Need a new roof replacement? Consult with your trusted Cohasset roofer first to learn which material would be best for your home.

Benefits of Roofing Materials

Traditional Asphalt Roofing

Asphalt roofs are popular due to their affordability and ease of installation. They’re very common in Massachusetts and you will see them on most homes in the state. Not only are asphalt shingles cheaper to make, install, and replace, they hold up well for their value over time. They may be a lower-performing option in the face of heavy snow and extreme heat, and they don’t last as long as other materials, but they are a solid choice for neighborhoods in Mass.

Metal Roofing

If you want to make a significant investment in your home that you likely won’t have to replace in your lifetime, think about metal roofing. It’s a great choice for sustainability and durability, plus they are energy-efficient and can last up to 70 years. Known for their weather resistance, metal roofs hold up against water as well as wind speeds of up to 140 MPH. Plus, they also happen to be fire resistant. In addition, they are low maintenance, yet add a unique style to your MA home.

You may wonder what kind of metal roof is best for a home in this area. Choose from a wide range of options to customize your home improvement project. Popular metal roof materials include:

  • Aluminum Roofs
  • Rolled Corrugated Roofs
  • Standing Seam Roofs
  • Galvalume Roofs
  • Premium Steel Shingle Roofs

Metal and Shingle Combination Roofs

If you can’t decide between the two, you can always use both. There are many benefits to combination roofs, such as:

  • Lower cost: Metal is more expensive than asphalt shingles. So if you are deterred by the high cost of metal yet love the look, split the project to save money while getting the best of both worlds.
  • Beauty: When you combine different textures, materials and tones, the result is a layered look with more depth and visual interest than simply having one uniform material.
  • Timing: If different areas of your home were built at different times and as such don’t all need new roofing at once, go ahead and mix and match so you don’t have to replace the entire roof with one material.
  • Accent stand-alone features: Adding a different material on features like carports, pergolas, covered pool areas, and gazebos means you can further distinguish these elements from your main property.
