How to Choose the Right Roofing Material for Your Home
When it comes to roofing, the stakes are high. A roof is one of the most important investments a homeowner ever makes, because it plays a key role in the safety of the home’s structure, and in its resale value.
Available roofing materials have expanded in the last few years, so choosing the right one can be overwhelming. At Alex Feher Roofing, our roof replacements, repairs, and remodeling are professionally performed using the highest quality materials from Malarkey Roofing Products. Here we outline for you the popular types of roofing materials to help you make the very best choice to suit your taste and to serve as the crowning glory of your home!
Cedar Wood Shingles: Often considered the ultimate roofing material. It ages naturally over time, with a beautiful gray patina. Wood has a high wind resistance that can usually withstand gusts of up to 200 miles per hour, and roofs made from cedar wood can last up to 30 years.
Asphalt Shingles: The most popular choice for today’s properties, and they come in a multitude of styles and colors. Many of these styles mimic the look of weathered wood shingles or even slate roofs.
Clay & Concrete Tiles: These have a high durability that can withstand strong winds, and they’re also energy efficient and more fire resistant than competing options. Clay tiles have to be routinely maintained, since they tend to crack over time.
Metal Roofing: This is one of the fastest-growing materials on the market. They come in either large panels or individual shingles made from aluminum, steel, or copper. The most appealing aspect of this durable material is that it’s nearly maintenance-free and lasts up to 50 years.
