AddThis Social Bookmark Button

For homeowners, a new roof can be both a major home improvement and increase the curbside value of any home, as a typical shingle roof should last at minimum forty years and are the easiest to repair.

Homeowners often choose asphalt shingles for their roofing material despite how much more beneficial other materials such as metal can be. These reasons to invest in a high-quality roof material will break down exactly why that is.

It Gives Your Home a Unique Look

Due to the popularity of asphalt shingles, investing in a metal roof provides homeowners with a way to boost their curb appeal in a unique, stylish way. If a homeowner wants to have the practical benefits of metal roofing while maintaining the look of shingles, metal shingles are available to meet that demand. For something a bit more modern and eye-catching, consider investing in a standing seam metal roofing system.

Homeowners can find these roofs in a variety of colors, whether they want a neutral shade (gray, black, et cetera) or something a bit brighter, such as red or green. Slate is another high-quality form of roofing material that looks great and comes in a variety of colors, though it's a heavier material than metal roofing.

It Can Virtually Delete Maintenance Needs

Metal roofing in particular has a reputation for being incredibly easy to maintain. Asphalt shingles can fall victim to a number of issues, such as shingles falling off, debris getting stuck, moisture damage, and scratches.

With a high-quality metal roof, homeowners won't have to worry about making repairs anytime soon. In fact, some companies sell "lifetime roofs," meaning the homeowners won't have to inspect, fix, or replace the roof for as long as they own the property.

To put it simply, high-quality roofing gives homeowners the opportunity to worry about one less form of home maintenance each year. That said, take the time to understand the right questions to ask a roof contractor in order to know whether or not they're reputable enough to deliver the above promises.

It Removes the Frustration of Constant Re-Roofing

Dimensional asphalt shingles, a more durable product, come with a 50-year warranty. Product warranties don't cover labor. With product warranties, only the material itself can be replaced.

Metal and slate roofing, on the other hand, can last up to 100 years without requiring repairs or replacement. Reputable roofing companies can promise the aforementioned lifetime roof for this reason.

These reasons to invest in a high-quality roof are convincing enough, but they aren't the only attributes a high-quality roof will offer homeowners. For instance, homeowners who like to lead greener lifestyles will appreciate that most metal roofing is almost entirely constructed out of recycled materials.

There are many durable and long-lasting roofing option for homeowners include high-quality metal or slate roofing, Spanish tile, Shingles and Asphalt. For homeowners, roofing is the crown on their most valued possession.

Moreover, roofing will increase both the sale value and curbside appeal. Weighing all the factors, researching materials, determining any long-term plans for sale, before choosing the roofing material will lead to decades of worry-free living.

Whichever form of high-quality roofing a homeowner ultimately chooses, they'll see just how wide the benefits of these systems can truly reach.
