Replacing your roof makes sense if it is showing its age. Regardless of the circumstances that led to its deterioration, planning carefully for this major home improvement project is imperative.
In this blog, your local roofing contractor discusses the factors to consider when choosing the right roofing material for your home.
Durability and Resilience
Your new roof should be able to withstand inclement weather and other elements. Be sure that the roofing material you choose is one that can bear the brunt of Mother Nature for a long time. While asphalt shingles remain the top choice for residential roofing, you might want to consider other alternatives like metal roofing, which has a longer lifespan than asphalt shingles, along with comparable durability and resilience.
Make sure to consider the life-cycle cost of your new roof as well as the upfront coss. Metal, for instance, might be costlier to install than asphalt shingles, but it lasts twice as long and requires less maintenance. This makes metal more cost efficient in the long run for your roof replacement project.
What should your new roof look like? Remember that all roofing materials generally have the same function, with their differences lying mostly on the styles and textures. Asphalt shingles are now available in various profiles that mimic the look of wood shakes and slate. Other alternatives have a more extensive color palette.
