Your roof is the essential part of your home—it protects the house from sun, rain, and other harsh elements from the outside. Whether you are building from scratch or just re-roofing, it is important to know which material is the best for the style of your home, the climate and environment, and your budget. After all, it’s a big investment and you don’t want to find yourself going through this again in the next few years.

Make sure to buy the right material and let this list guide you:

Asphalt Composition Shingles

This type is one of the most commonly used because it is very economical. Asphalt shingles are also durable and easy to install. These come in a wide variety of colors and styles that can work with many architectural styles, especially traditional suburban styles. Depending on the quality of the materials and maintenance, this type usually last up to 30 years. Asphalt shingles look great on American-style or country-style homes (see main photo).

Slate Roofing

Although one of the most expensive types of roofing, slates are durable and can offer a lot of beauty and elegance to your exterior. This type comes in a variety of colors and styles and also need little maintenance. Light and earth-colored slates also help in reducing the heat absorbed by your space due to its natural reflective properties—making it perfect for homes located in areas with warmer climate. Slate roofing looks amazing on tropical-style or resort homes. There is a synthetic, but almost-realistic-looking slate tile available locally from Bryan Isaiah Trading.
