Why Quality Shingles Matter
August 1st, 2021 | By Dale Chastain
A new roof can be the most expensive investment many homeowners make in their home. Since the need for a new roof can come before expected, you should prepare now to make a wise long-term decision when the time comes. Going for the budget-friendly shingle option can be tempting, especially if you are not financially prepared for a new roof. At Chastain Roofing, we want to guide you in your roofing selection process to ensure that you make the choice that is best for you.
- Quality Shingles Provide Better Fire Protection — Architectural shingles have a class A fire rating, which means that they will help limit the spread of a house fire to other parts of your home. Choosing high quality shingles is a simple step to prioritize your family’s safety in case of a fire.
- Quality Shingles Allow More Customization — Basic shingles come in fewer colors and finishes. You may be trading the cheaper upfront cost for your long-term happiness with the aesthetic of your home. All the colors and designs of architectural shingles come with mineral granules, a ceramic shield, and a sturdy fiberglass base for durability.
- Quality Shingles Last Longer — Architectural shingles have a longer lifespan than basic 3-tab asphalt shingles. They are built to stand up to rain, wind, snow, and heat. In addition to the benefits of a longer lifespan, architectural shingles typically have much better warranties on them. We can help you explore the warranty policy for the shingles you are interested in for your home.
- Quality Shingles Offer Improved Sound Reduction — When you are trying to sleep through a storm, every sound on the roof can keep you up. Because of the thick fiberglass base, architectural shingles provide sound reduction. Enjoy a quieter night when you have a quality roof.
