When you’re ready to replace the roof on your Powell, OH, home, you can choose from an expansive range of roofing materials. With asphalt shingle roofs easily ranking as the top choice in the nation, there’s good reason to explore their benefits. However, there are also attractive and high-functioning composite, metal, and wood shingle roofs to consider as well. The following are several options for roofing materials, along with a quick look at their benefits and drawbacks.
Asphalt Shingle Roofs
Asphalt shingles have the lowest upfront cost of all residential roofing types. This roofing product typically lasts between 15 and 30 years, and it is both easy to install and easy to replace. Asphalt shingles are also available in a diverse range of colors and styles to perfectly complement the design aesthetics of your home. However, compared to more costly roofing types, they aren’t the most weather- and mold-resistant or the most energy-efficient.
Slightly more costly than asphalt shingles, composite shingles look similar to natural slate. Best of all, they’re long-lasting. Composite shingle roofs have an average lifespan of 40 to 50 years. They also provide high levels of moisture and mold resistance when compared to asphalt shingle roofs.
Wood roofs are highly efficient and promote ongoing energy savings. Wood roofs hold up well under both strong winds and forceful impacts, and they last between 15 and 30 years. On the downside, these roofs lack the fire resistance of other roofing materials. They’re also much more susceptible to moisture damage than their alternatives.
You can add value to your home by having a stunning, metal roof installed. Although pricey, these roofs gradually develop gorgeous patinas over time. The aging process only makes them look better. Whether constructed as standing-seam or screw-down panel systems, metal roofs are incredibly resilient. Depending upon which metal you choose, an all-metal roof could last between 40 and 100 years. The drawbacks of metal roofing include the potential for inconsistencies in color, rapid, expansion-related wear of roof fasteners, and increased roof noise.
