One of the most important structural elements of any home is the roof because it protects you and your family from all of the elements. Whether you are building your home from the ground up or renovating it, you want to take time designing your new roof. You want to choose a roof that is incredibly durable, as well as, aesthetically pleasing. Luckily, there are a few simple tips for choosing the perfect roof for your home.
When it comes to choosing roofing for your home, you need to take the slope of the structure into consideration. The slope of a roof is determined by the number of inches it rises for every 12 inches of horizontal run. Many roofs have a “4-in-12 slope”, which means it rises four inches for every twelves inches of horizontal run. Slate and asphalt materials can be installed for roofs that have a “4-in-12 slope” or steeper. If you have a low or flat-pitched roof, then you need to choose a material that can be installed seamlessly.
One of the most important factors to consider when choosing a roof is durability and longevity. You want to choose a material that is long-lasting and will withstand all of the elements. If you live in an area that experiences heavy downfall and high-speed winds frequently throughout the year, then you want to choose a highly durable material. Asphalt and metal are in-demand roofing material largely for their durability.
When choosing your new roofing, you want it to be as aesthetically pleasing as it is strong and long- lasting. You want a material that has a wide range of design and color options. Luckily, asphalt shingles come in a variety of colors and design preferences. So, your roof can be as bold or simple as you would like.
