The average roof comprises of 40 percent of your home's exterior, so while planning your roofing remodeling project, you must ensure that it looks appealing. Consider the look of your entire home to choose the kind of roofing to install, taking into account the weather conditions. You want to make sure it will keep you protected. Roofing is a major concern for homeowners when it comes to a remodeling project because it's extensive and involves safety concerns. Here is how you can ensure that your project ends smoothly:
Inspect Your Roof
While builders such as us at Joshua Deatherage Builders inspect your roof before a remodeling project, we also suggest that clients have a look at their own roofs first. You must know the problems you are encountering in your roof, where the damage(s) is, and what you need changed. We can give you suggestions, but only after we understand what you are looking for in your roof remodeling project. Some things you should look out for when inspecting your roof include cracking, missing shingles, curling, lack of granule covering or water stains on the inside of the roof which indicate an emerging roof leak.
Know Your Options
When it comes to roofing, homeowners have many variations in style, colors, and materials to choose from. In the United States, four out of every five homes have asphalt shingles. There are two kinds of asphalt products available- organic and fiberglass. Both kinds of shingles are weather resistant but come with their own set of pros and cons. For instance, fiberglass may break easier than organic shingles during winter but are more moisture resistance.
Don’t Forget Ventilation
A ventilation system in the attic ensures that your roof will remain well kept and functional for a long time. Ventilation requirements differ by region but we ensure that we comply with the ventilation requirements of the area that you reside in. The National roofing contractors Association recommends that, for a 150 square feet of attic floor, the vent should be a minimum of 1 square foot.
Discuss Your Alternatives
As we mentioned before, there are many textures, colors, and styles you can choose your roofing options from, but most homeowners either are unaware of it or prefer sticking to the basics. Your roofing remodeling is an investment in your home and you must take it seriously. Consider your alternatives such as cedar or redwood to give your home an appealing look. The whole purpose of the roof is to provide your home safety but it should also look attractive. However, consider fire concerns as well and balance the look with the material before choosing
