Posted on

Are you sick of traditional asphalt shingles? Do you want the exterior of your home to stand out from other homes in your neighborhood? If so, then you may want to consider one of these three roofing options to help add to the overall curb appeal of your house. 

Metal Roof

Metal roofs can either be done on the entire roof or just on an accent part like above dormers or the front porch. Metal roofs come in a variety of different finishes including copper, tin, or even a black tin. Depending on how much money you have and how much square footage you have to cover will help you and your metal roofing services company determine what type of finish is best for you. And, the good thing about metal roofs is that they don't just look good, but they are extremely durable in all types of weather conditions as well. 

Spanish Roof Tiles

If you have ever seen Spanish or Mexican style architecture, then you know just how popular Spanish inspired roof tiles are. Spanish tile roofs are great in hot climates because they don't hold onto the heat and are very durable. Typically, they aren't used in cold climates that receive a lot of snow because they may not be as resilient in the snow. If you want to add a Mediterranean vibe to your house, then make sure that you choose a Spanish roof to help you get the look that you've been wanting.

Typically, as long as the right material is placed underneath eh wooden shingles, then you shouldn't have any sort of problems, but your roofing company will be able to give you a better idea of what will work and what will not.
