Roof coverings are what protects the inside of your home from the elements. The most common roof covering is made of asphalt shingles, but other materials used include cedar or pine shake, slate, tin and even sod. The type of roof covering you choose depends in large part on your budget and the climate where you live.
Roof coverings not only add beauty to the exterior of your home. They are the first line of defense in keeping rain water and melting snow from entering your attic and seeping into your walls. Depending on the materials used, a well-installed roof can last anywhere from 20 to 100 years.
Avoiding moisture in your home is important to keeping mold and mildew at bay. Excessive moisture can also cause your joists to rot over time and your foundation to crumble.
