Athens Ga Roofing

Asphalt shingle roofing has a lifespan in residential roofing applications generally of 15 to 35 years. Most asphalt shingle roofs should go at least 20 years and sometimes 30 years, but wind damage, hail storms and other environmental factors can take their toll on a roof. In Georgia the most economical asphalt shingle is the organic mat shingle, but in higher altitudes of the North Georgia mountains and the elevations of North and South Carolina many homeonwners opt for the more flexilble fiberglass reinforced mat asphalt shingles because they are less likely to crack in cold weather.
