These are the things to consider when choosing a roof for your home:
- Weather Protection
Your roof should be able to protect your home from the sun, rain, snow, and natural disasters such as thunderstorms, hail storms, and tornadoes, so it’s critical that you choose the right material. For instance, asphalt shingles are fire-resistant because it is made out of fiberglass. A metal roofing, on the other hand, lasts longer and is wind resistant. Remember to stay away from wood materials if you’re concerned about wind and fire.
- Architectural design
Choosing a roofing material also depends on the style of your home. For example, clay tiles are great for Mediterranean houses. They’re long-lasting and fire-resistant but doesn’t have great wind resistance. Wood shingles and plastic polymer are ideal if you’re building a craftsman-style house. A roof that matches your home increases your home’s value and aesthetic.
If you intend to stay in the house for many years, it’s always worth it to pay for materials that have longer life spans, that’s why it’s important to ask a roofing specialist about a material’s longevity and durability.
- Roof slope
It’s also important to ask your roofing contractor if the type of roofing fits your home’s roof slope to avoid any roof installation issues.
It’s essential to know what you’re willing to spend. Hiring an experienced and credible roofing company will also save you from unnecessary installation costs.
