Replacing your home’s roof is not a decision to be taken lightly. Besides it being perhaps the single most important component of the home, it is also likely the most expensive component, so you will want to take your time with this decision. You can count on the options being endless, we can tell you that. Home Genius Exteriors will happily guide you through this process when you’re ready to replace your roof in Philadelphia. Below we share the best roofing materials for popular Philadelphia home styles.

 

Asphalt shingles

Homeowners love this option because it presents an affordable roofing material, without having to compromise on durability. You can expect to get a roofing lifespan of around 30 years using asphalt shingles, which also allows homeowners to choose from a variety of options.

 

The most popular types of asphalt shingles are architectural shingles and 3-tab shingles, both of which Home Genius is experienced in installing with great success.

 

The important thing when deciding on your home’s roofing material is to thoroughly consult with your roofing service provider, taking into account your budget, home’s structure and design preference.

 

Metal 

Metal is one of the most durable materials for roofing on the market today. Its sheer strength means it can withstand any kinds of extreme weather conditions, not that this is a major concern in Philadelphia.

 

Metal as a roofing material can be imagined in so many different ways too. You’d be forgiven for thinking it has to be presented as bland, silver sheets. They come in a variety of colors and are able to be texturized, with stone-coated metal roofing serving as a good alternative for more premium roofing options. Flat roofs can also make use of metal as its material. The most popular type for this function is aluminium, which is superior in terms of its durability.

 

Whether tiled or flat, an added benefit of metal roofing is its ability to reflect heat, which will impact your home’s energy costs in a good way. This is a particularly valuable point for homes located in the Philly heat.

“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!”

Suzanne R.

“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.”

“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.”
