Roofing Monroe, NC

Roofing Monroe, NC

Monroe has quickly become a favorite destination for anyone looking to call metro Charlotte home without moving directly into the big city. With a population that has increased by nearly 10 percent over the last decade, Monroe's growth is showing no signs of stopping. This means if you own a home here, the property value will likely increase, and more buyers will be looking for a house like yours. To maximize your selling potential, you need to care of your home and make necessary upgrades to it, including the eventual installation of a new roof.

To best care for your roof, complete the required repairs, and perform the eventual installation, it is essential to partner with a local professional contractor. And while many contractors in the area offer roofing services, the team at Charlotte Roofing Specialists is one of the few that specializes in roofing maintenance and new roof installation.

Asphalt Shingle

When it comes to the installation of a new roof, no other material is used as often as asphalt. Now, roll-out asphalt is available, where the roofing material is rolled out and installed. This particular design is more typical for a slight-incline roof and generally doesn't have a long life expectancy.

Instead, if slope allows, asphalt shingles are the way to go if you want this building material. It is a cost-effective option that will look good and give you a durable material that can last you decades when taken care of.

The better you take care of this material (which means having it inspected by a contractor annually to make any necessary minor repairs before the small issues can transform into significant problems), the more life you will squeeze out of the roof.

Wood Shakes

Wood shakes aren’t always the most user-friendly roofing as they may take additional upkeep and care to maintain. Wood shakes are also very expensive relative to asphalt shingles. Yet for many, the price and maintenance are well worth the look a wood shake roof brings to the table. It's hard to argue the natural beauty of wood. There's nothing else like it on the market, and with some home-build styles, it is the way to go. However, before you go this route, you will need to go over a series of upkeep instructions.

Because while wood can last as long as asphalt, if you don't take proper care of wood shingles, the entire roof or large sections will have to be repaired or replaced sooner than you'd like. If leaves, debris, etc. build up in valleys, the shakes will hold moisture and never dry out, resulting in rotted shakes.

Metal Roofs

Metal roofing has exploded in popularity. In general, there are two kinds of metals used, and from there, two styles of roofs as well. First, metal roofs are usually 24 gauge or aluminum. Aluminum is lighter weight (which is always a benefit when it comes to your roof), and is less likely to rust if scratched. On the flip side, steel is very strong, and slightly less expensive than aluminum.

In terms of style, the vast majority of metal roofs are comprised of standing seam panels. This is what most folks think of when they think of a metal roof. While not as common, there are manufacturers producing metal shingles. Their appearance is more textured than standing seam, but often have some designer element which may complement the visual of your home. On the other hand, the metal panels are faster to install (which usually helps bring down the installation cost), although they won't have the same textural design as metal shingles.

While metal does have a more expensive up-front cost, with proper care, you can get nearly 50 years of life out of this material (both metals and build styles). So, if you like the look of metal and want to avoid ever installing another roof again on your property likely, metal is a great option.

Slate Roof

A slate roof is stunning. There really is nothing else on the market like it. It brings an organic stone look to your roof. While the wood shingle might offer a historic cabin feel, a slate roof provides an elegant, high-end English manor look. Now, slate is expensive. It is one of the more expensive build materials for your new roof, but if you can afford it, it is worth the price.

Beyond the incredible look slate brings, it is one of the longest-lasting roofing materials on the market. A slate roof will not only last your lifetime, but when cared for, slate can last your children's lives.

The life of a slate roof can easily exceed 75 years. So, when factoring in inflation and the cost of having additional roofs installed over the subsequent decades, no other material will give you a better bang for your roofing buck than slate.
