When choosing a material for a roof replacement project, you not only have to consider its price and aesthetic appeal. Another factor that you’ll have to think about is the climate in your area. This is because the performance of various roofing materials varies according to your climate. Luckily, if you live in a warm climate, there are roofing materials available at your disposal.
When it comes to residential roofing, many homeowners often prioritize fashion over function. They want a roof that looks good but they pay very little attention to performance, price, and durability. With a slate-tile roof, you get the unmatched beauty of slate along with its known strengths. Unfortunately, this type of material is sometimes too heavy for most homes’ rafters, not to mention equally heavy on the homeowners’ pockets as well.
GAF’s TruSlate® roof is the ultimate alternative to traditionally installed slate roofs. Thanks to its ingenious design, it is far superior to other options and costs far less than the original.
Warranties vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. While some may be prorated, some are not. In the same way, some may cover both labor and materials, while others may cover materials alone. Before you undertake a roof repair project, make sure to fully review your existing warranties. This way, you won’t end up spending more than you need to.

As roof replacement can be a difficult process under such circumstances, here are some tips to keep in mind so you can handle emergency roof repairs during the cold season.
