In this article, you will learn more about the benefits and flaws of asphalt shingles to help you make an informed decision as to whether or not asphalt shingles are the best choice for you and your family.


When compared with other roof repair and replacement materials, asphalt shingles are, by far, the most affordable. For this reason, they are also a favorite choice among homeowners and roofing specialists. As a homeowner, for a relatively low upfront cost, you get supreme protection and, thus, peace of mind that your house is well protected against various types of weather. Remember that your roof’s most important job is to protect you, your family, and your home from being damaged by storms, hail, hurricanes, and other types of extreme weather.


Asphalt shingles now come in such varied styles and designs that you are sure to find a style, color, and design that compliment your home. You can choose from an abundance of styles and designs including regular and designer asphalt shingles, some of which effectively reproduce the look of cedar shakes or tile. Asphalt shingles also come in a rainbow of colors which will surely assist you in putting together your roofing system. You can even further increase your home’s curb appeal by working with a technician and creating a custom look.


Asphalt shingles require no specialized processes or tools in order to install them on your home. Thus, the installation cost is significantly lower than for other types of roofing materials. For instance, standing seam, slate, and tile roofing all require special installation processes and tools. And bestof all, installation of asphalt shingles only takes 1-2 days for an average size roof.
Bear in mind that affordability should not be the only standard by which you determine the most suitable roof for your home. Reputable Roof repair and replacement professionals advise homeowners to spend time to research the material you are buying and the roofing contractor you are working with. The costs of a certain roofing material should not be used to measure its quality.


More and more homeowners are going “green” than ever. Asphalt shingles can be recycled into new roads or other asphalt materials, however they do require special recycling processes. If you plan to recycle your asphalt shingles, you will have to work with a certified environment-friendly roofing company like Beemer Kanga Roof®. Our company recycles all asphalt shingles that are ready for disposal.

Tips on Roof Maintenance and Upkeep Thu, 11 Jun 2015 06:07:50 +0000 Many homeowners ignore their roof as long as there is no visible problem. Unfortunately, when it concerns your roof, an ounce of prevention could be worth thousands of dollars. Even the smallest leak, if ignored, can become a big leak with water damage leading from your roof to the inside of your home. At that point, what might have required a simple repair could require expensive repairs or even a completely new roof. It is important to keep your roof protected so that it, in turn, can protect your home and your family.

Weather – Your Roof’s Biggest Enemy

Your roof’s biggest enemy is weather, such as heavy wind, rain, snow, extremes of heat or cold, nearby growth of trees or vines, and extreme storms such as tornadoes and hurricanes. Improperly installed roofs can be their own worst enemy in cases where the ventilation and insulation are lacking in the roof system. Have a roof maintenance professional inspect the attic area for proper ventilation and insulation.

What You Can Do for Roof Maintenance

There are things you can do yourself to protect your roof. Thoroughly check your downspouts for blockages or rust. Check gutters and keep them cleaned out or install gutter guards for easier upkeep. Keep the roof free of debris such as leaves or twigs, and encroaching vines (ivy, kudzu.) Prune overhanging tree branches that are close enough to cause friction against your roof. Check metal areas for rust. Check for missing, damaged, or misaligned shingles.

Of course, you can call a reputable roofing company such as BeemerKangaRoof® to handle this taxing work for you, especially if you are unable to or are not comfortable climbing a ladder.

If You Suspect Roof Damage

Sometimes, no matter how diligent a homeowner may be about roof upkeep, your roof may sustain damage from hail, or other objects striking, blowing on, or rubbing against the roof. If you suspect damage, don’t wait to have a qualified roofing professional inspect your roof system.

Once a Year Roof Inspection…a Minimum!

And, at some point, when your roof reaches 20 years old or so, it will need replacing. Diligent upkeep and timely calls for professional service can extend the life of any roof and may save you from having to replace your roof sooner than expected. Bob Silva, of This Old House, has said, “…younger roofs can fail too, so it’s a good idea to inspect a roof at least once a year.”
