There are four main considerations when it comes to new roofs:

  • Cost
  • Durability
  • Aesthetics
  • Architectural style


Don't forget that a roof must provide two primary functions. If a roof fails to provide either of these functions, all of the above considerations are worthless. Those functions are:

  • Keeping water out
  • Proper ventilation


When comparing roofing materials, you may want to compare:

  • Energy Star rating
  • Impact resistance
  • Wind test results
  • Fire rating
  • Fade resistance
  • Algae resistance
  • Color options
  • Design (rustic, soft, solar reflective, muted shadow, clean lines, etc.)
  • Type (i.e. laminated, 3 tab, etc)
  • "Green" manufacturing techniques
  • Manufacturer's warranty
  • Unique advantages
