This Old House Guide to Upgrading Your Roof
You know it’s time. The signs are all there. Curling tiles. Several leaky areas. Faded coloring. There’s no doubt about it … it’s time to replace your roof.
For most homeowners, this is a once (or twice) in a lifetime experience. That means you’ll have questions. Fortunately the smart folks at This Old House magazine have created a start-to-finish online guide that gives you sensible information and great insights into different types of roofing options.
This Old House offers an 8-page downloadable lesson entitled “Read This Before You Upgrade Your Roofing.”
Our team at DaVinci Roofscapes worked with the editors at This Old House magazine while they created this handy online guide. In a straight-forward way, this piece gives you comparisons of synthetic roofing materials to real slate and shake, asphalt, clay and concrete tiles. It showcases the elements involved in the roofing process and describes “extras” you may wish to consider, such as solar panels, snow guards and rain collection systems.
Most of all the guide provides an easy-to-understand overview of synthetic shake and slate roofing tiles. You’ll learn the differences between textures, widths and butts, along with costs and upkeep information.
When it’s time to consider a new roof, there’s nothing like some straight-forward information to help you get started. At DaVinci Roofscapes we’re proud to have partnered with This Old House magazine to provide you with the insights you need for your roofing project.
