Choosing the right roof

Choosing the right roof

MasterPro’s roofers in Akron, OH, can simplify choosing the right roof for your home. One of the first considerations when making a selection is the color and architectural style of your home. Consider how different materials will coordinate with its exterior and the surrounding landscaping, as well as the overall style of your neighborhood. If applicable, verify which materials are approved by your homeowner’s association and/or local building codes.

Today’s roofing materials offer an exciting array of features, especially when it comes to durability. Here’s more about some of the most popular roofing materials and their benefits.

  • Asphalt shingles. If price is your main concern, asphalt shingles are a great choice because they’re cost-effective to install and maintain. Depending on the grade, various brands of shingles can last from 15 to 30+ years. Multiple layers and subtle color shading can give this type of material added strength and impressive dimension.
  • Metal. A relative newcomer to the roofing material market, metal roofing is durable and resistant to nearly anything Mother Nature can throw at it for at least 50 years. Initial installation will cost more than asphalt shingles, but it can also help to reduce utility costs. Metal roofing can be manufactured with reflective coating that keeps a home warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
  • Wood shingles or shakes. Though they cost considerably more and require more maintenance than asphalt shingles, wood shingles or shakes do have a longer lifespan by five to 10 years. They’re an environmentally friendly choice because they originate from a renewable resource and are also biodegradable once removed.
