What roofing type is right for your home?

Figuring out what type of roofing system belongs on your home should be considered by the weather and climate you live in. Your roof goes under a lot of seasons that are filled with unexpected weather at times. Sometimes that unexpected weather can have a major effect on your home.


When serious weather hits, you’ll want to have a secured roofing system on your home.

Roofing Types for Your Home




An Asphalt roof is the classic and most used roofing system for your home. Asphalt shingles are the most traditional roofing system you’ll find. There are a wide range of three-tab shingles to designer choices. These type of shingles are very affordable, durable and beautiful.




Having a slate roofing system creates a beautiful landscape to look at. Slate has been one of the most durable choices to select for some of the greatest buildings around the world. Truslate allows you to mix and match color schemes to create a fun roof. A slate roofing system provides:


  • Affordable luxury
  • Strength
  • Fire resistant
  • Water resistant
  • Color blending
  • Minimal maintenance




Metal roofing isn’t just for looks, but it can reduce energy costs and is maintenance free. Metal roofs are made from heavy duty, rust-free aluminum parts including other metal parts. The benefits from metal roofing is that it is durable, wind and weather resistant, light weight, and will increase the home and resale value.


Choosing the roofing system for your home will depend on where you live and your budget. Select a roof that will benefit you and your budget and your family in case of extreme weather would hit.

New Year, New Roof

Ring in the new year with a new roof for your home! The start of the new year is the best time for homeowners to go through their property and start to plan out what needs fixed, upgraded and even replaced.


Planning ahead for future home repairs can help avoid high maintenance costs, and will financially prepare your family. Depending on the condition of the home, homeowners will spend anywhere from 1% to 4% of their home value on annual maintenance costs.


In order to plan for these repairs within your budget, here are a couple of points to run through to receive the repairs for your roofing system.


Get an Inspection


Every year your roofing system should be inspected for loose shingles, nails, soft spots and leaky areas. The roof is one of the main areas of the home to always keep up to date because it holds the home together and protects it during the different seasons. Rain, snow, high winds and the hot summer sun all effects your roofing system. If you don’t feel comfortable inspecting your own roof, hire one of our roofing professionals to come and check it out.

Review Home Insurance


Does your area get bad weather during the year? Has unusual weather ever occurred and you weren’t prepared? Home Insurance is vital in order to guarantee protection and coverage during these times. It needs to be up-to-date and should always cover structural damage from hail storms, tornadoes and more. If your home has impact-resistant shingles, your home could be eligible for a discount on your insurance.


Your Attic Space


Any leaks or soft areas need to be checked within the attic space because those could cause internal damage to the home. Things to look for are:


  • Wet spots or drips
  • Pinholes in roof (caused by weather)


These signs will detect a repair or a new roof replacement. Planning for your roofing maintenance will save you a lot of money down the road and can help save your roof from collapsing in. Make sure to get your roof inspected this new year with Roofscapes Exteriors, and double check your insurance!

Caution: Ice Dams

An ice dam is a ridge of ice that can build up and form at the edge of your roof. When snow builds up on your roof, the snow underneath will start to melt from the heat your house is creating. This meltwater will then run down to the eaves, and because eaves tend to be the coldest point on the roof, it freezes. Once this happens, meltwater will continue to run down the roof, and the ice will continue to grow due to the initial ice that froze in the eave of the roof. As the meltwater continues to drip with nowhere to go, a water backup will occur.

Standing water and your roof are never a happy mix. If you see this happening contact us right away for a free inspection.
