Choosing Roofing & Siding Materials

logo

There are many important aspects to the safety and longevity of a house that will be affected by the roof and the way it is treated. One such aspect of your roof that can have a huge impact is the quality of your gutters. A poor quality gutters system can lead to water accumulation in your attic and on your roof, leading to leaks and even possible damage to your home. While there are a number of different roofing materials and styles available, the most commonly used ones are vinyl siding and slate roofing, with aluminum / tile roofs becoming increasingly popular in recent years.

Vinyl siding is a great roofing material if you are looking for a cheap option and can provide a very practical and attractive solution if you want a flat roof without the unsightly slopes. Vinyl roofing also provides a great low-maintenance solution and is also relatively long lasting – especially if you choose a style that offers some sort of insulation. Vinyl roofing also has a number of advantages, including its durability and relative lack of maintenance, and its ease of installation. However, one thing it does have is poor weather-tightness, so if you live in an area that gets a lot of rainfall and wind then you may want to think about getting some other form of roofing.

Tile is also popular for a lot of homes these days, and is often a great option for flat roofs if you are looking for a low maintenance option. However, there are a number of disadvantages, including the fact that tile can be very slippery when wet, and that it is prone to ‘slip resistance’ where it meets sloping surfaces. With many people choosing slate as their roofing material because it is very durable and long lasting, you will probably be able to find a good range of quality materials from which to choose.
