Which Roof is Right for Your Garage?
Cars are an important part of our lives. They get used everyday. Many of us have a garage to store our prized possession in. This is especially important in northern climates where snow and ice can accumulate on outside parked cars. Further, a garage drastically reduces the chances of theft or vandalism.
These are just some of many reasons why garages are so important. When it comes to your garage, how do you know which roof will keep your car safe? In this video, you will learn more about which roof to ask your local roofing contractor about.
Some roofing materials, such as shingles, are likely to leak over time. This can happen due to age, puncturing, or simply from a strong storm. Shingles are affordable, but they do not provide high quality protection. On the other hand, metal or rubber roofs provide superior durability. They rarely if ever leak. This is true even in the strongest of storms. Further, these roofs can last around three times longer than asphalt shingle roofs. These roofs truly provide superior protection for your garage and everything in it. However, this quality does come at a cost. They cost around twice as much as shingle roofs. However, this cost can be drastically lowered by installing the roofing yourself.
