as the Energy Roofing.
