Slating and Tiling
What type of main component works best for your roof? The first thing that we want to say is that we personally don’t have a preference between slates, tiles, shingles, or whatever it is that you want your roofing to be composed of. That does not mean that we are not going to be giving out an opinion if we are asked about it. Certain areas are going to benefit more from slates. Some homes can look really well with traditional looking tiles. There are just a lot of variables if you will. We will be more than happy though to explore all of the options with you!
What To Consider Before Choosing Your Roofing Type
There are a couple of things that most people usually consider before choosing their roofing. Some are actually well-intended. You really need to make sure that the type of roof that you chose matches well with the rest of the home. If you are looking for more color options people tend to lean towards slates or shingles. That is not usually something that you should be too concerned about. We are going to let you know why in a little bit here!
We Can Help You Look At A Wide Variety of Options
The type of tiles or slates that you are going to be able to put on your roof, do not have to be limited by the options that you can find online or at a particular retailer. We have contact with different manufacturers. This is going to allow us to expand the options that are out there for you. In fact, we really believe that you should give us a call or contact us before you fully commit to a type of slate or tile that you find at home!
Are Tiles A Good Option?
There are actually certain parts of the world where using tiles on roofs is not a great idea. Tiles can blow away in heavy winds and storms. That is not necessarily an issue that you would have to worry about. Unless you were getting cheap tiles installed. This does happen some plastic and vinyl tile options are not going to weigh enough to hold themselves up on the roof. You need to make sure that you are getting proper materials installed in your roofing if you want long term results. If you use cheap materials, tiles won’t hold up, slates won’t either it’s that simple!
Are Slates A Good Option?
A lot of people think that slates are a better option for modern-looking homes and tiles are a better option for old fashioned looking homes. While there are some modern-looking homes that can look great with slates they are not the only type of roofing that you can choose for your home if you want to have a modern look. One of the things that we enjoy most about our business is being able to experiment with different designs. We can help you explore different designs with these two options and more.
