So, you’ve decided is time to replace your roof -- One of the best investments you can make for your home. When done correctly, a roof replacement can add significant value to your home, improving its energy efficiency, durability, weather protection and beauty.
What’s next? You’ll need to research different roofing materials and choose the best option for your home; but most importantly, you also need to choose a knowledgeable and experienced contractor that can guarantee proper installation.
The team at Mesler Roofing and Exteriors has over 30 years of experience with premium materials and installation – Da Vinci Tile, asphalt composition, slate, tile, metal roofs, standing seam metal, concrete, polymer tile and wood.
Here are some things to consider:
METAL roofing has become a popular choice and a huge benefit is that it can last as long as 50 years when installed properly. On top of that, metal roofs are relatively easy to install and maintain.
SLATE can last anywhere from 75 to 200 years and it offers timeless elegance. Because it is quite heavy, your home might need an underlying roof structure to support the weight of the slate tiles. It is also a more costly choice.
TILE is one of the most durable, long-lasting and environmentally friendly roofing options available today. Made of concrete or clay, tile can last up to 100 years. It boasts excellent energy efficiency and is fire and weather resistant.
WOOD, although not as widely popular, still holds its appeal for its natural and rustic appeal. It needs to be treated to boost its resistance against moisture and insects, but it’s not only an eco-friendly alternative, but also offers great insulation.
