Different roofing materials provide different benefits, so you need to learn how to prioritize the ones you want most. You need to carefully consider factors like durability, aesthetics, and cost-efficiency before making your choice. Fortunately, AIC Roofing and Construction is here to help. As the leading roofing company in our area, we’ve helped countless homeowners with their roofs. Here are our tips for choosing the right material:
- Consider Your Home’s Architectural Style – Your roof is one of the largest elements of your home’s exterior so it needs to match your home’s design and color scheme. For example, traditional homes look best with classic roof materials like slate and wood shake. Fortunately, we install designer asphalt shingles from GAF. These shingles can perfectly capture the look of slate and wood shake while still providing you with the benefits of asphalt shingles.
- Think in Terms of Lifecycle Costs – The lifecycle cost is the total cost to own a certain product. For roofing systems, this means the total cost of installing, repairing, maintaining, removing, and disposing of the roof material. Focus on materials that have a low lifecycle cost. For instance, our GAF shingles are affordable to install, repair, maintain, and remove. They are also recyclable, making disposal easy. This means that they have a low life cycle cost.
- Focus on Durability – Your roof’s primary purpose is to protect your interior from the effects of bad weather. Your choice of roof material needs to be able withstand anything from the local weather, such as strong winds, heavy rain, and long-term sun exposure. The asphalt shingles that we install are engineered for durability and performance. GAF’s Advanced Protection® Technology makes them stronger than ordinary shingles.
