The roof is the only layer that isolates your house from the elements, but it is also something that can be a sign of style and good design. Shingle roof replacement can seem costly, especially when the owner of a residential or commercial property is forced to take action due to severe damage to his roof damage. The average homeowner does not replace his shingle roof very often, so they need guidance in purchasing an energy-efficient, durable roof that complements the style of their home or building. Whether you purchase asphalt shingles or one of our beautiful metal roofs, a new roof will enhance and increase the value of your property and that is only 1 of the main reasons why you should replace your shingle roof. Let’s get into the most important reasons why you should make this change.


4 Reasons Why Replacing Your Shingles Will Be Beneficial For Your Property


Improved Insulation For Your Property

Whether you need a roof for your home or for one of your commercial properties, we reckon that you are familiar with high utility costs. Every time you receive your electric bill, you are probably thinking that it would be desirable to be able to find a way to reduce that bill. Replacing the shingles of your roof will improve your property’s insulation and help preserve the temperature within your home. Depending on the type of roof you choose, you could lower your electric bill by 20% or more – there are many types of energy saving shingles that will help you do that. Some of our roofs are designed to divert the sun’s rays, so your home remains cool in the summer, but also provide superior insulation that helps keep your structure warm in the winter; thereby lowering your utility expenses. For maximal utility savings, allow A Plus Roofing and Gutters also examine your windows. Window replacement will save you more money on your utility bills, since old windows may be made from inexpensive glass that is poorly sealed. Nevertheless, simply replacing the shingles of your roof will drastically improve your property’s insulation altogether.

Durability and Lengthy Warranties

Roofs built with shingles can have warranties that vary depending on the shingles and the manufacturer that made them. An asphalt shingle roof can last 15+ years or more, and they can last decades if they are well-maintained. For instance, most metal roofs have a warranty of a minimum of 30 years and may have warranties up to 50 years compared to shingle material, however, choosing shingles as your preferred material for your roof is far cheaper. When it is time to sell your home, buyers will be worried about the condition and age of the roof, so also remember that having a new roof installed or replaced is a valuable selling feature that can raise the value of your house. Many of our roofs are designed to be durable, and can even withstand weather elements including snow or hail. Many insurance companies also provide discounts for using some of our roofs so do not forget to check our website for more info regarding what roof material we recommend using.

There is a style and colour for any and every style of shingle. A Plus Roofing and Gutters services will set an appointment at your convenience and bring you all types of samples so you can choose what best fits your home.

Quick Upkeep

Shingles call for only minimum upkeep because they are produced from organic compounds and fibreglass which are effortless to wash. Some resources like metal, wood, and cedar call for continual care – a busy property owner can’t manage to take care of his roof continuously so that is why we strongly recommend choosing shingles as your preferred roof material of choice.
