Remember when every house had an asphalt roof?
Next time you walk through your neighbourhood, look up and you’ll see a variety of roofing materials, from cedar shake and asphalt shingles to tile and metal, each in a variety of different profiles. But what is the right roof for you and for your home?
What factors should be considered? How do you view your roof — as a necessary expense every 10 to 15 years, or as a one-time investment that will add value and protection to your property?
Choosing the right system is an important choice and one you should be fully informed about.
That’s why we’ve put this Roofing Guide together, to help you make the decision that’s right for you and your home.
