When it comes time to install a replacement roof on your home, you will have many decisions to make. An experienced contractor for roofing in Menlo Park or Palo Alto, CA can assess your roof and determine its slope and the best type of asphalt shingles to install, such as three-tab, dimensional, or architectural. Before making your final decision, consider these benefits of putting a new asphalt shingle roof on your home.
Asphalt shingles are the most affordable material used for roofing. A new asphalt shingle roof costs about one third the price of a metal or wood shake roof, and is only one fifth the cost of a slate tile roof. Even the top-of-the-line asphalt shingles cost less to install than the most basic type of any other roofing material.
