The age old question that any home owner will ask themselves is this, “Do I go with Shingles or Metal on my new roof?” The answer will differ from one person to the next, however the type of roof that is chosen should reflect the goals that you have in place for your home. Some people will look to own their home for short period of time, and others will look to build the home of their dreams. The difference in home ownership should dictate the type of roofing system you install.
In recent years we have seen metal roofing requests, projects, and even new manufacturers, rise to new heights. Why has this happened you ask? Simple, metal roofing is the way to go!
A new metal roof offers your home numerous benefits over traditional shingles or cedar shakes, which includes a longer life span of material, durability against weather, fire resistant, reflects the sun’s heat, and has even become comparable in price to traditional shingles.
I am asked the same question almost on a daily basis. Which type of shingles do you recommend? This question used to be complicated, however today it is very straight forward, and the answer is Fiberglass Shingles. With the evolution of shingles over the years, which included the use of asphalt 3 tab shingles, organic shingles and asphalt architectural shingles, the shingle manufacturers of the country have finally got it.
