If you need a new roof, one of the first decisions you will have to make is which roofing material to use. While there's no one-size-fits-all solution, the answer almost always comes down to striking the right balance between form and function. Start by creating a budget. Residential roofing materials can vary dramatically in price, so knowing what you can spend will narrow down your choices. Next, talk to a roofing company about which materials will stand up best to the elements in your area. From that list, consider what kind of new roof will work best with your home's style. Asphalt is a great choice for residential roofing if you want something simple, while a new tile roof can add dramatic style.
