Are you constructing a new home in Loveland? There are quite a few roofing options from which to choose. Each different material has its own characteristics and aesthetic appearance – it’s all about what you want from your roof.
Composition Asphalt Shingles
These are the traditional shingles you see on many residential homes in Loveland. These shingles are created with a compilation of fiberglass, asphalt, and other minerals to create the flexible, waterproof, sturdy shingles. These are easy to install and repair. Composition asphalt shingles are an affordable option that will still look great and perform as intended.
A metal roof is typically created from aluminum, copper, or steel. These give your home an industrial look and an industrial personality. Metal roofs last forever. Well, maybe not quite forever, but they last a very long time. These roofs are extremely waterproof but not soundproof! When it’s raining, you’ll be able to hear every drop – we like to think of it as free white noise. Also, during bad storms, metal roofs can sustain hail but not without damage. The good news is metal roofing is easy to repair and replace. Aluminum roofs are the most affordable of metal choices with copper as the most expensive.
Slate and Tile Roofs
If you’re looking for a roof that makes you and your neighbors say, “WOW!” then you want to consider slate or tile roofs. These sturdy tiles look natural as they are typically made from clay ceramic or cement. They are heavy, which means your roof will be protected but requires additional support so it doesn’t crash in on your home. Slate tile roofs can last as long as 100 years! These tiles are installed similarly to composition asphalt shingles, but since they are heavier, the installation process is slower. A roof of this quality is well worth the wait!
