  • Residential Roofing Indianapolis

    The roof is arguably the most important part of the home; in fact, without a roof, a house can hardly be called a home. The roof provides comfort, security, and safety from the elements. So if the roof ends up with any kind of damage, it could end up compromising all of the qualities that the roof is supposed to provide. The roof is particularly susceptible to wear and tear since it is exposed to the elements, and in Indianapolis, those elements can be varied and unpredictable.


Why Asphalt Remains Popular for Residential Roofing

Asphalt shingles roofing systems remain the most popular roofing choice for homeowners thanks to their strength and affordability. Despite seeing competition from newer materials in the past few years, asphalt shingles are still the top pick. Read on as Universal Roofing and Exteriors explains why.

Why Asphalt Remains Popular for Residential Roofing

Advanced Asphalt Shingles

The technical advances that propelled modern roofing materials like metal didn’t leave asphalt behind, and asphalt is now more durable and elementally resilient than ever before. In the past, asphalt was just a shingle component, and, while stronger than wood, it was still vulnerable to water intrusion and physical trauma.

Now, asphalt roofing boasts multiple barriers and natural ventilation to avoid moisture penetration. The same technologies have also bolstered its resilience, making it more fire-, wind-, and impact-resistant than it was in the past.

Asphalt and the Environment

The same advances in technology have made asphalt shingles one of the more environmentally friendly choices, often on par with metal and other stronger roofing systems. The advent of computerized equipment has also made production more efficient, and resulting in less waste. Your torn-off asphalt shingles are recyclable and can be used to create roads throughout the country. And if that wasn’t enough, you can even invest in specialized asphalt shingles with higher solar reflectance, allowing you to reduce your home’s energy usage considerably.
