The Importance of Color for Conventional Asphalt Roofing

Curb appeal is a major aspect of increasing a home’s aesthetic. Conventional asphalt roofing can boost curb appeal, too. As long as you have the right color, you can stand out amongst your neighbors. Not only are conventional asphalt roofs gorgeous, they are also an inexpensive yet dependable option.

So to go along with this, homeowners want to be sure they’re getting the best roofing they can. Most homeowners will only want to make this decision once. Either that or they can only afford to make the choice once. So all things being equal, here are some other benefits to consider.

Some Other Benefits to Consider

A fundamental component of any asphalt shingle is known as the granule. Granules grant shingles these perks and improvements:

  • Ultraviolet Shielding: As the summer rolls on, heat and sunlight will only grow more intense. Granules improve the ultraviolet shielding of asphalt roof shingles, to reflect more sunlight than they absorb.
  • Long-Lasting: Conventional asphalt shingles and roofing will last you for years.
  • Resilience: Whatever weather blows in on the summer wind, your new roofing can survive it.

Best Ways to Choose a Color

  • Ask for options that are being offered.
  • Check directly with manufacturers.
  • Test out possible choices with design tools you can find online.

Types of Conventional Asphalt Roofing Shingles You Can Choose

Remember, the actual type of asphalt shingle will be determined by what you need them for. We offer shingles from manufacturers such as TAMKO, CertainTeed, GAF, and IKO.  But maybe you’re looking at architectural and 3-tab shingles. You might also be wondering what the difference is: quite simply, architectural shingles are laminated shingles in various sizes and shapes. They’re heavier, so they’ll have longer warranties available.
