What To Consider When Choosing A New Roof Material
Whether your roof is beyond repair or you’re in the market for a new roof, selecting the best material to meet your needs can seem quite the challenge. With such a wide variety of options on the market, boasting different selling points and prices, we’ve discussed below a few key things you should consider, to make it easier for you.
Replacing a roof is always going to be costly and is likely to be the case regardless of the material. Naturally, some materials are going to be more expensive than others at which point, it would be important to weigh up the pros and cons. So we’d recommend establishing the initial cost of materials and installation but also what maintenance and repairs may set you back in the future.
As your roof is on the exterior, it is obviously exposed to all the elements all year round, which means this is a key factor in what kind of material you will choose. In 2019, the UK recorded 164.4 rainy days, which is an increase in 2018, this suggests you’d need to choose a material with strong water-resistant qualities. Strong gale force winds are also something to consider within your area.
Maintenance & Repairs
Even though we mentioned this earlier, it is an important factor to consider when choosing your next roof. Discuss if it will require any day to day or any regular maintenance, whether it can be performed by any qualified contractor or if it will need a specialist?
Although breaks and repairs are unpredictable, it is important to consider how much any spontaneous breaks can set you back.
Last but by no means least, the aesthetics! The exterior of your home is the first visual you and any visitors will see and so this should be taken into consideration too. There is an abundance of design and colour options available to increase the kerbside appeal of your property.
