Deciding What Type of Roof You Want for Your Roof Replacement

There are a number of things to consider when selecting a new roof system. Of course, cost and durability head the list, but aesthetics and architectural style are important, too. The right roof system for your home or building is one that balances these five considerations. There are many kinds of roofing that you can choose from. A little information first: a "square" in roofing terminology is a 10-foot by 10-foot section of roof. Roofers determine this by calculation, and always add a certain percentage for cutting and replacement. The type you pick is based on your personal tastes, house style, and climate. The following roofing products commonly are used for steep-slope structures.
