The cost of a new roof is no small investment, and many West Palm Beach homeowners find it difficult to afford a roof replacement. Here are some different ways to pay for a new roof installation for your home. Your homeowner’s insurance may assist in paying for a roof replacement if your roof has sustained damage from an accident or a storm. Refinancing your home is one way to get the cash you need to pay for a new roof, as is taking out a home equity line of credit. Many West Palm Beach roofing contractors offer financing.
Asphalt shingles are the most economical roofing material on the market. For homeowners with budgetary limitations, asphalt shingles are a great choice. Homeowners also have numerous styles and colors from which to choose when it comes to asphalt shingles.
Light colored roofs are usually cooler than traditional dark asphalt shingles because they reflect light and heat rather than absorbing it. Metal roofing also tends to be cooler than traditional shingle roofs because a metal roof is reflective.
Metal roofing is considered a better alternative to regular shingles because metal roofing is more energy efficient because of their reflective properties and can block heat transmission to a home’s interior, a metal roof will last two to three longer than a shingle roof, and it adds value to your home. Also, metal roofing is made largely from recycled material, and metal roofing can be recycled time and again.
