With the range of roofing material options available out there, homeowners are are really spoilt for choice. Variety is great, but it makes the decision-making process all the more overwhelming. The best course of action to take is to determine which roofing material will work best for your home style and design, the climate of the area in which you live, and of course, your budget.
Having worked in the area for years, Cittrix Roofing is best placed to know which roofing materials are recommended for Mundelein home styles. Below is our list of popular roofing materials for Mundelein home styles.
Asphalt shingles is the most popular roofing material for good reason. It’s a cost-effective option that doesn’t skimp on durability, can maintain a long lifespan and is very versatile in terms of aesthetics. Certain types of shingles, like architectural shingles, allow for customisation in a range of shapes and sizes, making it possible to mimic more premium roofing options.
Cedar roofs are popular for giving the home a beautiful rustic look, but one of its biggest advantages is its light weight. Many homeowners may not be aware, but the weight of your roofing material is an important consideration to make in terms of what the structure of the home can hold. Another great thing about cedar roofing is its affordability against other premium roofing alternatives.
The materials commonly used for flat roofs include gravel and modified bitumen. In our experience, a flat roof is easiest to maintain and repair compared to most other roof types. There is also no threat of losing shingles or boards as a result of strong winds, since the roof is a solid body made with materials impervious to winds.
