Thanks to advances in the manufacturing of roofing products, the average homeowner now has plenty of options to pick for a new roof. However, you might still feel overwhelmed with the sheer number of options. Don’t worry! We can help you select the right material.
Different roofing materials will have different costs per square foot. For example, slate roofing is one of the most sought after options, but it has a relatively high initial cost compared to metal or asphalt shingle. However, if you have the budget for high-end roofing, you can expect more long-term value out of them.
Your roof’s profile can also limit the materials that will suit your home’s needs. For example, if your roof has a steep slope, you’re better off using tile or shingle roofing. On the other hand, our roofing experts recommend ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) or membrane roofing for larger flat roof profiles.
Roofing materials can be hit or miss depending on the style of your home. Asphalt shingles are generally considered safe picks. On the other hand, slate or tile roofs are more suitable for classic-themed homes while standing seam metal roofs and flat roofing materials are better for contemporary home designs.
The last thing you want is your home to breach building codes or regulations set by your local homeowner’s association. Aside from possibly compromising your roof’s performance, it will also make your home stand out among the neighborhood in a bad way. Roof replacement experts recommend working with certified local roofers, which are already familiar with your area’s building restrictions.
