It’s Time for a New Roof: What Type Do You Need?

By fiderioandsons Feb 3, 2016




Every home is different so what type of roof do you need? With several roofing options available, it’s important to know what is best for you, which depends on the size and architectural style of your home, where it is located and your own sense of style. This article discusses three different roofing options that can benefit your CT home.

Asphalt Shingle Roofing

Asphalt shingles are an inexpensive option that seems to be a more popular choice for residential roofing. These shingles provide durable and versatile options for a strong roof with an appealing appearance.Asphalt shingles come in two different types such as organic and fiberglass.Made of either an organic paper fiber mat that is useful for cold weather and water resistance or fiberglass that is better for fire and moisture resistance. Asphalt shingles are widely popular due to the versatility in styles and colors as well as an easy and inexpensive installation process. The main disadvantage of asphalt shingles is that they are not resistant to extreme temperatures and wind, which can make the life span shorter than others.

Slate Roofing

Traditional slate roofing is one of the oldest roofing materials. Slate is both heavy and usually more expensive but provides strong and durable strength for both fire and wind resistance. Slate is made from natural materials making for an eco-friendly option that is used for steep sloped roofs. People desire this material for the long lasting integrity for the safety and security of your home. Although this type is expensive, when installed by professional contractors, your CT home will have an attractive and long lasting roof.

Metal Roofing

Designed to outlast the majority of available roofing systems, metal roofing is the most durable option for roofing. Commonly used in commercial roofing projects, metal roofing is now a viable option for residential properties as well. Water tight and fire resistant, metal roofing is built to last. The metal roofs may seem to be too heavy but they are actually lightweight and both fire and wind resistant. The price ranges a little more expensive than asphalt but inexpensive compared to slate roofing. Metal roofing is stronger than asphalt but does not have the variety of styles and colors that asphalt shingle roofing does.
