If your roof is in need of replacement, one of the biggest decisions you will need to make is what type of materials you wish to replace it with. Consumers have a number of options ranging from clay tiles to cedars shakes, but the option most frequently chosen is asphalt shingles.

In this article, blogger D. Swain of the Yahoo Contributor Network, lists and expounds on five of the top advantages of this type of shingle. These advantages include:

  • Easy maintenance
  • Easy installation
  • Appearance
  • Low cost
