Responsible homeowners expect to have all the details about repairs, installation materials and methods outlined to them. Finding out what’s available and how these options can benefit you will help you make informed decisions.
Today, Spicer Bros. Construction, Inc. outlines the material options for your residential roofing system:
The most common roof material, asphalt shingles are the “default” choice for most homeowners thanks to their cost-effectiveness and ease of installation. Asphalt shingles offer excellent durability and a solid lifespan of around 20-25 years.
Thanks to better materials technology, metal residential roofing options have now become more commonplace as well. Metal is gaining popularity among homeowners because of its durability and minimal upkeep requirements. Metal is lightweight and quiet, which puts less strain on the household. In addition, rain and snow just roll off the roof and will not get stuck in “seams,” as they would with shingles.
Slate roofing has the same properties of metal in that it can withstand the elements even better than an asphalt roof. What sets it apart, however, is that it’s the most durable material with the best visual appeal. A slate roof can last for more than 50 years.
If classic beauty is a priority, consider wood shakes. Wood has a unique, organic feel, combined with excellent performance and durability.
Each material has its own pros and cons, and a reliable roofing company can make sure you’re considering all key factors so that you’re making a smart decision.
