Top 4 Residential Roofs On The Market

 

There are many different materials to choose from when it’s time to replace your home’s roof. You can select from man-made materials, such as asphalt, or natural alternatives like wood. Though you’re certainly not limited to just those two examples.

Every kind has a range of benefits and aesthetic properties, and it’s undoubtedly worthwhile finding your perfect match. Because there are so many options, making a choice can be overwhelming for many homeowners. Our team of experts here at Home Genius Exteriors are happy to help reduce the stress that can come with roof replacements.

Let’s discuss the benefits and drawbacks of the four most popular residential roofing materials.

 

Asphalt Shingles

This material has withstood the test of time and is still extremely popular today. Even as other new alternatives come and go, asphalt shingles can be found on nearly 80% of homes in the United States. Asphalt shingles are affordable, making them ideal for any homeowners on a budget. This material can also be attached in different ways to create various aesthetic outcomes. Asphalt shingles are highly resistant to wind and fire, as well as easily replaceable if they are lost. While they can last up to 20 years, they are not quite as durable as some other materials.

 

Flat Roofs

While not the most popular choice for traditional homes, flat roofs can wonderfully complement modern houses. Flat roofs allow easy accessibility for roofing contractors, meaning that getting the job done is quick and cost-effective. Inspections and repairs can be carried out quickly, as well. Flat roofs offer a sleek look to your home, and they are an easy, low-maintenance roofing option.

 

Metal Roofing

Though asphalt shingles remain the most popular choice, metal roofing is gaining popularity. While this material will cost you more upfront, metal roofing systems have a lot more to offer than other materials. They have superior resistance to wind and fire, and they’re very eco-friendly. They can also reduce your energy costs thanks to their reflective abilities. You can find metal roofing options in a variety of materials from copper and steel through to aluminum. Metal roofing systems have a long lifespan, too, averaging around 70 years.

 

Tile Roofing

When it comes to longevity, clay tiles top the list. With proper care and maintenance, clay tiles can last up to 100 years on your home’s roof. They are also fireproof and highly resistant to damage from wind, rain, and hail. The way in which clay tiles are laid on your roof creates an air pocket that forms an additional layer of insulation, too. Concrete tiles are another attractive option, though they aren’t quite as durable as clay. You can expect about 50 years out of concrete tiles, which for many, is still more than enough.

“I replaced the roof and gutter, not my first time on the project. It's my first time working with Home Genius. I'm glad I chose this company. The crew that represent the company ( Buddy, Alex, Tim, Pablo, and the crew) are the greatest persons I've met. Very professional, pleasant, respectful, and they show up on time, they all take their time to explain all my questions/concerns and show me every step of the project. I am grateful to be served by these wonderful people and company.”

“I’m very impressed with Home Genius Exteriors. From the sales opportunity, to ordering, and finally execution everything was smooth sailing. Rob, who sold us our roof, was educated on the product and process. He answered all my detailed questions with patience. A special comment must be left for our Project Manager, Mike, who went above and beyond in every way. He was always available, answers all our questions, thoroughly reviewed the work was done, and even let us know that he is available after the project with any questions. You can tell he truly takes pride in his work. I have worked with others, and so has my family, and I’ll tell you right now we’re sticking with Home Genius Exteriors for all future projects due to Mike’s customer service. Highly recommended company to work with! Our roof is gorgeous.”

“Home Genius Exteriors replaced my entire roof and they were absolutely amazing. They were professional, did quality work, and had great customer service. We had missing shingles and Home Genius was able to complete our roof in less than a week from the estimate! Melissa did the estimate and was very knowledgeable and helped us make the best decision for our home. Casey was the project manager and she communicated all the information we needed, was on top of everything with the project, and was even helping clean up after the work was complete to make sure the yard was safe for my kids. Would definitely recommend Home Genius 10/10 they went the extra mile!”
