Is your roof in need of repair? Do you have a leaky roof that forces you to haul out the buckets when it rains? Are you sick and tired of the drip-drip-drip sound throughout the night? Or perhaps your roof is simply outdated and dull.
Well, whatever the reason for having your roof replaced, choosing the best roofing materials is essential to the aesthetic beauty of your home, as well as to the durability and lifespan of your new roof.
There are many great roofing materials to choose from, as well as wonderful styles and colors.
- Tiles: Tile roofing is highly durable and resistant to harsh weather conditions. If properly installed, tile roofing will prevent leaky roofs and ceilings. And while tiled roofs may cost more than other options, they are long lasting and a beautiful upgrade to any home.
- Asphalt Shingles: Fiber-glass based, asphalt shingles are the most common type of roofing throughout the state of Georgia. Why? Because these shingles are heavy, durable, relatively inexpensive, and easy to install and repair. Moreover, they come in a variety of colors and styles to choose from.
- Slate shingles and architectural roofing shingles are two alternatives to the common asphalt shingle.
- Slate shingles are composed of fine-grained metamorphic rock with a very low water absorption rate. These can last over 100 years! Their rugged, natural texture and color can be seen on many homes in Northern Europe.
- Architectural roofing shingles are a new generation in the traditional asphalt shingle. Made from synthetic slate, these have the appearance of traditional shingles but can be used in more distinctive and creative ways.
There are millions of ways to make your home unique and wonderful, both inside and out. However, having a solid, high quality roof above your head is one way to both protect the upkeep of your home, while also improving its appearance.
