Choosing a New Roof for Your Home

house-634358_1920When it comes to household updates you’re accustomed to picking out paint colors and choosing tile patterns. But choosing how you want your roof to look? That’s a new one for many. Whether you’re building a home from scratch or choosing a new roof for an existing home, there are number of considerations when selecting the best roof.

Often, style or aesthetic comes to mind first. What do you prefer the roof look like and how would it best match the style of your homes exterior – be that siding, brick or stone? Your finishing options include anything from asphalt, wood and composite shingles, to slate, concrete and clay tiles. But even more important that the look of your roof, are the quality and types of materials used, as well as installation and product costs. Naturally you have a budget that you need to be conscious of as well.

Costs include the prices of the materials, as well as labor, but there are other areas that need to be factored in. Is there an existing room on the home that needs to be torn off and does the supporting structure need repairs?

When designing your roofs look, keep in mind that not every roofing material can be used on every roof type. Just because you think clay tiles look best, doesn’t mean that’s the right choice for the roofs layout.
