The cost of a new roof is no small investment, and many Tampa homeowners find it tough to pay for a roof replacement. Thankfully, there are a number of options to consider when determining how to pay for a roof replacement. Most roofing Tampa companies offer some form of financing. If your roof has sustained storm damage, your homeowner’s insurance may help you in paying for a new roof for your home. You can take out a home equity loan, or you can refinance your home and pull out cash to pay for a new roof.
The least expensive roofing material on the market is asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles are an excellent option for homeowners who have budgetary limitations. Homeowners also have numerous colors and styles from which to choose when it comes to shingles.
Roofs with light colored roofing material usually are cooler and more energy efficient than regular black shingles because they reflect light and heat rather than absorbing it. Another energy-efficient roofing material is metal roofing because it reflects light and heat.
Metal roofing is actually a better roofing option for your Tampa home than asphalt shingles because a metal roof is very long-lasting, energy efficient, and can block heat transmission to your home’s interior. Another advantage of metal roofing is that it is manufactured mostly from recycled materials, plus metal roofing can be recycled time and again.
