Choosing the Right Materials For a New Roof

The primary function of a new roof is to protect your home and everything in it. The shape, slope, and materials all need to work together to create a tight fit around your home, a barrier between the interior and exterior.

However, you can’t forget about the visual aesthetic and creating a beautiful and stylish home, complimenting your neighborhood and the environment.

Your location will point you towards certain materials that are made for your climate. Weather resistance, strength, and durability are vital components to consider when choosing materials for a new roof.

For Colorado homes, both in the Front Range and mountain communities, we deal with fluctuating temperatures and weather conditions, including extreme hail storms. Similarly, you need to consider materials that are also fire and impact-resistant. Some materials may look great, like wood shakes, but we do not recommend them in our climate.

Elements to Consider When Designing a New Roof

In the composition of a roof, you always have to find a balance between the functional and physical elements and the stylistic choices that make your home more attractive and appealing.
