“There’s a lot on my plate right now,” Angela explained. “I’ve got this home renovation project going on at the same time there have been changes in my workplace that demand a lot of my time and energy. I need to get the roof replaced on my Tewksbury home. So what’s the fastest way to get a good looking roof that won’t cost me a fortune?”
As Tewksbury roofing contractors, we know that asphalt shingles are the most appealing option to homeowners who are operating on a tight budget. They’re affordable and relatively long-lasting: high quality asphalt shingles can deliver 3 decades or more of reliable performance.
Understanding Asphalt Shingles
Asphalt shingles are available in a variety of colors, so you can choose the one that best suits the look of your home. The most common roofing shingle color choice in the Tewksbury, MA area is brown, followed by black, gray, green and blue. Asphalt shingles are also available in a variety of styles. 3-tab asphalt shingles are generally the most affordable, while dimensional shingles have a little extra visual appeal and a higher price tag. For a truly high end look, choose luxury asphalt shingles that mimic the look of slate roofing tiles or cedar shakes. Be aware that while these luxury shingles are pricey compared to other asphalt shingles, they are a durable, affordable alternative to their natural counterpart which means you get an upscale look at a fraction of the cost.
And best of all for the homeowner in a hurry, no matter what type of asphalt shingles you select, an asphalt shingle roof can be installed quickly. The fact that high quality asphalt shingles are readily available speeds the construction process, both for roof repairs, roof replacement, and new roof installation. An expert, experienced team can install a complete asphalt shingle roof in just a few days, assuming the weather cooperates. For homeowners on an accelerated timeline, choosing asphalt shingles makes sense.
