Choosing the Best Roof Materials for Your Home
If you are a regular reader of our blog, you will know that we at Drew’s Home Roofing and Repair want our customers to stay in the know about the majority of our industry. This does not mean we want you to attempt repairs on your own, but it does mean you should be aware of the rest of the industry.
When selecting an initial roof, repair or replacement, there are more options that you may realize. There are four main roofing materials we use for roofing, and we want you to know a bit about each. Use these as a guide to drive your roofing choices, but it is not a substitute for professional knowledge.
1. Shingles – This is the standard roofing material. It has plenty of color choices, it is durable and it’s cost-efficient for many homes.
2. EPDM – A fancy term for synthetic rubber that is an oil derivative. This type of roofing material is best for flat roofs. It is definitely growing in popularity among homeowners everywhere.
3. Metal – This is the roofing material that is designed to last and last for a lifetime. Mostly a steel and aluminum mixture, metal roofs are screwed into the wood frame rather than nailed. Metal is the most expensive but the most durable of all roofing materials.
4. Slate – Natural stone with a unique beauty. Slate lasts for a long time but comes with the added difficulty of regular.
