Replacing the roof of your home is the responsibility of every long-term home owner. Typical shingle roofs only have an estimated lifespan of 15 years and become exponentially more expensive to replace. In the Pacific Northwest, that number is less accurate due to our sometimes severe and always very wet weather. Roof replacement can increase the value of your home as well as protect all the precious things within, but where does one start on the journey to a new roof?
Consider your options. Shingle roofs, metal roofs, or alternative materials are all effective, but which is right for your home? Consider solar panels and where they would be most effective. Consider green alternatives and how the weather in your area will affect your choice. Consult with more than one roofing company for a well-rounded idea of the scope of your project.
Metal roofing is an attractive option for many Northwest homeowner’s due to its durability. The often-brutal weather we experience in the Portland area is expertly deflected by metal roofing, The cost is higher up front, however, the lifetime savings are considerable.
