Roofers: They Get It You want a safe home. You want a warm home. And of course, you want an energy-efficient home. Do you know what can help you achieve all of these goals? Your roof. That's right, if you call up a roofer and tell them about your desires, they can recommend some roofing repairs or materials to help you achieve those desires. They may recommend a metal roof, or they might recommend adding zinc strips to the roof peak. It all depends. One thing we can promise, though, is that learning more about roofing is a good idea. This blog is a good resource, but we recommend looking for other ones, too.





Types Of Siding Your Roofing Contractor Can Install

At some point, every homeowner will take a look at their siding and upgrade it. Upgrading your siding may be due to the siding being old and out of date. You may also have weather damage that leaves your siding broken and chipped. Regardless of the reasons for the siding upgrade, you will need to decide on the type of siding you want. There are many types of siding to choose from. Here are some of the types and what to know about each one. 

Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is one of the most common for various reasons. Vinyl siding offers a wide range of personalization from colors to style. Vinyl also offers durability against pests and weather damage. With vinyl siding, you do not have to worry as much about water damage and certain storm effects that could damage wood siding. Vinyl siding is also easier to clean than brick siding as well. All of these benefits tend to fit well with a modern family home and design aesthetic. 

Board Siding

Board siding has a high durability which is vital in areas that see severe storms throughout the year. When you buy vinyl siding, you may have issues with the color fading or becoming darker in certain areas even during the installation process. When you order board siding, it is painted before shipping. This gives you a consistent color throughout the siding. Board siding is also ideal for inner coastal areas as well as country-style homes. 

Composite Siding

Composite siding has several benefits for residential property owners. Composite siding is very durable and does come with a longer warranty than other types of siding. Composite siding also fits most budgets so you may see it used for older home renovation as well as larger new home constructions. One key point to remember about composite siding is that it can be limited in style and color. This means if you have a unique idea in mind, you may not be able to find the siding you need. However, traditional colors are usually kept in stock. 

If you have a particular brand and type in mind, your roofing contractor can help you. They can also show you the upgrades and styles they are skilled at installing. This advice and suggestion can help you narrow down your choices so you can schedule an installation date.
