There’s a reason why the phrase “a roof over your head” has attained such common usage—roofs are a fundamental part of the home, and it’s impossible to go without one. Roofs affect the whole home, from its structural integrity to its sale price. And because they’re so important, roof repair and new roof installation work needs to be handled by an experienced and vetted roofing company.
It’s a good idea to know a little bit about roofs, even if you’ve already hired a quality roofing contractor. This is especially true if you are considering a whole new style of roof to replace your home’s existing one. If you have a flat roof and wish to remodel and change it to a steep-slope style, you should talk to your roofing contractor and come up with a solid plan of attack.
Shingles are another important element of new roof installation and repair. Whether your roof currently has slate, asphalt, or wood shake shingles, knowing the advantages and drawbacks to all shingle options is essential.
