Fiberglass composition asphalt shingles are the most commonly used roofing material in use today. Many consumers are unaware of the alternatives that better suit their needs and budgets. It's important to consider roofing options before selecting the one that clearly outperfroms the others. Here we explore asphalt shingles versus Gerard roofing systems, a superior alternative, to help you understand why it is the best choice for your next roofing project.
How to improve the look and durability of your home.
Both fiberglass composition asphalt shingles and metal roofing shingles by Gerard are available in many types and colors. The appeal and color versatility of asphalt shingles can be attributed to their exterior colored stone chips. However, asphalt shingles scar easily in the heat and the paint is vulnerable to chipping, limiting the time homeowners can enjoy the look of their new asphalt shingle roof. In contrast, Gerard roofing systems are more durable and have the dimensional look of tile and shake.
Gerard roofing shingles and shakes also are stone-coated for aesthetic appeal. Unlike asphalt shingles and their mediocre paint application, Gerard's top-quality materials and intricate process of applying its coatings, provide homeowners with a long-lasting roofing system and other significant benefits, such as paint wear prevention, UV protection and more.
