Q: What is the best type of roofing material?
I just bought a fixer-upper and the roofing needs to be completely redone. What is the best, most durable roofing to install?
A: "The BEST!!"
Answering a question about the "best" is not easy to do. There are many factors; most durable, most cost efficient, most fashionable to thin about. The least expensive roofing is shingles, but they don't look the best, they also don't last the longest. Tile roofing is considered the best looking (especially since there are different styles such as barrel and flat tiles) and last much longer than shingles. But, my personal and professional opinion is that metal roofing is the "best." There are quite a few new product lines in the metal roofing world that make is so appealing. The first thought about metal roofing is the old aluminum color roof with the vertical lines that you see on Florida Cracker houses. Now a days you can get metal roofing in any color, you can also get metal roofing that has a tile looking pattern to it. Metal roofs have the best warranty of any roofing material and hold up the best. I hope this was helpful.
