How to Choose the Right Roofing Material for Your Home


When it comes to something as important as your roofing system, even seemingly small decisions can have a major, long-term impact on you and your home. This is why choosing the right materials is absolutely crucial when it comes to installing a new roof. While cost is probably the biggest consideration for most homeowners, it’s not the only factor that needs to be considered. In today’s post, your friends over at Bone Dry Roofing – West share a few tips on how to select the roofing material that’s best suited to your needs.

How Long Do You Want It To Last?

This is a question you should ask yourself if you’re in the market for a new roof. While many roofing materials are durable and built to last, some last longer than others. Asphalt shingles are the most popular choice – they’re relatively inexpensive and last a reasonable amount of time. However, if you don’t feel like replacing your roof every 15 years or so and don’t mind spending more money, concrete, clay or slate tiles will last significantly longer.

What Material Will Complement Your Home’s Style?

Any competent roofer will tell you that you should match your new roof to your existing architecture. For instance, clay tiles work great with Spanish-style homes, and wood shingles are best suited for a home done in the Craftsman style. Before deciding on a roofing material, it’s best to first consult a roofer or architect.

From minor roof repairs to full-on roof replacements and everything in between, when it comes to all things roof related, you should trust the experts.

Working with Bone Dry Roofing was best decision I made to deal with a leak in my roof. They took their time to correctly determine where the leak was coming from and the best way to fix it! And, they did! Everyone I worked with from their staff was awesome! I will definitely use them again!!

Initially called this company for a quote because I saw their truck in Denver and the driver used their blinker. Compared to 2 other roofing companies their quote was in the middle and was later adjusted for less materials being used than expected. After signing the contract they were ready to start the next week on a garage roof and home roof repair (weather permitting). The team was respectful of our home & our neighbor’s. Throughout the entire process the communication was great. Highly recommend!
We are so happy with the service we received from Bone Dry Roofing! Nick came out quickly and did an inspection and a quick estimate for us! The repairs were done quickly! Fernando did an amazing job! He was very friendly. We have a very pitched roof and so I was very impressed with his bravery. ( would not catch me up there ever)<br /> <br /> Very happy customer and highly recommend!
