There are just some things that should not be put off. Replacing an old, outdated roof or ill ventilated roof is one of them. Neglect your roof now, and you will have a huge issue to deal with later.

Some signs of a poor roof are obvious. The curling, buckling shingles or the leaking chimney flashing are sure signs that something needs to be done, but there are other subtle indicators that are harder to spot, but just as dangerous. For example, look for tiny granules in the gutters. They are hard to see, but are a definite sign that your roof shingles are breaking down. Another subtle clue is a spongy feeling when you walk on the roof. Of course, walking on the roof is not the safest thing for a homeowner to do. It is best left to roofing professionals.

The good news is that if a new roof is warranted or wanted, today’s homeowners have many solid options to choose among. Today’s most popular roofing materials include asphalt, cedar, slate and metal. Each has its own pros and cons. Your roofing expert should know what types of materials are best for the climate you live in; warranties that are available, and the durability of each material. Some materials could even provide tax breaks.

Asphalt singles, also knows as composite shingles, are most widely used because they are most affordable, lightweight and fire resistant. Asphalt shingles come in many different colors and will typically last 15-25 years.

Cedar roofs come in two types: cedar shake roof or the cedar shingles roof. The difference lays in their texture. Cedar roofs have all the aesthetic appeal homeowners look for in a roof style. If properly treated, cedar roofs can be fire resistant and can last for more than 50 years.

Metal roofing is extremely durable and is best for protecting your home against weather, fire, insects and rot. While the cost is higher then asphalt, some insurance companies will give a discount for installing a metal roof. Today’s metal roofs are quiet and built to last a lifetime.

Slate is the ultimate luxury roofing material and the only natural material. While it carries a higher price tag, slate is attractive and extremely durable. Slate roofs are known to last for over 100 years and require very little maintenance. They are the only choice for a discriminating owner.

No matter what roof you choose be sure to seek the right professional to guide you through the entire selection process and installation. Only choose a professional who is properly licensed, insured and has the correct tools and training to install your selected roofing material.
