If your roof is reaching it’s 20 year mark, it’s time to consider a roof replacement. Did you know that standard asphalt shingles are not the only option you have? When thinking about your roof replacement, keep in mind that various different shingles will make a difference in the lifespan and appearance of your roof. Roofing materials can even make a difference in the overall value of your home, if you may sell at any point.
CHOOSING MATERIALS FOR YOUR HOUSTON ROOF REPLACEMENT
Every roofing material will have different benefits and drawbacks. The standard material used for roofing is the asphalt shingle. Asphalt shingles are a great place to start, and have an average lifespan of around 20 years. This is why the standard figure for roof replacements is around every 20 years. However, there are other options for your roofing materials. If you are looking for something more long-lasting, consider architectural shingles. These durable and beautiful shingles have longer life spans than their asphalt counterparts, and can add value to your home due to their desirable appearance.
TRADITIONAL SHINGLES, OR A ROOF REPLACEMENT UPGRADE?
Our traditional shingles are of the highest quality, and we guarantee their ability to withstand the test of time. Architectural shingles like cedar and slate are also a great option for upgraded appearance and longevity. So how do you choose between the two? Each has benefits and drawbacks. Traditional shingles have a shorter lifespan, but are more affordable than architectural shingles. Although architectural shingles are pricier, their ability to last 30, 40, or even 50 years is a major perk for many homeowners. They are also visually desirable for homes looking for a face-lift.
