There are a lot of tedious decisions to be made when building or remodeling a home. One of the most important choices to make is what type of roofing system would be best. Our team at Accurate Renovation has seen how overwhelming picking and purchasing a new roof can be!
Believe it or not, a roof serves more purpose than providing protection from outside elements. It plays a major role in defining the overall look of a home, provides additional living space, and can make a home more energy-efficient and weatherproof. Along with the architecture, recommended roofing material changes depending on the region too.
3 of the most common types of roofs found on a Raleigh home are:
- Shingle Roofing: Asphalt shingle roofs are available in a variety of colors and styles. They are the most prevalent in Raleigh, providing a great look at an affordable price. Shingles have come a long way over the years. Repairs for shingles are generally inexpensive since they can be replaced individually.
- Metal Roofing: Opting for metal roofing can be quite beneficial as it provides long-term durability and energy efficiency. Metal roofing requires a higher upfront investment, but it’s lifespan far exceeds traditional shingles. This type of slick surface is great for maximizing the shedding of rain and snow, preventing build-up. Not to mention, metal roofing material is completely recyclable, making it Eco-Friendly.
- Flat Roofing: Flat roofing is becoming more popular in Raleigh’s commercial and residential structures. A flat roof makes roof maintenance and gutter cleaning much easier. Access to this type of roof is much easier, providing added space not only in the house but outside too. Say “goodbye” to dramatic sloping roofs.
As we have discussed, each type of roofing has its benefits. Regardless of what type of material a roof is made of, all roofs need to be inspected regularly. Routine inspections and maintenance keep a roof in good condition with a longer lifespan.
