Over the course of many years, your roof may eventually break down, spring leaks, lose shingles or tiles. Even though these sound like minor problems, if you hold off on repairing them for long enough they can turn into big problems. It’s when you can see visible holes or sagging, crooked gutters that you should think about roof replacement.
Roofs can be constructed out of a number of materials to complement your home: wood shingles, gravel, slate, or ceramic tile. Each material has its advantages and disadvantages in terms of insulation, durability, lifespan and cost. Depending on the area in which you live, pick one that suits the climate, weather conditions and the style of your home. Siding is a sound investment for your home allowing for a maintenance-free exterior that will resist weather, termites and the test of time.
Siding can last 20 to 25 years, so it’s as good an investment as wood or any other building material, which may become vulnerable as the house ages. Siding will not split, rot or fall victim to termites. Roofing costs vary with the material used and the size and pitch of your roof, so find a qualified contractor to give you an estimate.
