What Are the Longest Lasting Roof Shingles?
Did you know that there are an array of materials used in roofing shingles? Shingle roofs can be created using wood, metal, slate, clay, concrete, and more, though there are definite pros and cons for all of these options.
So which shingles last the longest? Slate shingles are considered durable, but they’re extremely heavy, and a roof’s support structure usually needs to be reinforced to be able to handle them. Additionally, the extremely high cost of slate shingles removes them from the conversation for the majority of homeowners. Cement, clay, wood shake, and metal shingles also offer excellent durability, but each comes with upkeep issues, and installation costs can also be prohibitive.
Asphalt Shingle Roofing
There’s a reason that asphalt shingle roofing products are the most popular option among homeowners. Technological advancements have come a long way in recent years, and now the longest-lasting asphalt roof shingles on the market can be expected to provide reliable protection for your home for decades.
