WARNING: Not all roofing solutions are created equal… and don't let anybody tell you different.
Talk to any roofing company in St. Charles, or walk into any big-box retailer to see just how many roofing materials there really are. For example, one major home improvement chain has more than 35 asphalt shingles, 36 architectural shingles, and 30 composite roofing materials to choose from.
The problem is that many roofing companies like to carry only one specific product (the one that’s going to make them the most money). You also have to realize that carrying only one product line allows them to buy in bulk for additional profits and it saves them on inventory costs.
What Is the Right Aluminum Roofing Solution?
That depends, as no one product or material is right for every single home. For example, from an aesthetic standpoint, natural cedar wood is a great choice. It's beautiful, and lasts for years if you take advantage of our preventative maintenance. But that’s the tradeoff; you have to spend the time, energy, and money to perform the maintenance.
Of course, some homeowners have the money to pay someone else to do it and that's great. Cedar is perfect for them. If you don’t have the time or want to spend the money on constant upkeep, though, you’re better off going with a low-maintenance option like metal roofing. For St. Paul homeowners, it all depends on what they want from their roofs.
You also have to take into account the age of your roof, the amount of weight it can support, the pitch angle, the underlayment, and about 12 other things. Each one of those aspects will dictate the type of material you should use. If choosing a material wasn't hard enough, you also have to take into consideration all of the different aspects of your roof.
Affordable Options That Fit Your Needs
As you can see, choosing the right material for your home can be an involved process. To help you get started in the right direction, here is a breakdown of some of your choices. You’ll notice that every option of roofing material has its own advantages. For example, metal roofs last a long time, but the initial costs are a little higher than, say, slate roofing. That’s why it takes a roofing expert to sit down with you and to explain your options.
Unfortunately, most roofers will just show up and try to sell you on the one product they carry. They don’t take the time to discuss your options, the type of roof you have, or any aesthetic considerations you may have. Whether you have a metal, slate, or an architectural roof, you need alternative options. In short, beware any roofing company that only carries one type of product.
Don't let a roofing contractor sell you something you don't need. Remember: At this company we never sell you on a product, we educate you on a solution. Call our siding repair service today to discuss your situation; we’d be honored to give you any advice and help that we can.
