Choosing a New Roof for your House
Posted on April 24th, 2015
While choosing a new roofing system for their house every homeowner looks for something that is low in cost and offers durability at the same time. But, architectural style of the roof is another important aspect of the roof that is often overlooked. Here are the 4 most popular types of roofs available today that you can consider replacing with your existing roof:
Asphalt shingles: These are available either in organic shingles or fiberglass shingles. Organic shingles have a wooden base saturated with asphalt, on the other hand, fiberglass shingles have a fiberglass mat with the upper and lower layers of asphalt.
Wood shingles: These are made up of different types of wood like redwood, cedar and pine. No doubt, they look aesthetically appealing but their lower resistance to fire makes them an unpopular choice. Moreover, due to their poor fire resistance characteristic certain local bodies also restrict their use in shingles.
Tile: Tile can be either clay or concrete. It is one of the most durable roofing materials and come in a variety of designs and color options. However, since tile can be excessively heavy make sure that the structure is strong enough to bear the load of the tiles.
Metal: Metal roofs come in either panels or shingles. They have several advantages. Right from being lightweight to extremely durable, they are also known for their aesthetic appeal and ability to withstand harsh weather conditions.
