Choosing A Roofing Material For Your Home Upgrades

When you are moving up in the world, you want to make sure that your home reflects your change in station and you can enjoy all that your hard work can offer you. As such, you may be looking to upgrade your home. If you are looking to replace or redo your roof as a part of your home renovation project, get to know some of the roofing material options available to you that will help you make your dreams of an upgrade a reality.

Slate Roofing

Slate is one of the best materials that you can choose for your roofing upgrade. It is extremely durable and tough while also being extremely stylish and chic. Slate tiles are perhaps the most aesthetically appealing roofing materials around. They come in a variety of shapes and colors so that you can find a slate tile that matches your home's style and décor.

This type of roofing material is also incredibly durable, more so than the asphalt shingles that most standard or average roofs use. Because slate is a natural type of stone, it is designed by nature to withstand the natural elements like wind, rain, sleet, and the like. This makes it an ideal material to protect your home as your roof.

The slate tiles are also fireproof (though the roof as a whole is considered fire resistant because the underlying materials are only fire-resistant). This combination of aesthetic appeal and strength makes slate one f your best roofing upgrade options.

Clay or Concrete Tile Roofing

If you love homes with a Mediterranean or beachy style, you may want to consider upgrading your home's roofing to a clay or concrete tile material. These roofs come in many different colors from all natural beiges and brown, to bright and vibrant red clay coloring. Green, black, and yellow are also options when it comes to tile roofing.

In addition to these style options, clay and concrete tiles are also resistant to rot, insect infestations, and fire. This makes them highly durable. Clay may not be ideal in a climate in which the weather gets extremely cold in the winter, however. It may crack or suffer other damage during the cold months and need to go through extensive repairs or even a replacement when winter is through. 

Now that you know a few of the best roofing materials for your roof upgrades, you can be sure that you make the best selection for you and your home. Then, you can call your roofing contractor and have your new and improved roof installed before you know it.
