The most commonly used roofing material here in the US is
asphalt shingles. Why is that? It is because they have a lot of
positive attributes. Asphalt shingles are among the lowest cost
options to choose from, it is very easy to install, and when well
cared for, they can last a long time.

When it comes to installing asphalt shingles, you have the
option to remove the old shingles, which isn’t very difficult, or
you could even choose to save some time and install the new
shingles on top of the old ones.

However, what are the downsides? One is the texture that the
shingles have. It makes it easier for things like moss and mold to
get a foothold, so you should be careful not to let water pool up
on your roof. If the roof develops a problem with mold, a mixture
of water and bleach can be used to clean it off.

It is better for the roof not to be in constant shade, since
this will encourage growth of moss, so it is a good idea to cut
back branches that cover your roof.
