The Best Roofing Options For 2022

The roof is one of the most important features of a home. It maintains the structure, keeps the house warm, and offers protection from the elements. When a home goes on the market, the status of its roof is a big talking point. Years ago, there were very few options for materials to use for a new roof job. Today, there are countless types of roofing materials to choose from. We’ve outlined some of the most popular options to consider when you need to replace your roof. 

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is an excellent option for those looking for a durable choice. Lasting about 60 years, metal roofing can come in shingles, vertical panels, and metal shakes. Metal roofing is very stable when protecting your home from the elements. Depending on the style you choose, metal roofing is an affordable option but may eventually begin to show its age and impact the look of your home.

Solar Tiles

A solar tile roof is an excellent option if you’re looking to increase your home’s energy efficiency, another big selling point when it comes to selling a home. Solar tiles absorb solar energy and help convert it into power. This option is perfect for homes in locations that get a lot of sun but are fragile and cost much more than the typical solar panel installation.

Slate Roofing

Slate roofing is long-lasting and resistant to different types of mold and fungus. This option is very aesthetically pleasing, but be wary of its weight, which not all homes will be able to support. Slate roofing is also difficult to repair and more expensive than other roofing options. 

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles are a popular option across America because they are affordable, easily installed, and easily repaired. Unfortunately, these shingles can last about 30 years but are not very durable past that. 

Clay Roofing

Clay roofing is one of the most durable options on the market. It’s known to withstand damage from high winds, tornadoes, and hurricanes. It’s specially molded and works well in warm climates, and you won’t find yourself having to maintain them often since they don’t absorb moisture easily. The main drawback to clay tiles is the high cost, which is worth it to some homeowners since the material can last 50+ years.

Green Roofing

Green roofs are an excellent option for those willing to maintain them. They are covered in plants and helpful in home insulation, improving air quality, and reducing water runoff. Essentially a garden, this option requires lots of maintenance to care for the plants, extra structural support, and water filtration. Green roofs are great for the environment and stylish but have an estimated lifespan of about 40 years.  

Conclusion

The options available when choosing a roof can be overwhelming. Your home, budget, and climate are all important factors to consider when you decide to replace your roof. Have questions about your next roof replacement? Contact us today; we’d be happy to help!
