The right type of roofing material will depend on many factors, including climate, style, and budget. Here are a few things to consider when choosing a new roof.

Choose a Material That Fits Your Budget.

A good rule of thumb is to select a material that costs less than half as much as the average cost of a new roof. This means you should avoid materials that cost more than £10 per square foot. If you’re looking at an asphalt shingle roof, for instance, you might find yourself paying between £1,000 and £2,500 per square foot.

Look at the Lifetime Cost of Maintenance.

Another thing to consider when choosing a roofing system is how easy it will be to maintain. You’ll need to make sure that the roofing system you choose has a lifetime warranty. It’s also important to think about the maintenance requirements of the roofing system. For example, some roofs require regular cleaning while others do not.

Think About the Noise Level.

If you live near an airport or busy highway, you might want to consider a quieter roofing system. However, if you live in a rural area, you might prefer a more traditional roofing system with fewer noise complaints.

Consider Other Options.

There are other options besides metal roofs and asphalt shingles. You should also consider the cost of maintenance and repair when choosing a roofing material.

Look at the Lifetime Cost of Ownership.

A good rule of thumb is to compare the lifetime cost of ownership (LCO) of different materials. This includes both the initial purchase price and ongoing costs such as repairs and replacement. If you plan to live in your house for more than 20 years, then you will likely need to replace your roof sooner rather than later.

An excellent experience from start to finish. David is very experienced in terms of site position, planning, seeing potential problems and finding good cost effective solutions. Dale and Dean were a pleasure to have working on site. As a family, we love our outdoor kitchen and cannot recommend it enough. The blinds and pivoting roof makes it a useable space for all seasons. I wouldn’thesitate to recommend David and his team to anyone.

I think sometimes, projects like this can be so overwhelming. Although, with David’s advice and wealth of knowledge, he was able to advise and help to design our outdoor kitchen which catered for all our needs and requests and all within our budget too. Thank you!

All about outdoor living came to see me and produced some amazing ideas, after getting the quotation and drawings I was pleasantly surprised it was in my budget. The workmen who carried out the job were clean and hard working, I can highly recommend this company for doing what they say they will do. Thank you David for overseeing the project and making the whole process comfortable for me.
