If you take good care of your roof and keep up with regular maintenance, you can expect it to protect your home well from the elements over the years. But even with regular upkeep and care, every residential roof will eventually need to be replaced entirely. When you’re ready to replace your roof, you’ll need to decide which material and style are right for your home.


At J&J Roofing in Roseville, we install replacement roofs for homeowners in the Macomb County region. Here’s what you need to know before selecting the best roofing material for your home.

Choosing the Right Residential Roof For Your Home

Your roof provides an important line of defense for your home against the elements. At the same time, it plays a vital role in helping to control the interior comfort levels within your home. It’s also one of the most significant investments you’ll ever make in your home, which is why it’s important to choose the right material for your home and budget.


Here are a few things you’ll need to consider when choosing your roofing material:

1.   The Right Color

When choosing the right color and style for your roof, there are a few things you’ll want to take into consideration. If you live in a neighborhood where a specific roof color is dominant, you may wish to choose something similar so your home blends in. It’s also a good idea to check with your HOA if you have one.

2.   Architectural Style

Make sure your shingles coordinate well with your siding or bricks and architectural details as well. Some homes may be better suited to the depth and texture of architectural shingles like CertainTeed’s Grand Manor, while other homeowners prefer the simplicity of traditional asphalt shingles.

3.   Durability of Material

When considering the durability of roofing materials, it’s a good idea to consider how long you want your roof to last and the kind of weather and elements it will be exposed to. Be sure to choose shingles that offer wind resistance, fire resistance, tear resistance, and wind-driven rain resistance.

4.   Warranty

A good warranty gives you the peace of mind that comes with knowing you can count on your roof for many years to come and the company that manufactures it will stand by its product completely.
