House design is a complex and very responsible process. During this process, it is important to choose high-quality and reliable parts of the construction, because all of them will affect the final result. Not only the foundation, walls or floor of the house are important, but also the roof. This is probably the most important component and one that gives real headache. Knowing that roofing is not a cheap product, we must choose it carefully and take into account factors such as: price, manufacturer, appearance, material, color, durability. Let’s reed further to see what kind of roofing do experts advise to choose these days?

What to consider when choosing a roof covering?

When building or renovating a house, in almost all cases, you are faced with a new roof covering and, of course, the choice of a specific option. Although, when choosing roofing, we used to trust the opinion and recommendations of the building store salesman, now it is really not advisable to solely rely on their words, as they are often interested in selling most expensive product and less offer an option to suit individual needs. Of course, this is probably the easiest and simplest way without thinking too much about what kind of roofing is needed, but it is certainly not the most rational.

Take advantage of the fact that in the market of building materials you can buy different roofing options offered by the most reliable manufacturers. Only by evaluating the advantages and disadvantages of each option, you will be able to be sure that you have made the most rational decision. To help you do so, we discuss the following aspects: durability, resistance, environmental friendliness, acoustic properties, manufacturer, price and type.

Longevity

It goes without saying that you don’t plan to change the roofing as often as, let’s say, the color of the facade. By choosing a high-quality, long-lasting option and complying with the maintenance requirements of a specific coating, the latter can successfully serve not only you, but also future generations. When it comes to the durability of a roof covering, it is very important to pay attention to the warranty that comes with it. Depending on the type and model, there are two types of warranty - the preservation of aesthetic properties (usually shorter period) and practical service (which can last for the entire life of the roof covering). If the roof of the house used to last about 50 - 60 years or even more, now the maximum guarantee for roofs can reach to 20 - 30 years. If the tiles you want to buy do not have at least 10 years warranty, it is advisable to look for another option.

Resistance to external environmental factors

The main function of the roof covering is to protect the building structure from adverse external environmental factors (precipitation, wind, temperature changes, ultraviolet rays of the sun), preserving the practical functions and the aesthetic look.

Ecology

Nowadays, ecology is very important and significant for the whole society. To protect not only nature but also our own health, organic tiles made from natural materials are the number one choice. Organic materials, therefore, do not contain substances that are hazardous to our health.

Acoustics

Most of unwanted sounds come from the outside of the house and are transmitted through ventilation gaps, roof windows and roof structures. In order to insulate unpleasant and disturbing sounds, it is very important to choose roof tiles that insulate from sound well. Otherwise, you will have to get used to the sound of outside traffic or the noise of the wind.

Manufacturer

You’ve probably noticed that the supply of tiles these days is just huge. You can choose from a hundreds of different types of tiles. Well, what about the manufacturers. As mentioned before, the choice of manufacturer must also be based on the duration of the warranty for the tiles and how long company has been on the market.

Price

Price of a roof is another very important aspect for every homeowner and can be biggest influence in decision making. However, it is certainly not the area where the lowest price should be a deciding factor. We recommend relying on well-known manufacturers of building materials. However, the decision to choose a lower price in case, when comparing the two options, their characteristics meet the set criteria - a rational step.

Furthermore, you should not forget to take into account that biggest part of roof costs come from is its construction and insulation, not the material itself.

Type

We offer most innovative and in demand options for everyone’s personal choice to achieve highest standards that will go hand in hand with customers chosen style. We offer these most popular roofing cover options: Felt shingles, Ceramic shingles and Tin facades but also work with many others.

So, if you have thought that choosing a roof covering will be a very simple and fast job, do not forget that the roof covering will serve you for many years. So take all the above factors into account before making a decision. In order for it to last for more than 10 years, do not forget to pay attention to the manufacturer's guarantee. Also, the acoustics of the roof, the price and of course the materials they are made from.
