An average roof is replaced or repaired in as little as 8 to 10 years. Choosing the correct roofing material for your home from the start is critical in order to minimize the long-term costs, as well as the environmental damage caused by having made the wrong choice and needing to re-roof over in a few years.

Now that you know you need a new roof, it is the perfect time to make some changes that could benefit you in the long run. Choosing the correct material to roof your home can lower your energy costs, while increasing your homes curb appeal.

Also don’t forget that your roof is your first line of defense against the weather. So, choose ahead of time a roof that is durable and won’t fail in extreme weather conditions, just when you need it most.


Today’s metal roofing can provide you with any style or colours that would complement your home perfectly. Aluminum can be shaped to look like Tile, Slate, Shingle or Shake.

While the initial cost of a metal roof is higher than some other roofing materials, it can save you money in the long run. In some states due to the high impact resistance to hail for example, a metal roof can lower your homeowners insurance.

Metal will also not be affected by other extreme weather the way other organic roofing materials will. With the lightweight benefits of metal your roof won’t need a heavy-duty truss or structure system for installing.

Metal roofing can decrease the chances of roof collapse, during earthquake or fire damage. Metal roofing products protect your home from sparks due to flying embers should fire threaten.

Asphalt Composition Shingle

Composition shingles are the most common roofing material in North America. They are commonly made of either fiberglass or recycled paper based products mixed with asphalt, which is then covered with colourised mineral granules. While they have a low installation cost, composition shingles will usually protect your home for about 10-15 years. Some composition roofs require maintenance or repair in as little as 8 years.

Some shingles can be easily damaged by high winds, causing the shingles to blow off. High heat, heavy rains and other weather factors can cause curling, cracking and streaking of the shingles, which deteriorates your roof’s appearance and effectiveness. An average home with composition shingles will have to be re-roofed many times over its lifetime, creating waste that will need to be disposed of in the environment
