How to Choose the Right Roof

Get a Free Quote Today!

There are numerous types of roofs on the market. Choosing the right one for your home, shed, or garage can be more difficult than it seems. There are several things to consider when deciding on what’s right for you. For starters, you need to think about the weather conditions of your area and the maintenance difficulty of the roof design you choose. Keep reading to learn about factors that can help you decide on the right roof.

Looks Matter More Than You Think

Let’s talk about aesthetics. Are you looking for a new residential roof? Some neighborhoods have rules and restrictions regarding roofing. For example, they might only allow certain roof shapes and types of roofing materials. Make sure to check with your city or county before making a decision.

You also need to think about the overall look of your home. Clashing colors between the walls and roofing shingles can make your home stand out in a bad way. When it comes to shed roofs or detached garage roofs, you’ll want them to match your home. Unless you have a different idea that will complement your house even better. In that case, feel free to experiment.

Durability Above All

All roof types are durable when professionally installed. However, certain roof styles will do better in specific weather conditions. It’s not only rain, hail, snow, sun, or high winds that can damage your roof. You also need to think about extreme weather conditions, like hurricanes.

Having a resilient roof means that it won’t cave in if a heavy branch falls onto it. Living in areas prone to wildfires is another reason to think carefully about your roof. You’ll want to go for something that won’t catch fire from flying embers (so forget about wood shingles).

Think About Your Budget

Lastly, you need to make sure your choices are affordable. Everything else comes second if you’re on a tight budget. You may find the perfect style for your home, but find out it’s outside of your price range. Some materials can cost more than others too. Here’s a word of advice: Find a good roofing company that will do the job perfectly at an acceptable price for both parties. A great roofing company will also help you decide on suitable roof styles and design.
