Of all the maintenance costs associated with a residence, roof replacement is one of the most costly, and many homeowners in the Annapolis area find it difficult to pay for a new roof installation. Here are some ways to pay for a roof replacement for your residence. Refinancing your home is one option to get the money you need to pay for a new roof, as is taking out a home equity loan. Most roofing Annapolis contractors offer some form of financing. If your roof has sustained storm damage, your insurance company may assist you in paying for a new roof for your residence.
The most economical roofing material available is asphalt shingles. Shingles are a suitable option for homeowners that have budgetary constraints. Homeowners also have numerous styles and colors from which to choose when it comes to asphalt shingles.
Roofs with light colored roofing material usually are cooler and more energy efficient than regular black asphalt shingles because they reflect light and heat rather than absorbing it. Another energy efficient roofing material is metal roofing because it reflects light and heat.
Metal roofs are considered a better alternative to asphalt shingles because metal roofing is more energy efficient because of their reflective properties and can block heat transmission to a home’s interior, a metal roof will last 2-3 times longer than a shingle roof, and it adds value to your residence. Also, metal roofing is made largely from recycled material, and metal roofing can be recycled time and again.
