Things to Consider Before Choosing Your Roof Material

Jun 22, 2018

Roofing materials vary; from the popular asphalt shingles to the sturdy slate, there are enough options for whatever kind of roof you’re planning to build. Which one is right for you, however? Rogers Roofing, Inc., sheds light on the factors you need to consider.

Roof Material


The first thing you need to consider is the materials themselves. Asphalt, metal, slate and tile are just some of the most popular options, with each having its exclusive benefits. For example, asphalt shingles are easier to install than metal roofs, but metal is more durable. Weigh the pros and cons of each material to see if they fit your plans.


The next most important thing is durability. Though metal roofing is sturdier than asphalt shingles, for example, material cost and replacement can also be factors in your decision. We can help you find the roofing material with the right level of durability for your roof without breaking your budget.


Not only are all roofing materials aesthetically distinct from one another, their assortment of styles, colors and design creates a spectrum of choice unique to that material. Hiring a professional eye can give you the guidance to choose the right color and design combination for your roof.
