At Abby Windows & Exteriors, one of the leading roof replacement companies in Milwaukee, WI, we understand that replacing your roof is a big undertaking, which is why we’re committed to making the process as smooth and stress-free as possible. While it can be a costly project, often requiring the expertise of gutter replacement contractors and home insulation contractors, replacing your roof adds significant value to your home.
Your roof’s appearance has a big impact on your home’s overall look and feel. Excellent workmanship, proper framing and a meticulous installation are all key ingredients to a roof that looks beautiful and performs well for many years. But it is, arguably, your choice of roofing material that can truly bring your home to the next level.
Top Roofing Materials
Tile. Whether you choose clay or concrete, tile is an elegant-looking material that adds rich texture to your home. Usually available in flat, ribbed or scalloped variants, tile is known for its durability and longevity. However, tile is also expensive, heavy and requires additional framing. Style-wise, tile works well with Mediterranean, Southwestern, Spanish-style and Mission homes.
Metal roofs. Highly resistant to extreme weather, metal roofing comes in two profiles: panels and shingles. You can choose from a variety of options, including aluminum, copper, stainless steel and zinc.
Besides being lightweight, long-lasting and recyclable, metal boasts excellent longevity (it lasts longer than asphalt or wood) and offers high solar reflectance. It is relatively expensive but is also easily suited to a variety of home styles.For example, cabins and cottage-style homes look just as great as bungalows and contemporary homes with metal roofing.
Asphalt Roofs. The most common residential roofing material in the U.S., asphalt shingles, are economical and easy to install. Typically reinforced with fiberglass or organic materials (cellulose), asphalt roofing comes in a wide range of colors and is widely available.
Quality is critical when investing in asphalt shingles, which is why we recommend GAF’s Timberline Shingle, the number-one-selling shingle in the nation. GAF has won the women’s choice award five years in a row and is rated number one in shingle quality by homebuilders. As a GAF Certified Contractor, Abby Windows & Exteriors covers the entire roofing system, not just the shingles, with our warranty.
