Things to Consider When You Need New Roof Shingles

There comes a point when your home needs new roofing shingles. Perhaps a contractor has told you it’s time, or maybe you’re building a new house. Whatever the case, when you need to choose new shingles, there are several considerations to keep in mind. Here are four questions to think about.

1. What appearance are you seeking? Do you want the look of wood or slate? Is natural wood a must for you? Do you want your roof to have a bold hue or a more neutral tone? Should your shingles be an eye-catching pattern or a more conventional shape?
2. How important is budget? Is staying within a budget and keeping costs down a high priority? Or are you okay with paying more for a premium line?
3. Are you looking for other features as well? Some shingles are made to be extra strong against wind and snow. Some shingles help guard against ultraviolet rays. Others are especially impact-resistant. Are there certain qualities you are seeking?
4. What roofing company should you choose? Roofing is a significant investment, so select your contractor carefully. Find out, do they offer a warranty on installation, in addition to manufacturer warranties? What is their rating on the Better Business Bureau website? How long have they served your area? Feel free to ask questions. A reputable roofer will be happy to answer.
