Choosing The Right Style Roof For Your Home

Choosing The Right Style Roof

Just like the proper outerwear for your family, the proper roofing style for your home can say a lot of about you.

You wouldn’t send your kids out to play on a snowy day in a T-shirt and flip flops, right? And we bet you wouldn’t send them to the pool in a parka, either.

Just like you take time to make sure you and your family have the right gear, you should also take the time to make sure you have the right roofing style for your home. While many people assume roofing styles are a “one-size-fits-all” kind of purchase, a roofing expert can help you decide on the right look, style and material for your home.

After all, your roof is one of your home’s best defenses against the elements. It should not only look good, but perform well in all weather.


So what is the right roofing style for your home? It depends. Most homes have asphalt shingles. These durable materials are the most popular style. They last a long time most warranties up to 50-years and come in many different colors and shapes – making customization easy. However, they do require regular maintenance but they are more affordable.

You may also see cedar shake roofs in the Bernardsville and Mendham area. This roofing style is pricey but it is durable and energy efficient! It takes a certain kind of home to pull this off – and it is a distinctive and classic look that lends an elegant air to your home.

Tile roofs are not as popular in the north as they are in the southwest because we don’t have the consistently hot weather and sun. This roofing style is also pricey but durable (it will last decades if properly maintained). This style looks best on Spanish-style homes.

If you travel to snowier climates, you probably have seen metal roofs. These  roofs can be costly but look great as an accent on a dormer, Shed roof or a bay or bow window. We have also installed a lot of Standing seam metal roofs on wrap around porches and portico’s.
