It's a very important decision!

Are you planning to replace your old roof or build a new home? One of the most important decisions you’ll have to make is choosing the right roofing material.

Choosing the right roof for your home is a significant decision that requires careful consideration. Your roof is one of the most important components of your home’s structure, protecting it from the elements and contributing to its overall appearance and value. The type of roofing material you choose should be based on several factors, such as climate, durability, aesthetics, and budget.

You’ll also need to consider factors like the slope and shape of your roof, as well as any local building codes and regulations. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming to decide which type of roof is best for your needs. That’s why it’s essential to work with a reputable roofing contractor who can provide expert advice and guidance. They can help you select the right roofing material that suits your specific needs, budget, and style preferences.

Factors to consider when selecting a roofing material

  1. Climate: The type of roofing material you choose should be able to withstand the weather conditions in your area. For example, if you live in an area with heavy rainfall, you’ll need a material that’s highly resistant to water damage.
  2. Durability: Your roof is a long-term investment, so you want to choose a material that will last for many years. Look for materials that have a proven track record of durability and longevity.
  3. Aesthetics: Your roof plays a big role in your home’s curb appeal, so you’ll want to choose a material that complements your home’s style and architecture.
  4. Budget: Of course, you’ll need to consider your budget when selecting a roofing material. Some materials are more expensive than others, but they may also provide greater benefits in terms of durability and energy efficiency.

    After the strong winds last week we urgently needed a roof repair to several ridge tiles and leaky guttering. Called Windsor roofing who came straight out to look at the damage and came when said to make repairs. Great job done, very professional and helpful. Would use again without hesitation

    Got a quote before moving into a property in Birmingham, once moved in I called Martin to ask when he could begin. He was very responsive and answered any questions, started work within a few days, scaffolding up very quickly ready to begin. Did a combination of repairs we needed, very professional, great quality work, he explained everything he was doing and always showed me what he had done. Himself and his colleague were also very polite and friendly, especially with my 3 children running about in the garden having a nose. Would definitely recommend. Everything completed in a timely manner and also left clean and tidy.

    Martin fitted new fascia and guttering to my roof and re bedded the ridge tiles using a modern system, namely the Dry Ridge which doesn't need any cementing. Martin and his colleague were prompt, reliable really good workers. My roof is guaranteed for at last15 years cannot ask for more. Thank you Martin.

    Martin was very knowledgeable and professional. He arrived on time, and performed a high quality job. Moreover, he was very responsive to any queries that I had over text message. I would happily recommend to all.

    Although only a small job (one roof tile and a ridge tile) to repair the work was carried out quickly and to a high standard. Friendly service and polite behaviour both earn a recommendation.

    In the past, I've had a bad experience of cowboy builders who have given a 25 year guarantee but done a rubbish job and consequently gone out of business. I was therefore very cautious and had two other quotes and a number of "no shows" but Martin's quote was reasonable and he explained exactly what he would do. He was reliable, friendly and polite and obviously has pride in his workmanship. He provided photos at each stage of the process and left everything immaculate. I would definitely recommend him.
