The Benefits Of Shingle Roofs And Why They're Worth Considering

When people come to your home, your roof is one of the first things people see. It’s also your home’s first line of defense against the elements. As a result, the choice of roofing material isn’t something you should take lightly. As you go through the different residential roofing options, asphalt shingles come up multiple times. They are the most common roofing material and for good reason. Here are a few benefits of shingle roofs and why they’re worth considering. 


The biggest benefits of shingle roofs is the cost. They are most affordable to install, maintain and repair. On average, a new shingle roof costs between $1.50 and $5.50 per square foot. The price difference is vast, but that’s because shingles present a broad range of options to suit varying needs and budgets. 

The cost-to-performance ratio of shingles is one of the best. With shingles, you get high performance without breaking the bank. So, if you’re looking for weather, fire, and wind resistance, shingles provide those benefits without incurring too much extra cost. 

Shingles are not only cost-effective upfront, but they also last long enough to provide even more value over the long term. It’s a benefit that other roofing materials just don’t measure up to. 

Energy Efficiency 

The cost-effective benefits of shingles go beyond the upfront and long-term costs. When installing shingles, our team installs all the essential roofing layers, making your home more energy efficient. 

You can choose shingles designed in light, medium, and dark tones. The ideal option depends on your locality and roofing needs. The shingles reflect more infrared radiation and reduce the temperature on the roof’s surface. It seems like a small difference, but it can greatly impact your energy bills. 


Most asphalt shingles can stand up to what the Massachusetts and New Hampshire weather throws at them. You can tell how well shingles can withstand things like hailstorms by their impact ratings. Also, you can choose shingles designed specifically for your needs if you need something a bit stronger.

Some shingles come with fire and weather resistance. They’re also rust and algae resistance. Shingles have all the qualities you want in a long-lasting and efficient roofing material.  And you won’t have difficulty knowing when it’s time to call a roofer to repair the shingles.

Benefits Of Shingle Roofing Compared With Other Roofing Materials? 

Shingles offer the best of both worlds. While metal roofing is longer lasting and keeps your home cool, it costs more to buy the materials. Shingles balance all the qualities of good roofing materials and maintain a lean bottom line.
