Types of Roofing Materials
When you need to replace your roofing system, you need to decide which material will not only increase your home’s curb appeal, but also what you’re willing to put up with maintenance-wise. Green Tree Solutions has experienced roofing contractors on staff to help you select the right roof for you.
Which Roofing Material Is Right for Your Home?
Green Tree Home Solutions understands that selecting a new roof can be a daunting task. You have so many choices, but not all will work for your home. That’s why it’s important to weigh the different options. We’ve been doing this work for years, and we recommend the following roof types:
- Asphalt shingles. These shingles are some of the least expensive options on the market, but that doesn’t mean that they’re “cheap.” In fact, quality architectural shingles can last for 20 to 30 years.
- Wood shakes. Nothing beats the beauty of natural wood. Wood shakes are thick wedges with a rough texture. While they do require additional maintenance, this roofing option can dramatically increase your home’s curb appeal.
- Custom metal roofing. Metal can last for many years – often 50 years or more. It is also relatively immune to fire and heavy snowfall. The major selling point of this roofing system is that it’s practically maintenance-free and is available in a wide variety of colors.
- Flat roofing. While commonly seen on commercial roofing systems, flat roofs have become more popular on residential roofs. They create additional living space and may provide storage of HVAC units and similar components.
