Roofing Materials Do’s & Don’ts

  • Do consider different material options. – You don’t have to replace your existing roof with the exact same roofing material. Work with State Roofing to discuss the best options for your region.
  • Do select a desirable look. – A roof can last between 20 and 30 years, so it’s important to pick one that maximizes your curb appeal. Consult with State Roofing to view color and style options.
  • Don’t go against the HOA. – Some HOAs have regulations that forbid certain materials, colors or styles.  There is nothing worse than putting an expensive new roof on your home only to realize that it is not allowed by the HOA and you will have to start over!
  • Do check wind and fire ratings. – Most roofing materials come with ratings which will tell you the resistance to wind and fire. Not all manufacturers submit their materials for such testing, but GAF does. It is recommended that you select a product which has been rated.
