What is your goal for your new roof? Is your goal to pick a roof that is pleasing to the eye, finding something that is appealing to your neighbors and that accents your home? Or is your goal to find something stable, secure; something that you don’t have to worry about ever again and you can leave your kids to deal with it 30 years after you pass away? Perhaps your goal is to simply get the cheapest roofing materials possible. Whatever your goal is, the Charlotte Roofing Team has the solution.
Pleasing to the eye: There are some amazingly beautiful options to consider when you stop thinking in terms of money and start thinking in terms of aesthetic appeal. But…that is the biggest problem with beauty, it often costs a lot of money. Clay and concrete tiles can appear castle like, giving your home a safe, secure look, but also a look of class and elegance. Slate and Synthetic slate roofs are unique. Not many people have them; again, because of the money. But they are the kind of materials that you don’t have to worry about again. They can remind people of old cobble stone streets in Europe. They are a kind of modern roof with a touch of history ingrained in them. Metal roofs, although they sound terrible (I mean, metal…come on), can actually add just the right accent to certain types of houses.
The kinds of roofs that are secure and long term are generally fairly expensive as well, but not as expensive as some of those mentioned above. Certain tile roofs offer the kind of lasting roof that many people are looking for but it is important to check the local Charlotte roofing supplies stores to see if these are within your budget. There are also rubber roofs. And no, I’m not talking about the kind of rubber your kitchen utensils are made of. Rubber roofs are capable of long term performance, but not when there’s probability of high amounts of rain and snow in your area. Metal tiles and metal shingles not only look good, but they last a very long time. The good thing about these buggers is that they also have a long warranty. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes as well so that you can try to get the best beauty, as well as the best quality.
If cost is an issue, there are options for you. Let me first suggest that as far as roofing materials are concerned, stay away from the roll out, gravel roofs. They just don’t provide happiness! Think asphalt shingles. They are common, they are good enough looking, and they resist just about anything. They are fire resistant, hold snow on top of them, are waterproof…in other words they’re not going to send you back to the roofing company to spend more money in just a years time. They’ll last you 15-30 years and will provide you a great deal of satisfaction in the meantime.
