Understanding the different roofing material options available will help you choose the best roof for your home. Consider your budget, your home’s style and whether or not you plan on staying in your current home for a long time. Today, as an experienced roofing contractor, we will discuss four of the most popular residential roof materials:
Metal – Metal roofs are resistant to extreme weather conditions and can help improve your home’s energy efficiency. They come in two styles: panels and shingles. They are sleek, lightweight and come in many different colors. Metal roofs look good on cabins, contemporary homes, cottage-style homes and bungalows.
Asphalt Shingles – Asphalt shingles are the most popular roofing option on the market because of their versatility and affordable cost. Asphalt shingles can protect your home from bad weather, come in a very wide range of colors and designs and look fantastic on all kinds of homes. As a GAF Master Elite® contractor, we can install GAF’s full range of asphalt shingles for your home, giving you tremendous flexibility.
Slate – Slate is an elegant and luxurious material choice for your roof. Slate roofs have a very distinct appearance that looks fantastic on traditional homes. Slate is more expensive to install than other materials; however, it does have an excellent lifespan. Slate roofs are durable and, with regular maintenance, can last for up to a century.
Clay – Clay tile is another traditional roofing choice. Like slate, it can last for a long time and withstand severe weather. However, its distinct appearance and color makes it best suited to specific home styles such as Spanish, Mission, Mediterranean and Southwestern homes.
There are other roofing materials available, such as wood and rubber. We can discuss the features and benefits of these materials in detail during our initial consultation. V.
