Because Choosing A New Roof Is A Big Decision…

There Is United Roofing & Remodeling In Minnesota

Which Roof Is Best For You?

Choosing a new roof is a big decision.  It can be one of the biggest expenses encountered by homeowners.  It is also one of the most important decisions to make as well.  Your roof keeps the weather out of your house and away from your family and possessions.  It truly is one of the most important parts of your home.

There are many great choices for roof coverings.  Here are some of the most popular choices:

Asphalt Shingles: The most popular choice of roof coverings.  Even with increases in asphalt prices the past couple of years, asphalt and fiberglass based shingles are still your most economical roof covering.  30 year architectural or laminated shingles are a great choice.  Heavy weight asphalt shingles are also available in many styles and colors with 50 year or lifetime warranties.

Metal: Metal roofs are gaining in popularity.  Standing seam metal roofs are a classic look and style.  Corrugated panels are also available as an economical alternative.  Metal shingles or metal panels stamped and covered with granules to look like shingles, slate, terra cotta and shake are also becoming more available.  Most metal roof coverings are 100% recyclable.

Slate: Slate is a classic material that can last 100 years or more depending on the slate.  It is a heavy material and your roof needs to be designed to support the weight.  With a well designed roof and deck, a slate roof will last well into the next generation or two and look great.

Wood Shake: Another classic style, but it does not have the longevity of other materials.  If installed improperly and with low quality shakes, it may need replacement within 10 to 15 years.  Do you research and choose your contractor wisely when installing a shake roof.

Concrete Tiles: Tiles can come in terra cotta style tiles and flat tiles that look like slate and shakes.  Very durable and heavy like natural slate.  You will need to take the same precautions to make sure your roof can support the material.
