When it’s time to choose a new roof for your home, you might find yourself overwhelmed by the options. Finding the right match for your home’s roof is a critical step in good home care as your roof is one of the most vital parts of your home. Making an ill-informed decision out of haste or choosing the cheapest possible option can lead to expensive, severe damage that might just result in the loss of your entire home. Taking the time to consider your options and being knowledgeable about what you truly can help ensure you choose a roof that will serve your home well.
As you begin to weigh the choices, know that merely choosing a newer version of what was previously used may not be the best choice for your home. Each style and material has its own advantages and disadvantages. Working with a professional, honest roofer can help ensure that you’re making the best choices.
Understand the Cost
Putting a new roof on your home can be quite expensive. The prices range significantly based on the materials you choose and the labor of the company you pick. If you select one of the more popular roofing materials (asphalt-fiberglass shingles) your overall costs will be lower because they are both inexpensive as a material and easy to install. Wood and clay shingles and cost significantly more, with steel and copper being the most expensive types of roofing available.
Consider Installation Issues
Depending on the type of material you choose, your installation may require a more intensive set of equipment, more time, and a larger budget. Depending on the overall weight of the material, you may need to add structural support to the frame of your home. Meanwhile, some types of roofing require different types of framing and dangerous tools to complete.
Last but not least, consider the overall look and theme of your home. Some options may not work well with the architecture of your home. Clay tile, for instance, can look very unusual on a Cape Cod style home while looking perfect on a Mediterranean or Spanish style home.
