What Is The Right Material For A Wilmington Roofing Project?

Aug 9, 2008
To protect your home from the elements you need good walls and roof. As homes get older then there is a likelihood that at some stage the roof may need to be repaired or replaced. Below we provide some advice for your Wilmington roofing project or anywhere that you may live to help ensure that your roof is repaired or replaced to the best standard possible.

The first thing one should be doing is to get a roofing contractor to come and have a look at your home and see exactly what needs to be done. It is best if you arrange for a couple of contractors to come and have a look and get each of them to give you a quotation for how much the work is going to cost.

After this has been done now you can decide which material it is you want to use on your Wilmington roofing project whether the roof is to be repaired or replaced. If the roof is just needing repairs to make it sound once more then the same materials as what is currently on the roof should be used. But if the roof needs to be replaced completely then you can either choose to stay with the same as what is on it currently or opt to go for something different instead. But you need to be aware that the various materials used for roofing are not only different in characteristics but also in cost as well.

Below we now look at the kinds of materials used for roofing projects not just in Wilmington but in other cities and town across the USA.

1. Asphalt is the most commonly used material in roofing today and there are two varieties one can get being organic or non-organic. The great thing about this particular kind of roofing material is that it not only comes in a wide range of colors but also it lasts a considerably long time. On average you can expect a well laid asphalt roof to last between 25 and 50 years.

2. Wood shingles is another material favored for roofing and is made from Western Red Cedar simply because it is very resistant to decay or corrosion. Normally there are three kinds of wood shingle used on properties today, and generally it is that classed as 1 which is used for the main part of the roof whilst those classed as 2 and 3 will be used for the roof sidings.

3. Wood Shakes give a roof a more natural look and it takes quite a long time for the work to be completed as each plank that is placed on the roof has to be sawed or hand split. This type of roof also costs quite considerably more than either of the two mentioned above because of the work required to prepare it.

After choosing which material you are going to be using for your Wilmington roofing project you now need to find a contractor to carry out the work for you. It is important that the Wilmington roofing contractor you choose is one who specializes in the material you have chosen as then the quality of the work will be the best possible and so you know that you are going to get a roof that lasts.
