The Only Asphalt Shingles That Give a Metal Roof a Run for Its Money

In nearly article we write, we bring up asphalt shingles. We usually tell you how they’re inferior to metal roofing because they simply don’t hold up as long, and why you should switch to a better type of roof to reap the many benefits they offer.

To be honest, not everyone can have a metal roof. Not every person out there wants a metal roof, despite the advantages they offer. At the same time, they want the longest lasting roof available. That’s where ShieldRoof comes in, delivering the best asphalt shingle option available on the market. Let’s take a look at a situation where ShieldRoof is the best choice for a homeowner.

Who Doesn’t Want a Metal Roof?

When we offer metal roofs to people, they’re often blown away by the benefits, such as reducing energy bills while requiring so little upkeep. But they still have to say no. Why? Nearly 100-percent of the time it’s because of homeowner association restrictions. While HOAs are great for keeping the neighborhood looking nice, they can be a pain when they prevent you from getting the best roof possible. All of those arbitrary rules can make it more difficult to retain the value of your home and keep it protected from the elements! Unless you live in a neighborhood that only allows tile roofs, the ShieldRoof will meet all the requirements for roofing.

Then there are the customers who simply don’t like the aesthetics of a metal roof. They’re few and far between, but they’re out there. We understand this and wanted to be able to provide them with the highest-quality asphalt shingles out there. We searched around and decided that the ShieldRoof asphalt shingles were the answer.

So…What Makes ShieldRoof So Great?

There are four aspects of Hippo’s ShieldRoof that make it better than any other asphalt shingle out there:

  1. Long Lasting — ShieldRoof is guaranteed to last 50 years or more. That’s more than 2.5 times longer than your average asphalt roof! Wouldn’t it be nice to know that, once it’s installed, you’re essentially done with roofing for the rest of your life?
  2. Resistance to Damage — When shingles are manufactured well enough to hold up to 50 years in the Florida sun, they’re also sturdy enough to withstand the coastal weather we have here in Melbourne. Our asphalt shingles, combined with the quality installation we perform, ensure that they’ll stay on during the worst storms.
  3. Protect Your Home — The long-lasting nature and resistance to damage come together to do what a roof should do: protect your home. You need to have shingles that won’t crack and curl to reveal the unlying roof. Doing so could cause leaks that could severely damage your home. Prevent that damage with ShieldRoof!
  4. Improve Your Resale Value — When you get asphalt shingles from Hippo Roofing, it’s a great line item on your For Sale flyers. When the new owners see that you’ve installed such a high-quality roof and realize that they won’t have to worry about it anytime soon, your house can sell for more and also sell faster.

While we’ll never shut up about the benefits of metal roofs, we understand the need for asphalt roofing and only offer our customers the best. If you need top-quality roofing shingles with the best installation possible, contact Hippo Roofing today!
