According to Erie Insurance, 65% reported that roof repair following a major storm that causes weather damage isn't something they delay. Roof damage in our area isn't uncommon, and loose and cracked shingles are two common types of weather damage. Repairing this type of damage is straightforward, and often one of the reasons many homeowners choose asphalt shingles. Let's dive in a little deeper.

They're Durable

Our roofs are typically a part of the house we don't think about too much until there's a problem. They stand up to almost everything Mother Nature throws at them, and when damage does happen, it's easy to fix. If you have cracked shingles, or a few that are missing, you simply need to replace those shingles. It's a task that a professional roofer can tackle in no time. Asphalt shingles can last for decades when they're properly maintained, another plus for homeowners.

Installation Is Easy

Depending on the size and complexity of your home and roof, a professional installation can take as little as a day. Because of the simplicity of the installation, asphalt shingles are also an affordable option. There aren't any extra materials that have to be laid or specialized tools that have to be used. Your roofers simply have to lay the tiles correctly, and you'll have a new, long-lasting, and durable roof. Installation is often covered by manufacturers' warranties, making asphalt shingles an even more attractive option.

Many Colors and Styles Are Available

Our homes are likely the largest investment we'll make in our lives, and we want them to look good. If you opt for asphalt shingles for your home, you'll be spoiled for choice. This roofing material is available in a full range of different colors and styles. There are also shingles available that look a lot like clay, wood, and slate but at a much lower price point. A design consultant associated with your roofing company can provide the guidance necessary to narrow down the choices and help you find the color and style that are perfect for your house.

We're the professional roofing company to call if you have cracked shingles or other repair needs. We can also help you entirely replace your roof should it sustain significant enough damage in a big storm or other instance.
