Of all the maintenance costs associated with a home, roof replacement is one of the most expensive, and many homeowners in the Palm Beach Gardens area find it difficult to pay for a new roof installation. Thankfully, there are a number of choices to consider when determining how to pay for a roof replacement. Refinancing your home is one way to get the money you need to pay for a new roof, as is taking out a home equity line of credit. Many Palm Beach Gardens roofing contractors offer financing. Your homeowner’s insurance may help in paying for a new roof if your roof has sustained damage from an accident or a storm.
Asphalt shingles are by far the most economical, and most popular roofing material available. Asphalt shingles are an excellent option for homeowners that have budgetary limitations. Another benefit of asphalt shingles is that they come in an assortment of colors and styles.
Light colored roofs are usually cooler than traditional dark asphalt shingles because they reflect light and heat instead of absorbing it. Also, metal roofs are cooler than regular shingle roofs since a metal roof is reflective in nature.
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 home. Another positive of metal roofing is that it is made mostly from recycled materials, plus metal roofing can be recycled over and over.
