Roof Material Enhances Home

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

We need a new roof. What looks better, a wood shake roof or composition roofing?



Dear Wondering,

The type of roofing material selected depends on your style of home and region or state of residence. Some regions have restrictions or banned wood shake roofs because they are a fire hazard.

The roofing material style and quality are important in order to enhance the curb appeal of your home. Composition shingle roofs are popular and more affordable, but may not enhance the look of your home. For example, on a brick Tudor style house, some people prefer a wood shake roof. Spanish or Mediterranean style homes look nice with clay tile roofs. Slate or stone roofs look fine on most any style home and cost the most, but lasts the longest.

Discuss the roofing material possibilities that would work best for your home with various roofing companies. Be sure and get written estimates before the work begins.
