Hiring skilled and experienced roofers to upgrade your roof is often at the top of home improvement wishlists of many homeowners, and for good reason. Your roof is your first line of defense against the elements, and your protection is only as good as the quality of your asphalt shingles.
Choosing which shingles to go with your roof replacement can be challenging. There are so many good products available today that it can be difficult to make a decision. Luckily, our expert roofing specialists at DryTech Roofing LLC suggest looking at the following qualities to determine which asphalt shingle roofing product is the best for your needs:
High Strength and Durability
Maryland weather can sometimes be unforgiving so many roofers recommend looking at weather resistance first to narrow down your list of shingle candidates. Look for products that have high strength and longevity numbers and have been proven to withstand harsh winter snow and harsher summer suns. Don’t hesitate to ask your roofing contractor for recommendations about which shingles possess high durability ratings.
The cost of roof replacement projects are dependent on how difficult certain asphalt shingles are to install. Lightweight shingles won’t set you back much in terms of labor, but they might not offer the best durability. On the other hand, heavy shingles can withstand almost anything but they can also be harder to install. The key is finding a balance between these two qualities and your roofing contractor can help you get there.
Exceptional Design and Appeal
Once you’ve chosen shingles that will not need constant roof repair, it’s time to choose a product that would actually look good on your home. Your roof makes up for more than 40% of your exterior appeal, so it’s important to find colors and patterns that go well with the rest of your home. To make the selection process easier for you, go for asphalt shingles that are available in a range of colors and profiles.
