Different Types of Roofs
Different types of roofs are available, choosing the right type of roof material for your residential or commercial property can greatly improve its' longevity
A quick drive in your neighbourhood will have you noticing all kinds of roofs being used by your neighbours. It's often a surprise how much variety there is in the market, from metal, tiles and shingles, there's plenty to choose from and they all have their pros and cons. Unfortunately, there's no "one size fits all" option available, some houses are going to work better with shingles and some will be perfect for metal. Finding out which one is best for your home is the trick, there are so many different variables to consider before going ahead with your new roof that it can almost be overwhelming, and if you get bad advice you can end up with a very sub-optimal result. Kingston Roof Pros have been installing roofs long enough to know exactly which questions to ask, they can help you to make the right choice for your roof that suits your home perfectly.
The weather plays a big role in the roofing for your home, if your area suffers a lot from high sun exposure or strong winds, then you'll need to look at a more secure option like metal roofing, whereas milder weather areas can benefit from having shingles or tiles installed. The best thing before making a decision is to speak to our professional team, we can advise you on the best options for your home and discuss them with you so that you're confident with your new roofing.
If you're looking for a new, fresh metal roof and your home doesn't allow the access to have it installed properly, then you're either going to end up spending a lot of money getting the panels up to the roof or an alternative material will need to be chosen. This can be evaluated by simple site inspection, our pros can check how simple installation will be at your site and ensure the material you've chosen will be appropriate.
Depending on whether your roof is flat, gabled, or a number of other shapes will determine the type of material that will suit your roof best. The last thing you want is to be fitted with a material that doesn't look good on your home or leaves you at risk of leaks. Save yourself the trouble of having the wrong material on your home by speaking with the people in the know – Kingston Roofing and Repairs will take care of the hard work for you and evaluate your home to work out the best materials to suit your home.
Finally, the most important aspect when it comes to choosing your roof – the cost of the material and the installation. Metal roofs can tend to be more expensive than tiles or shingles, but last much longer and can handle more intense weather conditions. With proper measurements of your home, we can provide you with a tailor made quote to give you a clear idea of the costs involved with installing your chosen material.
