Why Roofing Is Important In Early Stages Of Building Construction

November 1st, 2022 | By Dale Chastain

As you start to build your new home, you’ve probably given some thought to the individual rooms, including the kitchen, living room, bedrooms, and bathroom. You’ve envisioned what the rooms would look like, but the last thing people usually think about when constructing a new home is what the roof will look like. Designing and building your roof shouldn’t be an afterthought. You can partner with one of the top roofing companies in Fayetteville, GA, to ensure your roof is one of the first things people notice when they drive past your home.

How will the outside of your home look? Do you want a basic asphalt shingle roof or something more exotic like a Spanish villa roof with clay tiles? Or do you want to be more architecturally creative and have a butterfly roof, which is the inversion of a standard roof with two surfaces sloping down from opposing edges.

Asphalt shingles are less expensive but a little less eye appealing. But will another material stretch your budget? It may be best to reallocate your home building budget to make the exterior of your home look as good as it can be.

Another material you can use to give your roof a modern appeal is concrete tiles. Concrete is very durable but tends to allow water to seep underneath. So you would have to get concrete tiles you use with a waterproofing membrane resistant to water. Also, the roof’s frame needs to be able to support them because concrete tiles are also heavier than other materials.

A smart roofing option is metal roofs, which provide a water-resistant covering. Our snap-in system, which has hidden fasteners, protects against harmful storm elements and will last for years. These roofs are also customizable, such as the option of thickness, shape, length, width, and color.

Another thing to consider about your roof is the color. More and more homeowners have light-colored roofs, which help keep your home cooler in the summertime. A dark-colored roof will trap more heat, meaning you will have to run your A/C unit more to stay cool. The color array of roofs has vastly expanded over the years, so you have plenty of choices.
