Quality comes at a price, no matter what you need. However, quality roofing offers benefits that make quality matter. You’ll find that a quality brand of shingles comes with a better warranty and durability. Quality tile fades less and better protects your home. Quality metal roofing keeps its color longer and resists rust better than cheap metal roofing.
We understand that few homeowners replace their roofs more than once and because of that, understanding the differences in roofing materials can be a lot. Here are some general things that will help you find the right quality roofing, both brand and material for your home.
There are two general classifications of asphalt shingles; 3-tab and architectural shingles. Although both will protect your home, architectural shingles are of better quality. They’re thicker and most brands offer a longer warranty than 3-tab. In addition, you’ll find that many architectural shingles include stain, impact and wind resistance as part of their guarantee.
Whether you want clay or concrete tile roofing, choosing a brand with a long local history matters. These companies understand how wind and the relentless Florida sun can impact their products. When you choose a tile that’s meant for Florida, it will look better and last longer.
As metal roofing grows in popularity, more metal fabricators are getting into the business. Just because they can make ductwork for your home and do that well, doesn’t mean they should be making your roofing too. If you’re going to choose a metal roof, choose a metal roofing manufacturer who specializes in roofing.
Most of All, Choose an Experienced Roofing Company
No matter how high the quality roofing you choose, it won’t look good or last if you don’t choose an experienced roofing company. Make sure the roofing company you choose is experienced in both the material and brand you’re considering. For example, if you want GAF shingles, choose a GAF Master Elite® Contractor. Not only will GAF then back the product, but they’ll also back the installation assuming you choose the Golden Pledge® warranty.
