When it comes to building their custom dream home, many people spend a lot of time picking indoor furnishings and decor. However, choosing the right roofing option is just as important as your indoor décor, as it’s what will protect the inside of your home. Many people think that there’s only one option when it comes to roofing material—shingles—but there are a number of different materials that can protect your home and be a distinct design feature.
A metal roof is a great option for homeowners who don’t want to have to replace their roof. Many metal roofs can last 40 to 50 years with proper installation. In addition, metal roofs become an integral part of the whole home design.
Spanish tile roofs or slate roofs are definitely a niche roofing option. Depending on the style of your custom dream home, one of these options may add a strong design element to your home in addition to providing longevity to your roof.
There is a distinct look to wood shake and when properly used, can enhance your home and really make it stand out. While they have a long lifespan—up to 40 years—they do require some maintenance and upkeep.
A new option for custom homes is to install a living roof. Vegetation is placed over a waterproof membrane on the roof to increase the home’s efficiency. As construction continues to go green, you’ll likely see this roofing option become more popular.
