If you are soon to be designing your very own house, there are many choices of roofing materials available today. Prior to making any commitments, it is wise to take a look at what is available, and this will allow you to make an informed decision.

Here are a few of the popular roof materials to consider:

  1. Slate Roofing –Timeless, elegant and still very popular, and with very affordable local roofing services in Clitheroe, you have a slate expert on your doorstep. A slate roof will last you for 25-30 years at least, and with regular maintenance, there’s little that can go wrong. Not the cheapest roofing solution, but perhaps the best.
  2. Traditional Shingle Roof – There’s a reason why so many UK homeowners choose a tiled roof, and with a price slightly lower than slate, you’d be hard pushed to beat a tiled roof. If you would like a quote for your new build, a Google search will bring up a list of all the local roofing companies, and you can spend some time viewing their websites.
  3. Felt Roof – This is a popular choice for flat roofs, and triple layers of bitumen felt, the roof can withstand the harsh British winter, and with galvanised steel flashing, a solid roof is the result.

If you want a roof with some character that will protect your home, while looking good in the process, slate is your best bet. By talking to a reputable roofing contractor, you can take a look at the man options and design yourself the perfect roof for your dream home.
