When you’re replacing, repairing, or building a new roof, it can seem like an overwhelming process. And the less you know about roofing materials, the more lost you may feel. That’s why our highly skilled and professional roofing experts at Seamless Choice have come up with this handy guide to help you make the right choice when selecting the roof for your home.
5 Questions to Ask Yourself before Choosing Your Roofing Materials
In order to make the proper decision about which roofing materials you should use, we recommend that you ask yourself these five questions:
- How long do you want your roof to last?
- What type of weather issues are common in your area?
- Is there a limit to the amount of weight your home’s structure can endure?
- What type of slope or pitch does your roof have?
- What is your roofing budget?
(If you’re not sure how to answer some of these questions, not to worry. Our trained and motivated Home Improvement Specialists are available to assist you with finding the answers.)
Roofing Materials Choices
Now that you have a basic idea of what type of roof you want (and need), it is time to educate yourself on the roofing material choices available to you.
Here are some options when you use Seamless Choice as your local roofing contractor:
When it comes to shingles, asphalt composite shingles are the most common, but we also offer fiberglass shingles, wood shingles and shake, and dimensional asphalt shingles.
Another option is to choose either clay or concrete roofing tiles for your home; whichever suits you best.
These shingles are available in two common choices. A three tab shingle and an architectural shingle are the two most common choices. The most common fiberglass shingle usually comes with a 20-25 year warranty.
Slate roofs are some of the oldest around, but they are extremely durable which is what makes them a great choice for some homeowners.
Metal roofs are growing in favor, due to being fire retardant and maintenance free. Metal roofing cost more, but you will have a much longer lasting roof that is also hail resistant. With the right home, a steel roof can really improve the appearance, as well as the value.
