A new roof is a significant investment in your home or business. Whether your existing roof was damaged by a storm or just weathered by age, replacing it can be a daunting prospect, one that can be made much easier with the partnership of the right Central Texas roofing contractor.

Here are five things you need to know about getting a new roof.

You have options. Your new roof can be shingle, metal or tile. Each material has its benefits, but for most owners, it comes down to personal preference. Once you decide on your material, you will have even more decisions to make. Particularly for metal and shingle roofs, color choices are varied and – unless you are painting the exterior of your home or business as well – will need to coordinate with your existing exterior paint scheme.

You don’t want a storm chaser. The Texas weather is hard on roofs. From blistering sun to freezing temperatures and from ice storms to punishing hail the climate can be particularly brutal. You definitely will want a roofer that understands the impact of weather in the Central Texas area.

Many roofers chase storms, looking to cash in on all the work that results after a significant hail storm or other damaging weather event. An investment in a new roof should be trusted to a company with an established track record, not a fly-by-night operation that will not be here for the long haul.

It will improve your curb appeal. It does not matter if you choose a metal roof, a tile roof or a shingle roof, replacing your old roof and installing a new roof will improve the look of your home or business. Not only that, it will also increase the value of your property.
