Your home’s roof is critical in safeguarding your investment and protecting your family. Planning roofing projects might not be the most exciting task, but ensuring that you make the right decisions for your home’s longevity and your wallet’s well-being is crucial. Arrowhead Roofing has put together this quick guide to help you confidently start your roofing project.
Choosing the Right Material for Your Roofing Project
The first and perhaps most crucial step in planning your roofing project is selecting the right roofing material. The material you choose should be well-suited to your local climate and provide the durability needed to withstand the elements. Here’s a brief overview of some common roofing materials:
Metal Roofing – Metal roofing panels and shingles have gained popularity due to their aesthetics and exceptional durability. They are lightweight, making them suitable for various architectural styles, and they can withstand harsh weather conditions, ensuring your roof lasts for years.

Noisy during rain (although some people love this!)
Slate Roofing – Slate roofing is renowned for its unparalleled durability and elegant appearance. Quarried in locations like Vermont, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, slate roofing can last for several decades. However, it’s essential to note that slate roofing can be expensive and challenging to install, making it an investment for those seeking top-tier performance.
Long lead times
Fragile and prone to chipping
Asphalt Shingles – Asphalt shingles are among the most popular roofing materials in the United States for several reasons. They are affordable, durable, and come in various styles and colors. Their durability depends on the quality of the materials, so it’s wise to choose reputable brands like GAF®.
Wide range of options
Limited design options

Complementing Your Home’s Exterior Design
Your roof isn’t just a protective shield; it’s also a significant contributor to your home’s curb appeal. When planning your roofing project, consider how your roof’s color and style will complement your home’s overall design. Coordinating color schemes can be a bit tricky, so it’s advisable to consult with professional residential or commercial roofers who can provide valuable insights and recommendations about which roofing material will best complement the architectural style of your home
