What Kind of Shingles Should I Choose?
There are several replacement roofing materials available today. Choose from:
- Traditional asphalt shingles (3-tab)
- Asphalt shingles for architectural use
- Wood shingle
- Slate tiles
- Composition (manufactured) slate tiles
- Ceramic (Spanish) tiles
These options offer distinct benefits and drawbacks in terms of cost, appearance, fire-retardant properties, weight, and life span, so be sure to discuss roofing materials with your local roofing contractor thoroughly. They’ll be able to recommend specific materials suited to your home, needs, and climate. The size and pitch of your roof will also impact the cost of replacement, so be sure to keep that in mind when evaluating the cost-benefit of different roofing options.
Once you’ve decided to replace your roof, you’ll need to find a qualified roofing contractor in your area. Be sure you pick a reputable roofer, as correct installation directly impacts the performance of your roof. We recommend selecting a roofer with experience, positive reviews from past customers, and a total labour warranty to ensure the best possible roof replacement experience and a roof that will last for years.
