Has your roof sprung a leak, does it look dated, or is it missing shingles? Now is the perfect time to think about replacing that tired old leaky roof.
Once a roof starts to leak it can cause further damage on the inside of your home. With the right quality professional roofing company you can prevent damage from occurring. With many different roofing styles and materials to choose from, a new roof can transform any house into a work of art. The local roofing expert should know what types of roofing materials are best for the climate you live in, the warranties for each type, and the durability of each material. Some materials could even provide tax breaks.
Today’s most popular roofing materials include asphalt, cedar, slate, and metal. Asphalt shingles, also known 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 you would be looking for. If properly treated, cedar roofs can be fire resistant and can last for over 50 years.
Metal roofing is extremely durable and is best for protecting your home against weather, fire, insects, and rot. While the price 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 hefty price tag, slate is attractive and extremely durable. Slate roofs are known to last for over 100 years and require very little maintenance. No matter what roof you choose, be sure to find the right local roofing professional to guide you through the entire selection process and installation. Seek a professional that is properly licensed, insured, and has the correct tools and training to install the material you choose.
