As if the decision to reroof your home isn’t a big enough one on its own already, the homeowner is still left with the big variety of roof types to choose from. Many factors will determine what each individual or family opts for, such as design and personal preference, budget, and the structure of the home.
Having worked in the area for years and having installed many of these roofs ourselves, Pierce County Roofing can confidently advise on what the most common roof types in Lakewood are. Here’s the top three based on our clients and experience:
Asphalt shingles quickly became one of the most popular roofing types in Lakewood. This is because they offer a durable option, while also being cost-effective in comparison to more lavish roofing alternatives. Certain types of shingles, like architectural shingles, allow for customisation in a range of shapes and sizes, which is a big pull for homeowners. That ability to customise allows homeowners to present their own unique take on an existing popular roofing type.
Metal roofing has progressed in leaps and bounds to become one of the most viable roofing options for Lakewood homes. Homeowners love that it is really versatile and is able to be fashioned in a way that mimics the look and feel of most of the premium roofing alternatives, such as clay and slate for example. So you can get the expensive look without having to fork out the maximum.
Both clay and concrete tiles are widely used for roofs. A classic for residential and especially traditional roofing, tiled roofs are popular for their durability and longevity, with their aesthetic appeal being an added bonus. Tiles roofs will likely never have to be replaced in the homeowner’s lifetime as they are expected to last up to 100 years.
