If you are considering getting a new roof, you may be wondering how to choose! With so many different colors, materials, styles, and features, it can be a difficult decision to make. At Chappell Roofing, we want to help you through the entire roofing process, from beginning to end. So today we’re helping you decide how to choose a new roof!
Before shopping for a new roof, it is important to determine how much money you have to spend. So whether it’s based off a claim, or just how much you’re willing to pay, you need to determine a price point in order to explore all your available options.
There are a wide variety of colors you can choose from, depending on the type of roof you want. You should base the color of roof you choose on the color of your brick and/or trim (keeping in mind you can always paint the trim). The color should not exactly match the brick or trim, but rather compliment each other. For example, if there is a flake of gray in your brick, you could consider a gray color for your roof.
Like colors, there are various roofing materials you can choose. From asphalt, to clay, and even stone, the decision is ultimately based on your price point and the qualities you desire. With different materials come different lifetimes. In fact, some roof materials are designed to last up to 100 years! Additionally, different roofing materials offer different features. Some are fade resistant, while others reflect sunlight to save energy.
Ultimately, you want the roof you choose to add to the curb appeal of your home. The roof you choose should compliment the architectural style of your home (traditional, colonial, modern, etc.).
