How to choose the right ROOFING MATERIALS

Playing a key role in your family and property’s safety, your roof is as important as the foundation of your home. Choosing the right roofing materials is crucial so your roof can withstand the test of time, save energy, enhance your home’s curb appeal, and fit your budget.


The wide range of options available makes it more challenging to select the best one for your home. However, there are important factors to keep in mind when selecting the right material:

1. How much you want to spend

Your budget will be a huge factor, as some materials come with a hefty price tag. The brand, quality, and cost of production come into play. Long-lasting, high-quality materials will also cost more than low-quality ones.


For example, an asphalt roof is relatively inexpensive but it has a shorter lifespan, compared to a metal roof system that can last for up to 70 years but is more expensive.  

2. Longevity of the material

Some materials last for only a decade, while others last much longer. So don’t forget to check the lifespan of the roofing material you’re considering. It makes sense to invest in long-lasting materials, such as metal, slate, or tile, if you plan to stay in your home. The upfront costs will be relatively higher, but the materials will last a long time.

3. Long-term maintenance

A new roofing system is a serious commitment that can last for decades. Some materials have relatively higher maintenance costs, so it’s important to consider the amount of money required to maintain the roofing material of your choice.

4. Energy efficiency

With an energy-efficient roof, the sun’s rays are reflected instead of being absorbed into the interior of your home. This helps reduce energy usage and costs.


If your roof doesn’t reflect heat, it may put a huge strain on your AC, leading to a noticeable spike in your monthly energy bills.

5. Climatic condition

Some materials are better suited for hotter climates, while others are recommended if you live in a colder area.

If it rains a lot where you live, or if you’re residing in an area that’s often hit by natural disasters, your roof should be able to withstand heavy rains to avoid roof damage.
