  • One of the most important parts of a house is the roof. The roof is what makes your home a shelter.

    It is also what protects you from the elements. Without a strong roof that works as it should, moisture will leak into your home and cause thousands of dollars of damage.

    However, there are many different choices for roofs on the market. Which would be best for your home?

Asphalt Shingles

Notes:

  • One of the most popular choices for a roof is one with asphalt shingles. These shingles are actually composed of fiberglass that is situated between granules of ceramic and asphalt.
  • The asphalt is used because it’s water proof. Ceramic granules provide color and block UV light. The fiberglass provides strength. Asphalt shingles are an excellent and cost-effective choice for many homes.
  • Keep in mind, however, that asphalt shingles don’t last forever and older shingles can sometimes come off your roof during strong windstorms.

Metal roofing

Notes:

  • Another choice you should consider is metal roofing. Options for metal roofing include aluminum, copper, steel and steel alloy. The reasons to choose metal roofing for your residential roof installation include strength and durability.
  • Metal is obviously stronger than other choices and will last much longer against the elements. You may not ever need to install roofing again.
  • Still, there are a few downsides. For one a metal roof can make a lot of noise during a rain storm. It is also the most expensive choice.

Faux slate shingles

Notes:

  • Another choice is faux slate shingles. The shingles are made from composite but do really look like real slate rock. It’s a way to give your home that upscale look without having to pay a fortune for shingles actually made from real stone.
  • They last about as long as asphalt shingles but cost a bit more. However, they do last longer than their real slate counterparts. They can also be recycled at the end of their life, so if you care about the environment, they can be a great choice.
  • One downside is they are slicker. Install snow guards to prevent ice from sliding off a faux slate roof.

Going with tile

Notes:

  • A classic option is tile roofs, which are extremely durable, with a colorful, rustic beauty. They are perfect for warm climates and available in a variety of styles. Additionally, if you are environmentally minded, they can be recycled once they are replaced.
  • However, they can also be quite heavy, even requiring structural reworking if you are adding them to a pre-existing home. They are quite expensive to install and purchase and while repairs are rarely needed, they can also be expensive.
  • Depending on your budget and climate, tile roofing might be the perfect choice for you.

The eco look: solar shingles

Notes:

  • Lastly, a newer choice on the market that is beginning to gain popularity is the use of solar shingles. Solar shingles look like roof singles but operate similarly to solar panels. Tesla is the manufacturer of one version of this kind of shingle.
  • As can be expected, they are currently extremely expensive, much more expensive even than traditional solar panels. However, the possibility of solar shingles becoming more popular in the future as a way to cut energy costs and greenhouse emissions is strong.
  • CONCLUSION
    Overall, your roof is very important. It makes a strong visual statement in regards to curb appeal. It also helps to protect your house from the elements.

    Put a lot of thought into the roof you choose to install on your home. Keep in mind that there are plenty of options. Look at the above suggestions for a place to start, and see what will work best for the home you are trying to create.
