What Type of Roof is Best?
If you’re doing your research on the different types of roofing materials that New England homeowners commonly choose, you’re probably feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the options available. The local climate can be harsh, especially during the winter months, so it’s important that you select a roof that will be able to withstand anything Mother Nature throws its way.
In addition to protection against the elements, there are several other important factors to consider, including:
- Long-term durability
- Energy efficiency
- Curb appeal
Choosing the Right Roof for Your Home
The roofing materials that are most popular among local homeowners are asphalt shingles, metal, slate, and clay tiles. Each material offers its own specific advantages, but it’s hard to beat the combination of affordability, durability, thermal performance, and curb appeal offered by asphalt shingles. Available in a wide array of styles and colors, asphalt roofing shingles offer decades of reliable protection against leaks and blow-offs and are able to withstand strong winds and hailstorms. They are also near the top of the list in terms of aesthetic appeal, as you can select from an array of dimensional shingles that are layered to provide greater thickness and depth.
