Installing a roof is one of the most critical aspects of building a home. Most homeowners want a roof that looks good, is long lasting and requires little maintenance, and falls within their budget. Roofs that are not installed professionally may provide inadequate insulation for the home or poor protection from the elements. Without adequate maintenance a roof may require frequent repairs, and a shorter life span means replacing the roof every 10 to 15 years.
Professional installation of the right style of roof using suitable materials can yield substantial savings for the homeowner in repair and maintenance costs, create a lower environmental impact and reduce the demand on energy and natural resources.
This eBook provides readers with comprehensive information to help new homeowners choose a roof. It gives details about the most commonly used roof styles and materials, their benefits and disadvantages, and various methods of installation. It highlights the type of damage that roofs typically sustain and provides advice to help homeowners decide whether they should repair or replace a damaged roof.
