Choosing The Right Roofing Material For You

When it comes to picking a roof, the options can sometimes be overwhelming. There are so many different materials out there and each one does something different or provides a different feel for your roof. If you want something a little more traditional, you may want to get a shingle roof. Or if you want something that will give off more protection, maybe you want a metal roof of some kind. When you are choosing a roof, you have to think about several different things. The first is what you want it to look like. If you have a specific look in mind, there are many different materials that look similar to each other but are made of different things. The second is that you need to know what kind of protection and how long you want your roof to last for. This will help you decide which is best for you.


Wood Shake – When you want a wooden roof, you have to understand that it will come with a lot of maintenance. Although shake roofing is a beautiful way to cover your home, you also have to know the risks as well.

Metal – Metal roofs come in all shapes and sizes these days. You can get a metal roof that looks just like shingles or you can have green colored steel, it is all up to you. Metal roofing is a great option because it provides protection as well as longevity for you.

3- Tab Shingles – Many people opt for this because they know it will last a solid 20 years if taken care of and it is also inexpensive compared to many of the other options.

There are so many choices out there that this doesn’t even begin to cover it. If you need help choosing a roof for you and needing someone to install it, give Great Built Roofing & Construction a call at 281-723-3724 and we will do whatever it takes to get you the roof of your dreams.
