Denver, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/05/2015 -- In his article "How to Choose a Roof for Your Home" improvement expert Joe Cuhaj tells "Todayshomeowner.com" readers about the importance of sound roofing materials. Joe Cuhaj writes, "There are a great many impressive roofing materials that most homeowners are barely aware of. They can choose between natural wood based materials or decide to use man-made options like sheet metal, asphalt or even polymers derived from plastics. Each type of roof has distinctive advantages and disadvantages. Smart homeowners should do their research thoroughly before beginning any home improvement job."
Meeting the needs of homeowners who wish to place the right roof on their structure is the web pages of AllTypesofRoofs.com. Spokesperson Jim Jacobsen explains the goals of this website, "It is imperative that homeowners choose the best materials when roofing their home. The roof is the all important protective surface of their house, whether this is a new building or an existing structure. We believe that every homeowner needs to learn about all the options that exist so that they can make a wise decision and avoid possible issues later on."
Jim elaborates, "We additionally developed the website alltypesofroofs.com to provide our readers with a myriad of articles about all aspects of roofing. Our writing staff and reporting team understand the needs of homeowners who are overwhelmed by the entire process. This is why our website features informative pieces about alternative materials, as well as how to hire the right person to tackle the job. We provide key information about hiring a roofing company and what one needs to ask before they begin in earnest. There are also tips for when to pay a roofing contractor, and how to make sure you receive the roofing materials that were specifically chosen for your home."
"We tell our readers to do all their research first." Jim Jacobsen continues, "In the United States, three quarters of the homes on the market are built utilizing asphalt roof shingles. This is primarily because they are inexpensive to install, highly durable and can be easily maintained. Unfortunately, these shingles do not provide as much insulation as other materials, with higher home utility costs being the result."
Jim elaborates, "Roofing shingles made from asphalt range from $50 to $100 per 100 feet of square footage. Each of these shingles are produced to have a lifespan of up to thirty years, depending upon individual weather conditions. While they may be commonly used, asphalt shingles are not eco-friendly and certainly not as decorative as other alternative options. This is exactly why our website encourages every homeowner to do their own careful cost analysis, to decide what type of roof will ultimately enhance their property investment."
