Vancouver Roofing Company Kitsilano Roofing Reveals Most Cost Effective Roofing Option

Kitsilano Roofing Company Kitsilano Roofing Advocates Asphalt as Affordable Long Term Roofing Solution

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - January 21, 2016) - Kitsilano Roofing, a roofing contractor in Vancouver, understands that replacing a roof can be expensive. When it's time to make the change, you've got quite a few options, such as asphalt shingles, tile, wood shakes, torch down, metal, and composition roofing. But which is best? According to the professionals at Kitsilano Roofing, asphalt shingles remain the go-to choice for value. For more information, go to:

"Asphalt shingles have a long life," says a company representative. "They're lightweight and have an attractive appearance. These lightweight tiles reduce pressure on the roofing structure, and there are many types to choose from. For example, some of the more expensive options contain a mixture of copper or tin to reduce moss growth."

Asphalt comes in several different styles, including strip shingles, laminated shingles, interlocking shingles, and individual shingles. Each of style has different purposes and strengths.

"For example, laminated shingles provide a highly aesthetic look that is preferred by architects, while interlocking shingles are a durable option that are particularly suited to windy climates."

These shingles do have their shortcomings. While the warranty can last up to 50 years, they can occasionally become damaged before the warranty expires. This typically will not be a problem, unless the manufacturer determines that the shingles were improperly installed.

"Ultimately, asphalt roofing is a wonderfully cost effective option, but you still need to find a reputable contractor to install it. Make sure you do your research, and asphalt shingles will be a great long term investment for your home."
