Almost all homeowners believe that they may choose a new roofing material solely based on aesthetics, but this is not the case. Although the outside appeal is important, your roof is responsible for practically everything that makes your home habitable. Jahs Glory recommends focusing on these crucial factors when choosing the suitable roofing material for your home and lifestyle:
Pay attention to your roof pitch to help you narrow down your material list. Your roof’s ability to drain water is a crucial element. Asphalt shingles are the most popular option, but that’s only because most homes have a steep pitch. Instead, use a specific solution that is more leak-resistant when exposed to pooling water if some of your roof’s slopes are low.
Thinking about how durable the material is critical. Proper installation and maintenance can make a roof last for as long as possible, but one should know the expected longevity of the product. In addition, the quality of the product defines its weather resistance, so knowing how one reacts to elements and the type of climate in your area is essential.
When it’s time to replace your roof, keep tradition in mind. If your home is built in a traditional design, the materials used are likely to be pre-determined by history. For example, wood shakes, slates, and stone tiles are commonly used in historic homes. On the other hand, metal roofing systems are better for modern buildings.
The weight of the material impacts the timeline and labor cost of your project. If you choose a heavier material than the one that currently covers your property, structural changes may be required to ensure that the increased weight is supported.
Always check your budget to figure out how much you can afford. Keep in mind that the prices of roofing products can differ significantly, and materials take up a significant portion of your project’s cost. Also, make sure to have room in your budget for labor, permit applications, and unexpected changes.
