The Pros and Cons of Asphalt Shingle Roofing

When making your decision about the type of roofing you prefer , there will always be trade-offs. It’s best to know what to expect. We will work with you to ensure that every concern is addressed so that you choose the shingle that is best for your project.

Pros of Asphalt Shingles

Affordability:

Asphalt is the go-to answer for homeowners on a budget. With proper roof installation and maintenance , a quality roof doesn’t have to break the bank, especially with our financing options.

Color Variety:

From neutrals to statement colors, there are a variety of options to choose from. Based on your budget, you can even choose asphalt shingle roofing that emulates wood or slate.

Simple Installation:

Asphalt shingle roof repair is simple and the most cost-effective compared to other roofing materials. Should the job require it, new shingles can be installed on top of existing shingles with little difficulty. Additionally, asphalt shingles last up to 20 years with proper maintenance.

Cons of Asphalt Shingles

Not Environmentally Friendly:

Asphalt shingles are non-recyclable due largely to the harmful emissions they release. As the shortest roof lifespan, asphalt shingles contribute more waste when removed from a roof compared to other roofing materials.

Susceptible to Weather:

Wide-ranging temperatures and extreme weather conditions can cause cracks and warping of some asphalt shingle types.

Shingle Roof FAQs

Some common signs of roof damage that indicate that your commercial roof needs a replacement vs. a repair can include roof leaks, blistering that appears on the roof, and the roof's age. Storms and strong winds can lead to roof membrane uplift. Other signs of damage can include flashing wear and tear and failed downspouts.

 

Water leaks often go unseen, especially in buildings with concealed roof undersides. Looking for secondary signs that you could need a roof replacement, like mold or ceiling water spots, is also crucial.

 

Minor issues can be resolved with commercial roof repair to prevent worsening damage. However, with more significant problems, a commercial roof replacement becomes necessary.

 

Detecting problems early can determine whether you'll need a roof repair or a complete roof replacement.

A roof inspection is beneficial in choosing the best approach for your commercial roof repair or replacement. Our experts can help you determine if a recovery and re-roof is acceptable or if the existing roof should be torn off before the replacement.

The lifespan of a commercial roofing system can vary widely depending on several factors, including the type of roofing material used, the quality of the installation, climate conditions, and maintenance.

 

Built-up roofing systems, which typically consist of multiple layers of asphalt and roofing felt, can last 20 to 30 years or more with proper maintenance. Single-ply membrane roofing materials like TPO (thermoplastic olefin), EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), and PVC (polyvinyl chloride) can have a lifespan of 20 to 30 years or more. Additionally, metal roofing systems can last 30 to 50 years or more. Modified bitumen roofing systems typically last between 20 and 30 years.

 

To maximize the lifespan of commercial roofing systems, invest in professional installation, conduct routine inspections, address issues promptly, and perform recommended preventative maintenance.

Scheduling a roof inspection for your commercial roof is crucial to ensure its longevity and prevent potential issues. We recommend scheduling inspections for commercial roofing systems annually, at a minimum.

 

It's also crucial to have your building's roof inspected after severe storms, before and after winter, before significant roofing work, and if you notice any signs of damage, like roof leaks, clogged downspouts, or holes.

The cost of a new commercial roof can vary significantly based on several factors, including the roof's size and complexity, the type of roofing materials chosen for the roof replacement, the type of warranties your contractor offers, and the elements involved in the commercial roofing system. Ease of access to the roof can also impact the price of a roof replacement.
