Choosing a Roof System

When choosing the right type of roof for your home, you need options. At Lyons Contracting we offer a wide selection of quality roofing systems for your home. We won’t just tell you which style you should choose, we will work with you to find the best fit for your home’s existing structure and exterior décor.

There are a number of factors at play when choosing the right roofing system. Here is a look at three main components:

Quality Materials Make for Quality Roofing
Even the most highly skilled contractor in the world cannot install a quality roof without quality roofing materials. When you are choosing a roof the first thing you should look for is a contractor who is fully certified by reputable manufacturers and who backs their installations with manufacturer warranties. Without the proper training, you could be left with a roof that is not up to the task of protecting your home.

Style Isn’t Everything, But it is Important
The strength and durability of your roofing system is the most important aspect. Your roof is a key structural component of your home, keeping you and your family safe from the elements. That said, your home is a reflection of your personal sense of style, and the right roof can make a big difference in its curb appeal and overall value.

Where You Live Matters
The physical location of your home plays a vital part in the process of choosing a roofing system. The Northern Virginia region is home to a wide range of topographical areas, and some roofing systems do not work in some areas. For example, if you live in a heavily wooded area, a flat roof may not be for you, as it is more prone to gather the leaves, branches, and other debris that come with the landscape. However, if you live in a wide open area, one that sees a lot of sunlight, a flat roof may be your best option, as it can be designed to deflect sunlight, which can help lower your energy bills.
