One of the more difficult decisions you have to make as a home owner is what is the best roofing material for your home. The advantages and disadvantages should be carefully weighed when considering which roofing material best fits your needs. A 3-tab shingle is the most cost effective route, but it will certainly not have the aesthetics of some materials or last 40-50 years in Fort Worth! It would do well to last 20 years. However, the upfront cost of a synthetic slate tile roof may not make sense if you plan to move in the next year.
The choice can be very challenging because there are so many roofing material options on the market. It is important to choose the right material that fits your needs and your families’ budget.
Major factors to consider for your roof material choice.
- Overall Cost
- Overall Lifespan / Durability
- Added Aesthetics
- Homeowners Insurance Saving
- Increased Equity
- Increased Safety
- How long you plan to live in the home
- Energy Savings
These are just a few and all factors must be considered. The longer your roof lasts, and the more energy it helps you save, the greater the long-term value it will deliver.
