NJ Roof Replacement: Choosing the Best Roofing Material for Your Home

When it comes to roof replacement, it is important to choose the right material because quality shingles act as a great protective barrier to your home to keep you insulated and increases the resale value of your home. There are a lot of things you need to take into consideration when choosing the right roofing material for your homes such as environmental factors (climate, weather), roofing needs, and your budget. When it comes to the various types of roofing material, it includes asphalt shingles (fiberglass, organic, three tabs, architectural), tiles, wood shingles, metal roofing, and slate. Let’s find out the advantages and disadvantages of each roofing material.

The most popular type of shingles is asphalt, that range between $100 to $150, and $2,000 to $8,500 to install. Asphalt shingles include organic and fiberglass shingles, with high energy-efficient properties meeting Energy Star standards, and a wide variety of colors, sizes, and styles available. In places where there is sudden fluctuation of temperature, asphalt shingles may not fare very well. While there are many high-quality shingles available right now, asphalt shingles can only be used on a roofing system with a steep slope, and because of temperature changes, cracks can easily damage an asphalt roof. Fiberglass asphalt shingles are layered with a waterproof coating with a fiberglass base mat, and these are durable lightweight, fire-resistant, UV resistant, and usually with a longer warranty than standard asphalt shingles. Fiberglass shingles’ installation cost around $3,500 to $8,000. Organic shingle are made of wood chips, rags, paper, and recycled cardboard, but are prone to moisture and saturation.

Tile shingles can be molded in several shapes, and these are often seen in Spanish or Mediterranean houses. When it comes to maintenance, tile shingles are more difficult to repair. Wood shingles are the most environmentally friendly, lasting up to fifty years, energy-efficient, and are available in redwood and cedar. The main drawback of wood shingles is that they can easily catch fire. Metal roofing is also affordable and are made of low-galvanized metals such as aluminum, tin, zinc, and copper. However, they are prone to holes, rust patches, loose nails, leaks, moisture, and curled edges and seams. Slate shingles are the best roofing material that can last up to 100 years, with damage resistance and waterproof properties.
