What is the best Roofing Material for Your Home?

There is all kinds of weather that can tackle your Nebraska roofing. But, all roofing types are created to handle Mother Nature. There are specific areas in which some roofs excel. For example, in the Southeast you tend to see clay tile roofs because of the hot dry weather. In the Northeast you tend to see a lot of slate roofs to deal with the heavy snow. So what kind of roof would be best for your Nebraska roofing? We get all four seasons every year and there are three roof types that hold up with in our conditions.

Asphalt Shingles – most common roofing material for several reasons. They are cost efficient. Durable because they can handle snow, rain and heat. Asphalt shingles do not tend to last as long as other roof types, like cedar shakes and metal roofs.

Cedar Shakes – last longer than asphalt shingles. They allow air to circulate in the attic and provide great insulation. They do need proper maintenance though; cedar shakes need to be treated frequently to prevent mold and mildew.

Metal Roofs – they are practically maintenance-free, which is a big advantage for living in Nebraska and experiencing our four seasons of weather. Metal absorbs less heat when compared to asphalt shingles, but are a little more expensive.
