How to Choose the Right Roof Shingle for Your Home

The condition and quality of your roof says a lot about the overall maintenance of your home. Whether you are planning to stay in your  home for years to come or you are thinking about putting it on the market, reliable, energy-efficient and stylish roofing will help increase the value and appearance of your home. When it comes to styles, colors and roofing products, the choices for the right roof shingle are endless. Here are a few tips from the experts at The Houston Roofing Group LLC to help you navigate the process.

How to Choose the Right Roof Shingle for Your Home

Roof Style and Colors

Roofing products are as varied as the customers who purchase them. Depending on the architectural style of your home, you may choose to go with a more traditional look or a more contemporary feel. If you are having trouble deciding, we suggest you check out the gallery of photos available at The Houston Roofing Group LLC to see some previous installations. If you still feel unsure, a specialist is available to help walk you through the process with samples for you to consider at home. Using the sample shingles, you can see how the color, design and overall look compliment the colors of your home’s exterior and design.

Durability and Installation

Another aspect of your roofing repair or replacement to consider is the type of materials and the installation process. New roofs typically last for 20 years, but if you choose materials like cement fiber, tile, slate and copper, the roof can last as long as 30 years. The Houston Roofing Group LLC also uses galvanized steel or corrosion resistant nails along with shingle underlayment, providing an additional layer of water and fire protection.

The Houston Roofing Group LLC makes roof installation a breeze. With most roofs installed in one day and personalized assistance, replacing your old roof is a snap. For more information on choosing the right roof shingle for your home, contact us.
