f you look at the roofs of the homes in your neighborhood, more than likely you will find that the majority have asphalt shingle roofs. You can recognize them by the tiles in different shades of gray. Asphalt shingles are easy to install. In fact, you can install new shingles right on top of your existing ones. They are also fairly durable, since they have a covering layer of asphalt that protects them from damage by sun and rain. As for pricing, they are among the cheapest materials you can use for your roof.
All these facts make it understandable that it is a common roofing material. The main problem with asphalt shingles is that the textured surface make it easier for moss, algae and mold to get a foothold. To prevent this, it is important that the roof is not under constant shade and that water isn’t allowed to gather on it. Branches and leaves should be removed from the roof regularly, since they can keep water, and if you notice algae or mold growing on your roof, clean it off immediately with a 50/50 solution of bleach and water.
