So it’s time to renovate your roof, and you want it done right. Using eco-friendly materials that last a long time and are excellent at protecting your home or business location will ensure you get the most for your money.
Let’s discuss some roofing materials on the market today and why we think they’re the best for you!
Which Roofing Materials Will Give Me The Best ROI And The Best Protection?
One of the most significant considerations for a home or business owner who is planning a renovation is going to be the cost. Another is quality. Keep reading to learn more about available roofing materials and how they satisfy those concerns:
- Asphalt roofing is the most popular material because of its vast availability and affordability. An asphalt roof can last 10 – 35 years and is the least expensive option. Asphalt shingles are not the most eco-friendly roofing choice, as they’re made from a petroleum-based material. Asphalt retains heat more than any other roofing material, making your home less energy efficient. On a positive note, asphalt shingles are recyclable, and many roofing companies will recycle old shingles for you.
- Wood shingles are 100% natural and typically made of fire-resistant wood, such as cedar, redwood, or southern pine. This type of roofing will last for 25 to 30 years. It is relatively inexpensive, biodegradable, renewable, and recyclable, making it one of the more sustainable roofing materials. Make sure you’re buying responsibly sourced wood and not supporting illegal deforestation.
- Both concrete and clay roofs are durable and long-lasting, but they’re also heavier, requiring strong roofing reinforcements. These roofing materials are durable, able to withstand harsh weather conditions, long-lasting, and energy-efficient. You can expect a clay or concrete roof to last 50 to 100 years, but they are also more expensive than many roofing materials.
