So, you have decided it is time to replace your roofing system. With all of the options available, how do you know which system is best for your home and budget? Here are 5 factors to consider when choosing a new roof. 

Roof Slope

The ability to effectively remove excess water from your roof is a great place to begin when deciding on a roofing material. Most homes in North America have a steep pitch, therefore asphalt roofing is a wise option. Metal is a material that assists with excess snow removal, so in the Denver area, a metal roof is a good second option. 


How much work do you want to do in maintaining a quality roof? If you desire virtually no maintenance, consider a longer-lasting material such as slate or tile. These two materials have extended lifespans. Due to its extreme durability, slate can last up to 200 years, and tile is nearly 100 years. If you desire a less financial burden, perhaps asphalt or metal roofing would suit your needs. These two will require more maintenance and the lifespan is drastically shorter but still a great quality material.  Asphalt roofs can last around 25 years, and metal is about double that time frame. 

Material Weight

Be sure to consider the weight of the material when deciding on a new roof. Some materials are heavier and require a stronger frame. Asphalt is the lightest material, while slate and tile are the heaviest. Discuss with a trusted reputable roofing company if the structure of your home can support the weight of the material you are considering.

Does your home have a rustic natural look? Imagine the charm of a beautiful cedar roof! Is your home Mediterranean or Spanish-style? A tile roof can elevate the look of your home’s curb appeal. Or what if your home is more traditional in style? Look no further than a classy asphalt or modern metal roofing system. The options, colors, and styles vary depending on the uniqueness of your home and your taste. 


The prices vary depending on the roofing material you are considering. Asphalt is the least expensive option, and slate and tile are the most expensive.
