Do you need a new roof? If so, you might be wondering what type of roof is best for your home. The three main types of roofing materials are asphalt shingles, shakes, and tile. If you’re not sure which of the three is best for your home, ask yourself the questions below to help you hone in on the best option.
What is your budget?
The first thing you need to consider is what your budget is. Different roofing materials have different costs. Asphalt shingles are likely to be your cheapest option, with wood shakes being more expensive. Ceramic tiles are by far the most expensive material, especially if your roof needs to be reinforced. The good news is that Guardian Roofs can work with you to find the perfect roofing material to fit your budget.
What is the style of your home?
The next thing to consider is the style of your home. Certain roofing materials look better with certain style homes. You really want to be sure that the option you choose looks good with the style of your home. Many of the roofing materials come in different colors, so be sure to order some samples to compare them against the color of your home. This will help you ensure that the roofing material you choose looks great with your home.
How long do you plan on living at the home?
Something else to keep in mind is how long you plan on living in your home. Roofing materials have different lifespans. Asphalt and wood shingles typically last 20 years. Architectural shingles last 30 to 50 years and metal roofs last 40 to 80 years. While more expensive, clay tiles last 60 to 150 years. If you’re planning on staying in your home indefinitely, it might be worth it to upgrade your roofing material so you don’t have to replace it again.
