Things To Consider When Choosing Roof Shingles 

Important factors for homeowners to consider when choosing asphalt roofing shingles for their roofs include:

  1. Durability – how long do you want your asphalt roofing to last?
  2. Colour Choice
  3. Cost – what is your overall budget for the roofing project?
  4. Roof Design – is your roof slope steep or low?
  5. Wind Rate – is your home situated in a place that receives high wind?

With these questions in mind, you can use the comparison charts below to choose the brand of asphalt shingles that is suitable for your roof. It is important, however, to note that the quality of the roofing depends largely on the expertise of the installer. To make the matter worse, your warranty can be voided if the installation is not done according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
