Your roofing solution Noblesville can help you. Remember the important things to consider: cost, color, texture, weight, durability, installation requirements, style and aesthetics.

Here’s what you need to know:

Terminology: Roofers don’t use the measure square feet”, instead they use “squares”.  A square is their basic unit of measurement, 1 sq = 100 sq. ft. in area.

 Cost : Condition of existing roof if remodeling the house(supporting structures need repair or if old materials must be stripped off), shape of the roof, price of materials to use, all contribute to the cost. A house with multiple chimneys, intersecting roof lines, turrets, skylights, or other elements will cost significantly more to roof.

Materials:

Not every roofing material can be used on every roof. A flat roof or one with a low slope may demand a surface different from one with a steeper pitch.

Asphalt ShingleThis is the most commonly used of all roof materials, probably because it’s the least expensive and requires a minimum of skill to install. It’s made of a fiberglass medium that’s been impregnated with asphalt and then given a surface of sand-like granules.

Wood. Usually made of cedar, redwood, or southern pine, shingles are sawn or split. They have a life expectancy in the 25-year range (like asphalt shingles) but cost an average of twice as much.

Metal.  Aluminum, steel, copper, copper-and-asphalt, and lead are all durable—and expensive. Lead and the copper/asphalt varieties are typically installed as shingles, but others are manufactured for seamed roofs consisting of vertical lengths of metal that are joined with solder.

Tile and Cement.  They are expensive, very durable, and very heavy. The half cylinders of tile roofing are common on Spanish Colonial and Mission styles.

Slate: Most durable, heavy, but expensive of all roofing materials.
