Balancing Price and Quality

When choosing your roofing material, two of the biggest driving factors will be the quality of the product and your budget. While we would all love to go with the top-of-the-line roofing materials, that’s not always possible. Instead, we have to choose the best roofing materials for our individual needs that are within our budget. 

It’s essential to choose a quality roofing material because your roof protects your home, your family, and all of your belongings inside of it. In addition, a higher quality roof will last longer, so you won’t have to invest in a brand new roof again in the near future. Quality is essential and one of the most important factors that you should consider when choosing a roofing material. 

However, with that being said, most homeowners have a budget that they must remain within. At Denali Roofing, we work with homeowners with budgets of all kinds and we can help you find the roofing material that will work best for you. We also have special financing available through Wells Fargo to help you cover the cost of your new roof and other home improvement projects. 

Roofing Materials

There are a number of roofing materials available today, and each is ideal for different purposes. One of the most important things to think about when choosing a roofing material is your specific needs. Are you looking for something that will blend with the natural environment? Are you searching for a roofing material that will hold up especially well through hail storms? Understanding the answers to these questions will help you to narrow down your choices when it comes to roofing materials. 

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt shingles, also sometimes referred to as composition shingles, are the most commonly used roofing shingle out there. They are one of the most affordable roofing material options and installation is fairly quick. However, they may not last quite as long as some other premium roofing materials. 

Wood Shingles and Shakes

Wood shingles and shakes are a beautiful roofing material that can contribute to the natural-looking aesthetic of your home. However, you must be careful to choose ones that feature a fire-resistant treatment since wood is quite flammable. There may also be local ordinances or laws referring to the use of wooden roofing materials. 

Metal Roofing Panels and Shingles

Metal roofs are quite tempting as they can add a beautiful aesthetic to almost any home. Metal shingles also tend to last longer and hold up to the intense Colorado hail storms a bit better than asphalt shingles. However, they do come with a higher price tag. For those who can afford metal roofing panels and shingles, they may be the right choice for a long-lasting, quality roof.

Synthetic Roofing Shakes and Shingles

Synthetic roofing materials are designed to look like slate or wooden shingles. They can be quite fire-resistant and impact-resistant. They are a good choice for those who want the look of wood or slate without the price tag.
