  • Opening Intro -

    Apart from significant home projects such as kitchen remodeling or bathroom renovation, new roof installation is one of the major and costly home repairs that homeowners have to handle.


The decision to replace your old roof comes after a series of disappointments and having to deal with constant leaks. Also, it may be quite risky living in a home with compromised roof integrity.

When choosing a suitable roofing material, it all comes down to expense and quality. Good-quality roofing material equates to durability, a very vital aspect that ensures you don’t replace your roofing after a short time interval. There are various roofing options in the market, and it depends on what you want and your budget.

Before installing a new roof:

  • Consider the regional weather conditions and go for a roofing material that can handle unfavorable weather.
  • Consider the overall design of your home and go for roofing that complements your architectural design.
  • Determine whether there are any maintenance practices required on the roof and choose a material that offers low maintenance.

That said, here are some roofing materials that you may put into consideration.


Single-ply is useful for roofing on commercial houses and can also be used on your residential home. There are two types of single-ply roofing, namely thermoset and thermoplastic.

Thermoset combines a layer of synthetic rubbers while thermoplastic single-ply are hot welded in an overlapping manner and when they cool, they return to their normal state that forms a permanent bond. Thermoplastic single-ply roofing involves the use of reinforced fiberglass to provide extra strength.

Metal Roofing

If you’re looking for durability and longevity, then metal roofs could also be the solution. With proper installation, finishing, and effective maintenance, metal roofs will still look good without fading.

Metal roofs also offer excellent resistance to corrosion from dust and other elements. With metal roof replacements, it means you will enjoy a long time in your home without dealing with a single leak.

Standing Seam Roofing

Standing seam roofs are made from large steel panels with seams per panel that stand vertically. This roof type offers a better design with a more finished appearance and better durability than traditional metal roofing. You can choose to work with galvanized steel, aluminum, or copper as the materials for this type of roof.

They can offer a lifespan of up to 50 years, depending on whether you carry out regular checkups on the sealants and fasteners. Check for any bent panels, as this ensures that your roof integrity isn’t compromised and leads to hefty repairs.
