When I was growing up, we were told to say “rooves", with a hard “V.” These days “roofs” is the more common pronunciation. I might say either or both today in our mini lesson about choosing the right roofing material for your home.
When choosing the type of roof you want for your new home, you’ll need to consider how much money you want to spend and how often you want to maintain, and potentially repair or replace your roof. The roof is first and foremost a functional structure, but don’t dismiss the importance of choosing a roof that is aesthetically pleasing.
We often give quite a bit of thought to the way the front of our house, or the front elevation, will look, but we sometimes fail to give the color and texture of our ROOF as much consideration. What roof you choose will have a big impact on your home’s curb appeal. I recently read that if we think of the front of the house as your home’s face, then the roof is like your home’s hair. And you know how important someone’s hair is to their overall appearance.
So today I’ll give an overview of the 6 most common types of roofing materials. We’ll talk about how they function, how much they cost and how they look.
