A Guide To Choosing The Right Roof

Choosing the right roof for your home is no easy task. The color, material, and cost play significant roles in decided the on the right roof for you. Here are some handy topics to think about to make your decision a little bit easier.

Asphalt shingles are the most common variety of roofing for homes. They are inexpensive and perform well in cold weather and in areas prone to high-winds. However, they are not very environmentally friendly and do not have the same durability of other roofing materials.

Metal roofing can come in many different types of metals, meaning there are plenty of choices for the color and look of your roof. They can be made from recycled materials and can also be recycled. They reflect heat well (lowering energy costs), are lightweight, and last a long time. This style of roofing, however, is more expensive than asphalt roofing. These roofs should be considered for those with a big budget.

Clay tile roofing has been used for centuries, and for good reason. The shape and color of clay tiles can vary widely and can be tailored to fit the homeowner’s desires. They are very environmentally friendly since they come from natural sources. They have a long lifespan and are extremely fire resistant. The downsides of clay tiles are that they are heavier than other materials and are expensive. However, they look great and are an excellent investment if you are looking to avoid roof repairs in the future.
