4 Roof Replacement Options for Your Home

If it’s about time for you to get a replacement roof, then you’ll want to consider plenty of options before you make any decisions. Most homeowners in suburban neighborhoods throughout the United States have asphalt shingles simply because they’re one of the cheapest options.
However, you can get a different type of roof that’s not only more visually-pleasing but also more cost-effective. This article outlines some of the best roofing alternatives. Read through them and see which one you’d like for your roof. Then, contact your local roofing company and schedule an appointment for a consultation. Start your journey to improving your home today!

Solar Shingles

Rooftop solar panels are have become more popular over recent years because they’re both energy-efficient and cost-effective. Solar shingles are an alternative to their more conventional counterpart, and they provide their own set of benefits. While they might have been thinner in the past, today’s shingles are usually made with rigid materials like tempered glass. This helps them look like traditional shingles. They can also be installed without special installation crews.
The greatest benefit of getting solar shingles, though, is the fact that they create electricity during the day. This is the only roofing material that will offer a financial return on your investment.

Standing Seam Roofing

Standing seam is a type of metal roofing that’s made up of vertical panels. They tend to provide a more finished appearance and stronger durability than corrugated metal roofing. It’s typically available in materials including copper, galvanized steel, and galvalume.
Standing seam panels will be installed over an underlayment (like an ice-and-water shield) as well as standard plywood roof decking. These panels run parallel to the slope of your roof, and they’re usually 12 to 24 inches wide.
Many roofing companies will install standing seam roofing. Contact your local company, like Legacy Service, today to get started on this process!

Single-Ply Roofing

Many commercial buildings use single-ply roofing since it’s a popular option and can be used on any slope of roof. The two main types of single-ply roofing include thermoplastic and thermoset. 
Thermoplastic membranes are welded together with hot-air to form cohesive laps. When the material cools, it returns to its original state, which forms a permanent bond. It also usually has a layer of fiberglass or polyester for extra strength and stability.
Thermoset is made with layers of synthetic rubber polymers, including CSPE, EPDM, and Neoprene. It’s typically used for large roof areas due to their large size.

Stone-Coated Metal

Stone-coated metal can mimic the look of clay tiles, wood shakes, and asphalt shingles. As a premium roofing material, it can come with warranties up to 50 years. It’s also highly-rated when it comes to the resistance of hail, wind, and fire. Since it’s made with a corrosion-resistant metal, it’s designed to not slough off over time as the mineral coating does with asphalt shingles. 
This type of roofing is usually installed over battens to create air spaces between the roof deck and roofing, which helps serve as insulation.

    Installing solar panels is a great idea. To be honest, I always wanted to do that but I wasn’t sure because it’s not that cheap. Currently, I think it was my best decision. Solar energy is worth its cost and it has plenty of advantages. Besides, this option is more “green”. If you are interested in solar panels, I would love to recommend a good website, just check it out
