There are many types of roofs available on the market. There are an abundance of materials and styles available to your business. The type of roofing you choose will depend on a combination of many variables. For example, location, climate, price, durability, and maintenance will likely all play a factor to one degree or another.
These can be a complex landscape to navigate. Thankfully, this video lays out all the details that you need to know to pick the correct roofing for your business.
Potentially the most important factor in choosing a roof material is the life expectancy. You can expect those asphalt shingles to last you around 18 years on average. This is essentially what you get with the cheapest option on the market. On the other hand, cedar will last slightly longer at around 30 years on average. If you want the longest lifespan on your roof, think about getting a metal, clay, or rubber roof. These roofs can last up to 60 years. Part of why they last so long is their durability. They do a good job at withstanding the elements such as rain, wind, and snow.
