Factors to Consider When Choosing a Roofing Material

Investing in a roof replacement is an excellent opportunity to improve your home’s functionality and enhance its protection. The right roofing material can help you maximize on all these benefits. To help you choose the best material for your specific needs and preferences, Roofing Experts shares the different factors you can consider.

 

Slope

The roof slope measures a roof’s steepness. It’s important to consider this, as not all materials perform the same on different slopes. For instance, tiles aren’t an ideal choice for low-slope roofs, but a metal membrane is. This is because the structure and weight of tiles makes them a problematic choice for flat roofs; they look and perform better on steep-sloped roofs.

Curb Appeal and Design

Your roofing system plays a key role in your home’s curb appeal. When selecting a material, you should consider the appearance of a material and how it looks on your home’s existing exterior. For instance, our metal roofing can add modern appeal to your home, while tile roofing adds a touch of Old World elegance. Consider your home’s architectural style and existing exterior elements and choose a material that ties the look together.

Longevity

Your roof is responsible for protecting your home against the elements and other damaging factors. That’s why it’s important to choose a material that can offer superior protection for many years. Roofing Experts offers a range of highly durable materials like slate and tile that can last for up to 50 years.
