Understanding The True Cost of Your Asphalt Shingle Roof

Asphalt roofs are one of the most cost­ effective types of roof available from ThunderStruck Restorations LLC.  But there are many other reasons that most homeowners in Minnesota have asphalt shingle roofing.

When you get an asphalt shingle roof from ThunderStruck Restorations, you get so much more than a stylish and durable roof on your home.  A new roof can dramatically increase your property’s market value, according to real estate agents. Homeowners look for properties they won’t need to constantly maintain or fix up. As well, if you’re renovating your home, choosing between asphalt shingle, metal, or other types of roofing material for your residence will determine your roof maintenance schedule for the foreseeable future. If you live in Ham Lake, MN, you can trust ThunderStruck Restorations to provide the best advice, installation services and quality materials for your home’s new roof.

Asphalt Shingle Roofs are Affordable

The cost of an asphalt shingle roof installation is usually much less than other types and up to half or more of a metal roof. You’re probably wondering if asphalt shingles do as good a job as other types of roofing?  Yes, over hundreds and hundreds of roof installations we can confirm they do when properly installed by a professional roofing crew.

All of the roofing options from ThunderStruck Restorations will do a great job protecting your home in Ham Lake from the weather in Minnesota  Installation costs are lower for asphalt shingle roofing because they are much less labor intensive than other types of roofing. A quality asphalt roof installation is typically done much quicker (often in one day, sometimes two) and with less required precision than metal roofing.

This is because a metal roof requires specialized professionals to install and maintain specific kinds of material. Using dissimilar materials during a metal roof installation will cause rapid corrosion.  Your structure must be able to support the weight of other roof types as well and Asphalt shingles are quite light.

Asphalt shingles are plentiful as they are the most popular roof type in Waukesha and they have less building material type requirements.

Maintenance Costs are Lower for Asphalt Shingle Roofs

The main reason behind the differences in cost between metal and asphalt shingle roofs is the need for maintenance. Metal roofs do not require half as much maintenance as asphalt roofs. This is because an asphalt roof may need routine repair and replacement every 15 years or more.

Metal roofs can go as long as 50 years without routine maintenance.  However, if a metal roof needs repairs or routine maintenance sooner, the costs of that work is much higher compared to work done on asphalt shingle roofs. A metal roof installation can be complex and require more labor intensive work for professional roofers. Metal roofing panels can also lose their color over time and may need to be recoated to protect them from ice build up. As well, special equipment and support structures may need to be built for metal roofs which drive their cost.

Asphalt shingles can be sourced quickly and cheaply for you if you need them which means replacements are done faster and more affordably on average. As well, you won’t need to endure the same high cost of a metal roof because the shingles are ready made. They don’t need to be treated or retreated like metal roof panels do. Simply replacing the shingle with the same type will restore your roofs water resistance and aesthetic appeal.
