Crown Your Home with a Beautiful Roof

Like the hair on your head crowns your face and finishes the beauty that encompasses you, your roof is the crowning glory of your home. You value the beauty and architecture found in your Northern California neighborhood and you want your newly renovated home to reflect that beauty found in the homes in your neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods. You want to find a Palo Alto roofing company who has the same vision of high-quality materials and installation services.

Asphalt Shingles

You can get high quality without spending an arm and a leg. Many homes have asphalt shingles; this roofing material is low in cost and gives a high return for durability. Many asphalt shingled roofs last at least a decade before shingles need to be repaired and much longer before a total re-do is needed. These two qualities make asphalt shingles the choice of many home owners. The only drawback to this type of roofing material is that it is lacking in architectural beauty and interest department.

Clay Tiles

This type of high-quality material is not lacking in the architectural beauty and interest department. It is part of many styles of architecture including the Spanish style homes often found in California. Clay tiles are durable and can last for many decades with correct installation. The only negating factor is the fact that this type of roofing can be a little pricier than asphalt shingles. You do make up for the price difference when you factor in the durability and long life.

Wood Shingles and Shakes

The final product to be discussed that is offered by most Palo Alto roofing companies is wood shingles and shakes. This beautiful style of roof is made with hewn wood shingles or shakes. The beauty of the wood is constant even as the color of the wood weathers and changes. This type of roofing has been around for centuries due to the ease of changing out broken or worn shingles or shakes. The wood lasts for many, many years and is a little more expensive than asphalt shingles, but not commonly more expensive than clay tiles, making it a popular choice for many homeowners.
