Residential Roofing Services

Which Residential Roof Type is Best for you?

While deciding what kind of roof type you want to have in your home, a homeowner often faces much confusion as there are lots of options to explore. When you as a homeowner start thinking about the roof of your home, you will need to go through the following questions:

  • Are asphalt roof shingles good for my home?
  • Should I get concrete tiles or a slate roof?
  • What should be the design of my roof?

Whether you are planning to repair your existing roof or going for a complete roof replacement or mulling for a new roof, your first step should be the decision of the design of your roof and the roofing tiles.

There are many agencies that offer roofing services in Edinburgh but It is a good idea to consider having a consultation with a professional contractor that will help you understand the roofing option available for you and then select the perfect one. At Ronald Graham Roofing and Building Ltd, our professionals will go through all the roof styles that will fit your home style and will suggest the designs of roofing systems that will match your style.

Find the perfect roof type for your home n the basis of function, design, and price

As you now know the type of roofing option, it is time to decide the roofing choice you want in your home. Now is the time when you should consult the roofing professional or contractor.

Along with long-lasting residential roofing services, a professional contractor will help you decide the roofing type best for your home on the basis of design, price, and function.

 

Design

When you opt for durable and high-quality roofing, you are actually going to have a great resale price and will add a curb appeal to your home. In order to have some aesthetic feel in the home, you can go for beautiful terracotta tile roofing while the cedar shakes are best for providing the rustic charm to your home. Also, those demanding more style should opt for slate roofing. Your professional roofing contractor Edinburgh will help you select the best on the basis of your taste.

 

Function

In the case when you are planning to have a roof, it is obvious you are doing it for the protection of your home from rain, sun as well as temperature. So the main aim of the roofing should be protection rather than design. Also, you should have good roofing in order to protect your home in high wind areas like Edinburgh. Also, there are options of underlayment, framing, and installation technique available that will help in enhancing the performance of the roof to work well even in the harshest environmental condition.

 

Price

The price of the roof is decided on the basis of its measurement in roofing squares which is about 100 sq feet. Those looking for some reasonable roofing type should go for asphalt shingles and metal roofing. However, slate roofing is a durable type of roof that will last for around a century. You can consult your roofing contractor to decide the roof according to your need and price.
