Find the right roof type for your home based on design, function, price

Finding the right residential roof type for your home is difficult. Perhaps you have a mansard-shaped roof, and need to find shingles that interlock for the steep-sloped part of the roof. Or maybe you crave the beautiful look and long lifetime of slate and tile roofs.

In order to have a truly water-tight and long-lasting roofing system, though, you’ll need to hire a roofing contractor for quality residential roofing services. Residential roofing services make the difference between a roof that leaks a few years into service and a roof that lasts.

In addition to providing long-lasting residential roofing services, a roofing contractor will guide you toward the right residential roof type based on design, function, and price.

  • Design
    Quality roofing can add resale value to your home and add to its curb appeal. Beautiful terra cotta tile roofing can fit one home’s aesthetic, while the rustic appeal of cedar shakes might fit another’s. Or perhaps slate roofing is more of your style. Whatever your tastes, a roofing contractor will be able to walk you through choices that satisfy them.
  • Function
    Roofing, of course, is supposed to protect your home from the sun, rain, and temperature. Good roofing performs, even in high wind areas with great temperature variance like St. Louis. There are framing, underlayment and installation techniques to help a roofing system perform in even the toughest environmental conditions.
  • Price
    Roofs are typically measured—and priced—in roofing squares, which are about 100 square feet. Metal roofing and asphalt shingles are among the most reasonably priced by roofing squares. You might, however, get a longer run out of a slate or tile roof, which can last for hundreds of years. A roofing contractor will be able to point you toward the right roofing material for your price point.
