No architectural work can be completed without finishing the roof installation, whether it is a renovation work or the construction of a building from scratch. One of the biggest challenges a homeowner must deal with is the choice of the roofing materials. Looking to an experienced roofing company like Lon Smith Roofing in Dallas can remove that challenge.
The most popular materials nowadays are asphalt shingles and metal shingles, but the two are also very different.
Asphalt shingles are easy to install, compared to other roofing materials. If some of the shingles get damaged, the problem can be fixed very easily, even without the intervention of an expert, if the homeowner has some basic technical skills. Compared to other types of roof cover options, asphalt shingles are the most cost-effective. The estimated lifespan of such a roof is only about 15 years, but the protection provided during this time is good and the price is affordable, which weighs heavily in the eyes of many homeowners on a budget.
On the other hand, one of the disadvantages is that asphalt shingles cannot be installed on roofs with slopes greater than 12°.
A metal roof is more expensive but also much more resistant and durable. With an estimated service life of over 40 years, minimal maintenance, energy efficiency, resistance to any weather conditions and fire, the metal roof is an excellent solution that can be used on any building. The higher purchase price you will pay compared to other materials will bring you great ROI, so investing in such a roof is very effective in the long run.
