Plenty of Options When Choosing Your New Roof


Installing a new roof is a major investment. The materials you choose for your new roof will affect the style of your home and its value. A new roof not only improves your home’s curb appeal but offers a return on investment of over 60% upon resale. That’s in addition to the savings you’ll enjoy from improving the energy efficiency of your home with newer roofing materials.

As this infographic from Severe Weather Roofing and Restoration shows, there are lots of options to choose from when you are ready to install your new roof. With so many choices, you can customize your home and find your perfect style.

First, there’s the old that is still new material- slate. Slate roofs are expensive and require additional structural support, but they are timeless beauties. Besides, when you consider the lifespan of a slate roof, the cost doesn’t seem quite so high.

Concrete is a newer entry in the roofing market. A concrete roof offers a unique look and extended durability. Like tile, concrete is made from naturally occurring materials which makes it an environmentally friendly choice. Speaking of tile, this roofing material has been around for a very long time. But the tile style and color options available now make this roofing choice a modern marvel.

Metal roofing has become increasing popular in recent years. Metal roofs are energy efficient and able to stand up to hurricane gales. Metal roofing materials come in a wide array of colors and styles. You can expect to see more homeowners choosing metal roofing in the years to come.

Wood shake shingles continue to be a choice for homeowners who want a distinctive natural look. With a lifespan similar to asphalt and made of sustainable materials, these shingles may be just the look you are looking for in a roof.

Finally, despite the introduction of many new materials and old materials made fashionable again, most Americans still choose asphalt tiles when building a new home or replacing an existing roof. Asphalt tile design has come a long way. Homeowners can now choose shapes, colors, and styles that mimic more expensive materials at a fraction of the cost.

Whatever you choose to place on your roof, be sure to choose a qualified professional to help you with the installation. That way you can ensure that your investment will be a lasting one.
