Your roof is one of the most important structural components of your home. It's your home's first line of defense against the elements and ensuring that it's doing its job is super important. If it's time for you to invest in a roof replacement, there are a number of factors to consider when choosing a roofing material. How long the material will last and how much it costs are generally the top concerns for most homeowners. Each material has its own benefits and considerations.
If you're interested in the most affordable roofing material, asphalt shingles--which are the most popular type of roofing--are a good choice and they last for about 20 years. If you're interested in more longevity and less maintenance, metal roofing materials can last more than 50 years and they're more wind resistant--but the costs are higher. Of the metal roofing materials, steel roofing generally has the lowest price point.
We want make replacing your roof an easy process. We can help you choose the best roofing material for your home and install it quickly.
