Roofing Options to Consider for Your Re-Roofing Project

Upgrading your roof is something you will likely have to do at some point to maintain the quality and overall structure of your home. There are many roofing options to choose from, each with their own list of benefits and maintenance needs. Explore clay and cement tile, wood shakes, and metal roofing to see which type of material will work best for your re-roofing project.

Clay Tile

Clay tile is an attractive material that has a functional use and can add greater curb appeal to your home. Clay tiles come in a variety of hues, including red, tan, gray, and even black. This durable tile is long-lasting and requires little maintenance. If you are looking for a permanent roofing material for your home that will not need replacing anytime soon, clay is an excellent choice as it can last up to 100 years.

Cement Tile

If you still want the beautiful allure of clay tile without the cost, then cement tile is an excellent choice as well. Cement tile is 30% cheaper than clay tile and is a beautiful alternative. Cement tile has an impressive lifespan of 50 years or longer.

Cement tile can be custom-dyed to match a color preference. Also, cement tile can be stamped with decorative custom designs but without the heftier costs. Since you can have cement tile mimic wood or stone you’ll never have to sacrifice your design aesthetic.

Cedar Shakes

Cedar shakes add a classic, cozy element to your home, and are a great option for your re-roofing project. Cedar shakes (and shingles) are lightweight so they won't weight your roof down. Cedar also comes in a variety of hues, from a rich red to a soft golden color, so you can choose which color works best for your home's design.

These shingles are very durable in all kinds of weather and easy to maintain. As a bonus, cedar is a natural insulating material, which means it will help keep your house warm in the winter and cooler in the summer. This can help reduce energy costs in the home. You can expect this roofing material to last upwards of 30 years.

Metal Roofing

Fabricated metal roofing allows for you to have a streamlined, smooth roof that is appealing and makes your home look more modern. There are a variety of metal colors, like brown, tan, navy and hunter green. You can pick the best one for your re-roofing project.

Metal roofing is very fire resistant, making it one of the safest roofing options for your home. It is also very durable in high winds and heavy snowfall and is able to last upwards of 50 years. You'd also be surprised by how quiet this roofing material is during rainfall, making it an ideal choice for even a basic build. Talk to your roofing contractor to see if metal roofing is the best option for your re-roofing project.

Never attempt to build a new roof or repair your current roof on your own. It's best to hire a professional roofer to do the job so you can have long-lasting results that are attractive and functional.

It’s important to remember the cost to redo your roof when deciding which material to use. Custom tiles shake, or even metal materials will cost more than standard or stock versions of the same material. Your roofing contractor can work with your budget to help you decide which type of roofing material you need for your home.
