The Top Roofing Material Of 2021

The Top Roofing Material Of 2021
April 9, 2021

A new roof can transform your home in a variety of ways. It adds curb appeal, value, and protects what is underneath: you, your family, and your belongings. When deciding on the roofing that is best for your home, you have so many options from which to choose. There is asphalt shingle, wood, clay tile, concrete tile, green roofing, steel, slate, and metal. All of those are excellent choices, but one of them stands out for 2021. The winner is the asphalt shingle.

The Affordable Choice

The cost for 100 square feet of shingles (which is called one square of asphalt) including installation can range from $80 to $500 or slightly more. The average price for metal roofing is around double that. Concrete tiles, clay tiles, slate cost significantly more than asphalt shingles.

Color Choices Abound

You have many color options to complement the exterior of your home. This is because the color spectrum for asphalt shingles is wider now than it has ever been. In addition to black, red, brown, and gray, other colors may match your personal tastes. Consider blue, green, white, beige, and all the hues in between.

Excellent for a Variety of Architectural Styles

Many architectural styles are appropriate for asphalt shingles. Traditional suburban, Mediterranean, Spanish, ranch, modern, and contemporary are a few examples. Today, asphalt shingles are available in designs and textures that resemble clay tiles and other types of roofing.

Durability You Can Count On

If properly cared for, asphalt shingles last 20 years at a minimum with a maximum of 25 years. You will pay at least twice as much for other tiles such as clay, concrete, or metal. As you can see, with asphalt shingles you can get a quality roof for a reasonable price.

Why a Professional Roof Installer is Better than DIY

Hiring a certified roofer is preferred to a do-it-yourself (DIY) job. This is because the roofing contractor has connections to roofing material dealers. The company also has the expertise to get it right the first time, on schedule, and within budget.
