When installing a new roof on your home
you can choose from many types of roofing materials. You can reroof
with the same type of roofing material that you currently have or
investigate alternatives. Some materials are environmentally friendly
and some are long lasting or low maintenance.
Before making your choice, consider the
lifecycle cost of your roofing material. Some materials, although
initially more expensive, require less maintenance and have a longer
life expectancy than others. An asphalt composition roof might last
20 years, but a metal roof can last more than 50 and might be more
cost-effective in the long run. Below are some of the roofing choices
available to you.
