Discussing New Roof Installation Methods

In the previous article, we have talked about some roofing materials and the procedures for their installation. We have mentioned that the DIY approach to new roof installation is not always a good idea. However, it might successfully be used for layering new shingles on top of the old layer. so today we will continue our discussion on roof installation methods for other popular residential roofing materials.

Composite Roofing

Another material that is gaining popularity is polymer composed roofing. They offer a multi-width appearance that replicates hand-split real cedar shakes and looks quite attractive. These composite roofing materials come in many colors and color blends. This material is quite easy to install because of its lightweight characteristics. Moreover, it is 100-percent recyclable. Although composite roofing costs more than asphalt roofing, it’s a reasonable long-term investment. Modern composite materials may come with snap-fit tabs and a self-alignment ledge, which makes it a good option for DIY new roof installation. Roof installers may complete this type of roof installation quickly and accurately.

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing systems are favorites among many homeowners because of their lifelong durability when installed properly. Metal roofs may be available in a form of shingles, shakes, tiles, and standing-seam panels in a wide array of colors. Many metal roofs are very low weight and can be installed on top of the existing roofing material without adding much weight to the roof. Like any other roofing system, metal roofs must be properly installed which usually requires an assortment of tools and a knowledge of special techniques that only roofing experts with broad experience have.
